The Day the Paint Fell from Heaven

We live in an awesome world.

Take the time to look around-

Appreciate the beauty we have been given-

Even on the grayest of days, we can trust
that the sunshine will come again-

God has the most perfect plan for us-

Live Simply-

Live generously-

Care deeply-

Speak kindly-

Have a better than average, extraordinary day-

Remember to look around and say thank you-

We each have been given the gift of 86,400 seconds today.
Have you used one to say thank you?

Thank you to my friend, Marilyn T., for sending me these awesome pictures today. Because of you, I have taken the time to say thank you God, for your beautiful gifts to our world and to me. I don't often think of this, but I am thankful today, too, for the gift He has granted me...the gift of art! Thank you Lord for teaching me to look and for teaching me to record a small portion of this beauty through my painting!

Great post Carol! I think I say thanks or thank you often each day so today, instead, when I say it I'm going to think about it and really mean it.

Beautiful pictures. Almost as good as your art, I'd say!

"Thank you" is one of those expressions we take a little lightly, don't we? I'm gonna try and work on that.
