Count Your Life With Smiles

This post has a few random pictures taken in late summer.
I share them here,for no other reason,but that I like them and hope you do to.
I have little or nothing to say about each photo,so once again,I am adding short quotes from a booklet called 'Little Whispers of Comfort for Busy Women'. I do believe that these quotes apply,not only to women,but to men as well.


Once you choose hope,anything is possible.
Christopher Reeve


Your worth and purpose in this life do not depend on who you are,on what you have done,or on what has been done to you…….Your worth and purpose depend on God and God alone.
Kay Arthur


Count the garden by the flowers,never by the leaves that fall.Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll.
Unknown


Better to lose count while naming your blessings than to lose your blessings to counting troubles.
Maltbie Davenport Babcock


Yet, in the maddening maze of things,and tossed by storm and flood,to one fixed trust my spirit clings;I know that God is good.
John Greenleaf Whittier


Yes God is good and He is in control!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous post, Ruth. I love your beautiful photos and also the words.... Got stuck on the quote about enjoying the flowers in the garden and not the leaves.... Had to snicker since we NOW have so many leaves... BUT--even the leaves are gorgeous.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  13. i think that is one of the most toughest struggles for me ... giving all control over. i think it is tough just laying back & realize you have no control what so ever. i think we are human & some control, or wanting to control is part of us. i think? right? have a lovely day. gorgeous blooms. so happy & springy.
