Thoughts to Encourage

For this post I have a set of random images,combined with quotes I found in a perpetual calendar,called The Beauty of Friendship.


Your only treasures are those which you carry in your heart.

This plant sprouted in one of my flower pots.I think it came from some of the bird feed.


Kindness opens in each heart a little heaven.


The moments of happiness that we enjoy take us by surprise.
It is not that we seize them but that they seize us.


God's heart is the most sensitive and tender of all.
No act goes unnoticed,no matter how insignificant or small.


Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about?
It just makes me feel glad to be alive - it's such an interesting world.
It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything.

Life is like an exciting book,
and every year,perhaps even,every day starts a new chapter.

Beautiful colours in the first image.. and such luscious looking berries in the next. Great shot of the moon but my favourite is of the wagon wheels in the setting sun. Fine photos.

love the wheels silhouetted in the sunset!

Barb said...

Those wagon wheels in the sun's last glow are wonderful. It looks like you're getting fall berries, Ruth. Still learning the ins and outs of my camera, but I'm liking it!

Ginny Hartzler said...

You are right! We need mystery and wonder. and all these pictures are wondrous. The moon is lovely. What are the berries?

Beautiful quotations with such gorgeous images. I think the two of the silhouetted wagon steals the show.

the wagon wheel photos are my favorites and I love the quote Kindness opens in each heart a little heaven.
that is so true as are all the quotes. just one kind act, that cost nothing but effort can change a whole day in an instant.

A wonderful selection of quotes with outstanding photographs to accompany them. I especially love the silhouette images.

Wonderful inspirational quotes, Ruth. And I so agree that I'm happy that some things are not totally understood by humans. Life truly is an exciting book.
