A Walk and Words of Encouragement

Can you stand another walk at Lake Minniwasta?
These pictures were taken in the middle of April,so I really need to go back now when all the trees are green.

Today I share pictures and verses or quotes which I like.The words don't necessarily have anything to do with the pictures.


When one door of happiness closes,another door opens;but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
Hellen Keller


Never lose hope.
Always have faith,it allows you to cope.
Trying times will pass as they always do.
Just have patience,your dreams will come true.
Put on a smile,you will live through your pain.
Know this will pass,and strength you will gain.

Discontentment makes rich people poor,while contentment makes poor people rich.


Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones,youll start having positive results.


I trust that a word or two that I have shared today,was just what you needed to read.

Hi Ruth, Another excellent post ... Thank you for the encouragement! Have a wonderful weekend!

Ruth, I've looked over all you recent posts and they are so full of wonderful images. I love your capture of the Red-tailed Hawk. I haven't been ignoring you! We've been across country and back for the past few weeks. Just back yesterday and I'm not trying to get caught up. The weather in Manitoba wasn't all the terrific, but we managed to have a great time. Gots some shots of Pelicans in Lockport and at Seven Sisters on the Winnipeg River. Also got some interesting birds along Reed Lake and Herbert in Sask! And needless to say, lots of scenery shots! To the total of almost 3000 shots. So, lots of new stuff coming on my blogs!

Anni said...
