Friendships and Sunsets

The following pictures are all taken in one evening and at one place.The varying beauty of a sunset never ceases to amaze me.
I am adding quotes from a little booklet called "Two Voices One Song  The Harmony of Friends".


There are not many things in life so beautiful as true friendship,and there are not many things more uncommon.



Every day shared with the ones we love is a gift for which we are very thankful.


A smile is the lighting system of the face and the heating system of the heart.
(Barbara Johnson)


Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want,but the realization of how much you already have.


Love is reaching,touching,and caring,sharing sunshine and flowers;so many happy hours together.


May the Lord continually bless you with heaven's blessings as well as with human joys.
Psalm 128:5 TLB
