More From The Peace Gardens and Happy Thanksgiving

On this Weekend where we in Canada celebrate Thanksgiving,I will continue to share pictures from The Peace Gardens.I have so much to be thankful for, that if I were to begin a list it would go on for a very long time.I will say that I am most thankful that I am a child of God and that He cares for me.Secondly,I am so thankful for my family and my friends.

I am sharing some verses that have been a blessing to me,I trust that they will do the same for you today.

Place your hope in God,He won’t let you down.

Happiness comes a lot easier when you stop complaining about your problems and start being thankful for the problems you don’t have.

Never let the things you WANT make you forget that things you HAVE.

Your friendship is a daily reminder that life is lovely and God is good.

Too blessed to be stressed,

Too grateful to be hateful,

Too anointed to be disappointed!

It’s up to us to see the beauty in everyday things.

God created you and thinks you’re beautiful just as you are

You’ll never regret going out of your way to brighten someone’s day.

Today I just want to thank God for the gift of life.
No requests,no complaints,just thankful to be alive.

daily reminders that are good for all of us. my friend was complaining that her house needed cleaning, she was really complaining. i told her how lucky she was to have such a beautiful home that got dirty. sometimes we forget.

your images are beautiful, the garden i just visited had a similar cacti garden!!

i have a few of those nightscape pictures scheduled to post tomorrow. 3 of them were taken in the cacti garden room!!!
