Being Grateful

November's arrival has me focusing on being grateful.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner (here in America) it is nice to consider all the blessings one enjoys.

Such as beauty found in a blue sky...

wildflowers pushing their way through an old pile of wood posts...

a solitary posy bravely reaching for the sun's rays...

 simple leaves and weeds to sketch...

and last but not least - all of you who show up faithfully each week to pay me a visit.

God Bless


"How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you."   1 Thessalonians 3:9

    as i always say that REALIZATION OF HAVING BLESSINGS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAT EVEN BLESSINGS because if we are not able to feel what we have everything goes waste
    and life seems miserable
