Thanks God

Cross

“Thanks God” is a series of reminders of how we can stop and give thanks in our day to day lives.

These can help you live each day knowing you can have faith in something bigger than yourself.   Don’t let your feelings rule you and let your mind convince you otherwise.  Emulate good fruit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Know what you say and do makes a difference in the world and others.

Idyllic

Why can’t we all get along?  How many times has this statement been used?  Sadly it is probably true in so many ways we wouldn’t know where to count.

It’d have to be a place of peace and harmony.  Check your ego at the door type of lifestyle.

Maybe a place where we strived to help, be helped and where there was no judgement.

Smile today and make a difference in one persons life.  Maybe that’s where we begin.

Intricate

Sun Ray | Pacific Ocean

I’ve always had a love affair with the sea.  It mesmerizes me with all its beauty and mysteries.   I suppose I have my father to thank for that as I grew up always somehow being on it or around it.

This image caught my eye recently as I result of the itricate rays drawing me onto the ocean surface.  I love how it pulls you to the sun almost as a beckoning call.

Los Angeles, California | Santa Monica Pier

During a recent trip to Los Angeles, I stopped by the Santa Monica Pier.  After taking sunset set photos by the shore I was walking back and noticed how lovely the lighting was from afar and took this shot.  Alough blurry, I thought it was beautiful all the same.

Wishing Well

WellThis intricate design was found while looking down a wishing well at Disneyland.  What a beautiful array of colors and patterns wrapped around and throughout the water.

Motion

Motion

Freezing a moment in time.

On a recent visit to Sarah P. Duke Gardens at Duke University I came across this lovely fountain at the entrance.  As I walked closer to it, I was struck by the various motions of the water from underneath .

Serenity

Sunset

Glorious sunset in San Pedro California.

To find serenity in our lifetime is a true gift.  It could be a moment in time that puts us at ease in a way that can be difficult to describe.  Often times it may feel like its out of reach as a result of struggles with various aspects of our lives.

How do we get to this place?  Is it a special location or is it something or someone that inspires you?  Is it something we can capture?  More importantly, maybe it’s the simple understanding that it is possible.

Who doesn’t yearn for serenity in their life?  We need it as individuals and can use our gifts to help aid others in their walk through life.

This photo was taken at a location that I stumbled across while driving around San Pedro, California.  When I saw it I wondered if my father had been here as well.  He grew up here and always spoke of his love of the sea.  Did he find serenity here as well and was I seeing it perhaps as he did?  I’m going to assume that he did and that gives me serenity believing so.
