Celebrate

Truckin' Flowers - Taos, NM
"Each day, awakening, are we asked to paint the sky blue? Need we coax the sun to rise or flowers to bloom? Need we teach birds to sing, or children to laugh, or lovers to kiss? No, though we think the world imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. We are asked only to appreciate them, and to show appreciation by living in peaceful harmony amidst them. The Creator does not ask that we create a perfect world; He asks that we celebrate it." ~Robert Brault


Go out and celebrate God's world today. 
Blessings,


Nancy

  18. oh no! the word verification is still active!

    (if you are on the new blogger interface, you have to switch back to the old one to say NO to word verification. click on the little 'cog' icon near the upper right hand corner when you're in your blog settings page, then select old blogger interface. then go to settings-comments to get to it. i don't know WHY blogger won't put it into their new interface!!!)
