PARIS! Why must it be so hard to choose my most favorite photos? ! There are so many of mine that tell so many different stories...each one is a journey ...a journey of JOY and happiness for me personally! I am choosing and sharing a few that represent, in color, the beautiful sights of Paris! I am filled with gratitude for the blessings of our trip earlier this month! Just as being in the presence of a thankful person brings us refreshment, I can honestly say THIS is how Paris sort of makes one feel, refreshed! You don't see many grim, joyless people around Notre Dame or the Eiffel Tower. Everyone has a smile and excitement is on the faces of almost everyone who is visiting the city of lights. Even the Parisians seem to be happier people, excited to share their joy of their beloved city.
Enjoy the beauty of some of my favorites....every corner is a snapshot! I hope your week ahead is filled with beauty and with joy. These are attributes that can truly be found anywhere if we take the time to cultivate them in our own hearts and then pass them on!
DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER....I pray we can all focus more on the beautiful surroundings of our day, I think all of us with your grace and goodness can be more grateful for the blessings in our lives! Yes Lord, each and every day! "We give thanks to you, O God: we give thanks, for your name is near!" Psalm 75:1
"Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what The Lord hath done."
