Sun, Sea and Sky Watch


Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
-Victor Hugo

Enjoying the sunshine of California
through the lens of Juan and Rachael's camera.
I love looking at the sun's rays and the sparkling diamonds of sunlight on the water.
~ Now I only need wings ~

-Albert Schweitzer:
Constant kindness can accomplish much.
As the sun makes ice melt,
kindness causes
misunderstanding,
mistrust,
and
hostility
to
e v a p o r a t e.

 *)(  A joyful heart makes a cheerful face  )(*
-Proverbs 15:13

May joyful hearts and cheerful faces
surround you and warm you
with lovely sunshine
~ always ~

Rachael captured the beauty of the moment splendidly! Now I have California on my wish list too ^_~
A Joyful heart makes a cheerful face, beautiful words. I had to type it here so the words stick in my head for ever.
I see several American and Canadian ladies celebrating Spring holiday, is yours about to begin too? Do you have any plans?
We have a quite and peaceful weekend ahead, no plans just the six of us, the garden and my favorite magazine, I wish I could find the courage to start the book that has been waiting on the bookshelf for more than 3 months now.
A big kiss to you my friend xxx

The other day a friend smiled - her beautiful, loving smile - and it warmed my heart. There is such ministry in laughter and smiles and kindness.
Thank you for your lovely, gentle reminders Maria.

Hello Maria, thank you for your comment on my post today, it is so kind of you. I wish I could send you some of the warmth from over here; it has been warm again today, although a little less sunny than in the week, however, faithful as ever, I went to the garden and enjoyed my lunch with my cat this time! A pleasure. There are a couple of clouds showing up now, but there's still a nice 18C temperature, makes me want to sing. Back to my little craft, as you could see, feeling a lot better nowadays. Thanks for your more frequent posts, and for calming my spirit every single time. Love, Lori xxx
