An Autumn Quietness...

Good Afternoon to you!
  Here is a quiet little thought to bring quiet joy for you as our lives tend to be a little hectic sometimes...

                                                              ~Thomas Kinkade

There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude,
 a quiet joy.
                                  - Ralph H. Blum


May you be able to slow down today and live in a calmness filled with gratitude...such a quiet joy!

Psalm 28:7

Carolyn,
Thank you so much for joining me on the journey - I look forward to following you, too! OK, I am sobbing over yesterday's post. What a precious couple - both of them. And what a powerful message you attached. We have much to be grateful for - especially for a God that LOVES us!

The verse from Psalms was wonderful, too.

I want to practice gratitude - in ALL things - and have my life full of a calm and quiet joy.

GOD BLESS!

Can I tell you how much I appreciate you posting such a lovely image? Fall in Phoenix is non existent. So this was nice.

Hi Carolyn! What a nice surprise that you visited my blog! And what a sweetie you are! I read your profile, and we sure have a lot in common! I really look forward to getting to know you better! With my new shop, I don't get to visit as much as I'd like, but I will do my best to visit pretty regularly!

Have a blessed Thursday!
HUGS

Thanks for sharing this beautiful quote. The music is so nice too. Just what I needed after an unusually hectic day.
Isn't God good? He always knows what we need and directs us to it.
Have a blessed evening, Annette
