When Times Get Tough…Remember Your Blessings…

As I look back over my life and all that God has allowed me to experience on this earth, I am grateful.  I am taking a couple of weeks off from thinking too much…a mental health break… and have decided to share some of my favorite photos with you instead.  As you view the various photos, reflect.  What kind of God could imagine all of these things and create them so beautifully for us to enjoy?  Our God, The One and Only, The Almighty, Creator of the Heavens and the Earth!  Praise Him for His wondrous works!

Psalm 150:6  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.  Praise the Lord.

Romans 1:20  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—

have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
