Embracing Life



Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing.

Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here’s what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful; Snub evil and cultivate good; run after peace for all you’re worth. God looks on all this with approval, listening and responding well to what he’s asked; But he turns his back on those who do evil things. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭3‬:‭8-12‬ MSG)

On today’s walk a neighbor was a blessing to me and my 3 1/2 month old pup.  She asked if he wanted to play in her yard with her 2 dogs for a few minutes.  My puppy, Cal loves to play with other dogs, so sure thing!  We had a nice chat and she offered Cal two bowls of much needed water and a treat.  This lady understands what her job is — to be a blessing!  🙂

Pictures are a blessing to me 🙂 —- The hunting for what to snap today — Thankfully taking the shots — Sharing a few of those with others with the intention to bless.



Photo Frame

After reading this inspiring post all about how to frame my subject, I decided find a few photos where I framed a subject.

About this photo:  I used my window as a mirror to reflect my camera shooting some white, rain dropped petals.  My hand and camera are framed by my reflection in my car’s window and the petal is framed by my carmera 😉
