So Many Things To Be Thankful For

Sometimes, we are too busy going about our daily business that we forget to be thankful for the things and the people in our lives. When we begin to be thankful, we cease to complain. I am thankful for good health that hubby and I can enjoy our morning walk. Thankful for sight to be able to enjoy the lovely sunrise and to be able to hear the happy chirping of the birds. A thankful person is a happy person.

Happy to see this hibiscus plant in my garden budding again.
Thankful for the sun that makes my plants happy.
The chives in my garden are also budding.

Thankful for the beautiful plants in my garden.
This deep red caladium is doing well in my garden.
When exposed to more sunlight, the colour of the leaves get a tinge of green. especially on the underside of the leaves.
When there is less sunlight, the dark red colour of the leaves will deepen.

Thankful for the fragrant flowers in my garden.
My variegated Gardenia plant is budding.
Can you see the variegated bud?
The bright pure white of the petals of a new Gardenia flower.
It will turn beige on the 2nd or 3rd day.

Thankful for nature's lesson that I have learned since I started my garden.

Thankful for the paintings in the evening sky.

Beautiful display of light and clouds in the sky above the rolling hills.


The heavens are telling the glory of God;
they are a marvelous display of his craftsmanship.
Day and night they keep on telling about God.
(Psalm 19:1-2, The Living Bible-TLB)

  18. Sometimes I think the secret to happiness is thankfulness. I find that when I stop taking my blessings for granted life seems a little easier. Your verse today is the verse all Christian skywatchers should memorize.
