Happy New Year!
I am so excited because this is going to be a spectacular year.
My year of gratitude.
I must share this with each of you because my heart is just overwhelmed with gratitude.
I have been praying, seeking the direction of my blog for 2012.
Yesterday Terry and I stopped at one of our beautiful parks.
I had my camera, of course.
Took some shots, nothing was "working".
Until I saw the "ripples".
They spoke to my heart and I kept shooting.
As most of you know who follow me, I am not a professional photographer.
Through the lens of my camera I "feel" my photos.
I just keep going until I "feel" I have captured the essence of my heart.
Most of the pictures I took yesterday were discarded, nothing special moved me......
But the ripples....
This morning I was reading an article on gratitude and I KNEW the Lord
had given me my theme for 2012 on my blog.
A YEAR OF GRATITUDE.
So it begins.........
As I pulled up my blog to begin this post, I noticed I had a brand new comment and follower.
Rhonda, loves the Lord and photography.
Thank you Rhonda and each and every one of my beautiful followers
For each of you who read my blog and for comments that allow me a
glimpse into your lives to become inspired, motivated, and GRATEFUL.
As for those ripples........(big huge smile)
They are ripples of gratitude.
You see, some predict this year to end in doom......
Let's change the world with the "ripple effect" of gratitude!
My prayer this year is that my blog, my photography, posting gratitude
will be a positive foundation with a ripple effect of joy.
As the ripple effect of your own gratitude manifests itself in your life,
please share with me, with us.
Let's spread JOY around the world in 2012.
Oh my gosh.....please forgive me Charlotte!
