~ Broken down barn on country road~

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, Confusion into clarity...It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense out of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."

Nita I was just catching up with your posts. You and your family have continued to be in my prayers including your father. I've prayed for comfort and peace as well as it be his will all goes smoothly and positively. Speaking of positively, I positively love your photos of roses and barns! Beauty and mystery, what a combination. Gratitude truly changes on perspective on situations. The ironic thing is is that nothing has changed in our situation but our perspective. At the point we become grateful we see through the eyes of our high power what he has intended for us. Truly everthing we need is all within us. It's only when we become open we access all that God has already given us.

Love and hugs!

Vickie: I am so happy you love the photos. And it is true about the perspective. Thank you very much for the prayers for my Dad. It is much appreciated.
Hope you are well my friend.
xoxo Nita

Great photo!! I would love to spend a few days right there in that peacefulness.......nap, draw, paint, nap, write, think, nap, write, have a picnic with fruit, cheese, crusty bread and white wine. Then nap again.

Come back recharged. That is what I think of when I look at this pretty photo.

xo Rella

Rella, that barn is just about 3 miles from my house. I love to go for drives and take photos in the country..It is a peaceful place there for sure.
Sending you love, Nita

Annette said...

those word are so true, I like how it brings the postive to a negative. we need to reminded of this, I know I am the first to say all things happen for a reason and not always live by what I say...something I myself need to work on. Thanks for the wonderful postive words....

~Red Tin Heart~ said...

Annette: Thank you.. I myself struggle with finding the positive at times. Especially right now.
Sending you lots of love today, Nita

I met Melodie Beatie once, she's a lovely woman.

The barn photo is wonderful. It's such a North American icon. We have them too, exactly the same!
