This quote was in an email I received today and I thought it was worth sharing. The picture that came with the quote was of a statue in Iraq showing one of our soldiers mourning the loss of his comrades. Let's remember, and pray for, our brave soldiers today as they fight for freedom. It doesn't matter if you're a Republican or a Democrat or whether or not you support the war, the soldiers still need your prayers & your support.

Isn't it true that we return to places where friends and family members are there to greet us and to nourish our souls? We need those connections in our lives, those ties that bind us to the past and give us strength to face the future.
Now for a photo tip. I used a Topaz plug-in to get the painterly look in this photo. If you've never tried these plug-ins, they're a lot of fun and fairly inexpensive. Just go to topaz.com and try the plug-ins free for 30 days. If you like them, you can buy them after that. If not, at least you'll have fun playing with them for awhile.

If you look hard enough, you can find beauty almost everywhere. All you have to do is look at the world through the eyes of a child, because children see beauty and wonder in the simplest things. So, try to find that child-like quality in yourself when you look at the world. It will look like a better place if you do.

Nature can be a wonderful teacher if you just take enough time to let the lessons sink in. This may require that you go sit in the woods and let the golden rays of the sun shine through the trees until they rest on your head. The energy of the sun will then soak into you and give you warmth, hope and a new sense of peace.
I wish you a day filled with peace, love and joy. :-)
