Rose Colored Glasses! :)

 As the sun started to rise this morning, I noticed a rose-like glow! :)
 As I watched it grew lighter and brighter! :)
 It seemed to me as if our Heavenly Father was smiling and saying, ...
"This earth life is meant to be enjoyed! Go On, put on your rose colored glasses!" :)

The Golden Glow! :)

 I'm sure you've all seen it, ...
 That magical glow of the setting sun as it lights up the upper portion of the horizon! :)
 I love the contrast of the shaded dark areas with the upper areas glowing with light! :)
 It can take your breath! :)
 You just want to keep looking! :)
 (smile) ...

 You know the feeling! :) ...

 I never tire of it! :)
I call it "the golden glow"! :)

Seek After These Things! :)

 Abraham Lincoln said "We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses." :)
 It all has to do with our perspective, outlook, and ...
 what we choose to place our focus on! ... Do our lips murmur or rejoice! :)
 There is much joy in life when we choose to focus on the good in our surroundings and in others! :)
 "If there is anything virtuous, lovely, ...
 of good report, or praiseworthy, ...
we seek after these things." - Joseph Smith :)
Have a great day, everyone! :)

A Skeleton Has To Have Style! :)

 I have a thing about cowboys, so when I saw a cowboy skeleton, I had to buy him! :)
At first he hung around in the house, with the other Halloween decorations, but eventually found his way out to the wreath on the front door! :)
Now he has a crow keeping him company! You know that saying "One bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"? :)
His hat doesn't lay quite right, though, so I've decided to keep my eyes open for a better cowboy hat and some cowboy boots! :)
If you see any that may fit him, please let me know! :)
After all, at this festive time of year, a skeleton has to have style! :)

These First Days Of Fall! :)

 As much as I always wish Summer could stay a little longer, when Fall arrives I embrace her with a full heart! :)
 Her colors start as a whisper, and increase with each additional warm day and chilly night! :)
 Each year I await the arrival of the Juncos! When they appear I know that Fall is truly here! :) This year they showed up sooner than usual! After our long, dry Summer, I hope that is an indication of upcoming snow this Winter! :)
 Everywhere there are touches of color! :)

 Some soft ...
 and some bright! :)

 Nature's lighting takes on a new, exciting feel! :)
 It can be spell binding! :)

 Have I mentioned the Color!? :)

 The nights are now chilly, and the days are very warm, and pleasant! :)
 The felines congregate in the yard, enjoying the comfort of Fall! :)

 Even plant life responds to the comfortable temperatures and there's a feeling of extra oxygen in the air! :)

 Many leaves will continue to brighten in color with the weeks to come! :)
 The early mornings quietly appear in an intriguing blanket of fog! :)
As the sun comes up the felines assemble on the deck, where I will see them and be reminded to bring them food and fresh water! :)
I hope you are all enjoying the new season, as I am! :)
There's something restful and inspiring about these first days of Fall! :)
