One Year!

Well, I see Blogger is back in business, but I seem to have lost the Bon Jovi post.  I may re-post at least one of the photos because it was pretty neat.  

Today is officially one year at The Places I Go! It is amazing how much I have learned over the year and all the wonderful people I've met through this process. I am truly blessed and I'm looking forward to more over this next year.

This week's Scripture and a Snapshot focuses on thanks.





















I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders.

Psalm 9:1

I am thankful this week for the rain and sunshine that brings the trees and flowers back to life.  

I am thankful for the good work of volunteers, when there is too much rain (flooding) or sunshine (drought), both of which we are seeing in the US right now.  

I am thankful for the dedication of those I work with, both in their everyday choices and for using their "free time" to completely re-plant a memorial garden.

I am thankful for long time friends, some who I get to see in person soon and some that are still far away.

 I am thankful for the photography class I will be taking this summer - and hopeful for learning new things.

I am thankful for the season of open windows, shrimp on the barbie and children's laughter in the air!

M.E.

Apparently if we sit tight the missing post might reappear after the weekend. Or so Blogger says. I don't think they can recover the comments, though, but we shall see.

Lovely post. And a timely reminder that we always have something to be thankful for.

When we stop and really look around, we all have so much to be thankful for! This verse really speaks to me...'I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart' - I notice that it doesn't say we should be thankful when things are going our way, but rather we should we should be thankful in all things!

Congratulations on your first year of blogging. I just had mine in February. It's amazing to think I've been doing this that long!
My real surprise of course was seeing that name of the person who commented just before me. We both spell our names the same way--Janis. I shook my head at first, thinking I was losing it!

Anyway, I love your photo of spring budding and all the things for which to be thankful. You are a good photographer. Hope I improve over summer.

About the lost blogposts. Mine did reappear but without the comment.

Blessings to you,
Janis
