There is something really special and magical when small animals get together with little children. The result is usually simply adorable! Today’s picture is a perfect example of that sweet time of most of our lives, when we had the enjoyable time to love our pets and feel good about the world.

I am sure that you probably remember such a time…if so, leave a comment and share your experience with us!!

Pictures That Speak Volumes #77

This picture really does speak 1,000 words and it should touch the heart and spirit of each one of us. This is a picture, taken by Mike Wells, of a little Ugandan boy whose hand is being held by a missionary.

This should serve as a great reminder to all of us, as to how “rich and blessed” a lot of us really are. There are many things that we take for granted…nice homes, cars, families, jobs, good health, food, etc. We all should take a moment out of time, everyday, to give thanks for all that we have!

Pictures That Speak Volumes #76: The Wonder of It All

Simply put…I LOVE this picture!!! It might be one of my favorite photos that I have ever put up on my blog under the titles of “Pictures That Speak Volumes.”

Just look at the face of this precious child as he looks upon the President of the United States. Complete awe and wonder. Total shock and adoration at the same time.

Then check out the faces of the people in the background: I don’t know if they are his parents or not but chances are…they are. Observe the joy and happiness in the smiles and faces.

Like I said…a beautiful, joyous and heartwarming picture…priceless!!

Everyone knows how loyal and loving dogs (and other pets) can be. Today’s picture is a tremendous illustration of this king of unconditional love.

It has been said that the relationship between some people and their pets are special and can sometimes touch and help heal the soul. Looking at the face of the child in this photo (and even the dog), is a testament to this fact.

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than it loves itself”.

Today’s picture is a heartwarming reminder of the time when we were are kids…just dreaming ¬†of what we might someday want to become.

It is my hope that you have found the thing or things that you wanted to do as a child and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Like the famous American author, Mark Twain, once said, “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”.

If you haven’t lived your dream…what are you waiting for?

Slaying the Dragon – Pictures That Speak Volumes #63

Puppet Show Paris 1963 Dragon Slain

Will you look at the faces of these little darlings?? It is such a fascinating thing to observe the faces of people…especially kids when they are watching something happen in front of them.

These little critters were watching a puppet show in Paris, France, in 1963. It was at the time in which the dragon in the play was being vanquished that this photograph was taken.

Just look at those faces…a picture truly is worth a thousand words!

I have always found it interesting when people complain about “how bad they have it”…whether it be at work, a job, at home, etc. What we quite often forget is how awful and depressing conditions are for other people that live around the world.

Take for example today’s picture of a mine worker who is required to work under atrocious and dangerous conditions every day…quite often just making a few cents or dollars a day. Notice the fingers of the worker in the picture above and observe how black they are.

So, take some time today to be thankful for all of the blessings that you have been given and say a quick prayer (or you may want to do something) for people living around the world in tough decisions everyday!
