Gifts from God

The Beauty in Life

My friend sent me an email that must be shared. Beauty is everywhere if we look. What a wonderful world!

"May God grant you always… 
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering Angel, so nothing can harm you,
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you,
and whenever you pray, 
Heaven to hear you."

  1. I don't know if all these are real.Photoshoping I am told is quite easy if you know what you are doing.Nevertheless,they are all totally beautiful.

    1. John, I thought the same thing. The one that looked fake was the first. So I googled the name and typed in photo...and it's legit! We'll have to check out all the others, but think we're good.
