Messages to inspire

Lens-Artists Challenge #234: Messages

There are messages everywhere.
Some you see,
some you don’t.
Some are big,
some are small.
Some to make you think,
some to make you smile.
Some are subtle,
some are on a wall.
There are messages everywhere.

Look

Let’s be positive

Something to ponder

The kids are in the back seat

More to think upon

Something we should all aspire to

A strong message

Messages can be found everywhere, if you look.

Laugh to be healthy and happy

Marsha’s WQ#3

One of my favourite Elvis songs – the laughing version. Try not to get caught up in Elvis’s contagious laughing

“The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.” – Voltaire

“Laughter serves as a blocking agent. Like a bullet-proof vest, it may help protect you against the ravages of negative emotions that can assault you in disease.” – Norman Cousins

“Trouble knocked at the door, but, hearing laughter, hurried away.” – Benjamin Franklin

Earth laughs in flowers. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

God has a smile on His face. — Psalm 42:5

On Day at the Pearly Gates

St. Peter stood at the Pearly Gates, waiting for the incoming.
He saw Jesus walking by and caught his attention.
“Jesus, could you mind the gate while I go do an errand?” 
“Sure,” replied Jesus. “What do I have to do?”  
“Just find out about the people who arrive.  Ask about their background,their family, and their lives.  Then decide if they deserve entry into Heaven.” 
“Sounds easy enough.  Okay.”  

So Jesus waited at the gates while St. Peter went off on his errand.


The first person to approach the gates was a wrinkled old man.  Jesus summoned him to the examination table and sat across from him. 
Jesus peered at the old man and asked, “What was it you did for a living?” 
The old man replied, “I was a carpenter.”  
Jesus remembered his own earthly existence and leaned forward.
“Did you have any family?” he asked. 
“Yes, I had a son, but I lost him.”  
Jesus leaned forward some more. “You lost your Son?  Can you tell me about him?” 
“Well, he had holes in his hands and feet.”  
Jesus leaned forward even more, and whispered, ” … Father?” 
The old man leaned forward and whispered, ” … Pinocchio?” 

Little bikes

Wednesday Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Cycling

I went looking through my folders thinking I had some cycling photos or just a few bicycles to join in this challenge but failed miserably. I have resorted to some oldies that you may have seen before.

Lovely little wire sculptures.

And then I remembered a sign on a bike shop in Beaune France.
