"side by side with the good"

You don't take a photograph.  You ask, quietly, to borrow it.  ~Author Unknown

Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.  ~Ansel Adams

"Well some things don't ever get settled.  You just make a place for them.  Learn to let them sit there with you , side by side with the good."  Carol Wiley Cassella, Oxygen

I just wanted to have a "good" day yesterday despite the dizziness.  So I let it just be there, side by side, with all the good around me.  Abundance continues to flow into my life.  I have been deeply touched, completely flooded with emails by both friends and new-to-me friends.  Thank you for continuing to be such blessings to me.  


  1. Stunning photographs Vicky!!

    What an important thought: '...side-by-side with the good...'. Thank you.

    Take gentle care of yourself.

  2. The golden colours you saw everywhere are full of light filling my heart with joy.

    Sending love, strength and healing energy your way.

  7. 1st time visitor. I hopped over from Jackie (Teacher's Pet).

    Remarkable images. Powerful words.

    I shared the privilege to pray for you and your family today. God is good.

  8. The blessings are shared, my friend. You with us...and what little I can offer you through blogging and snail mail I count as a blessing for me.
    It's a pleasure to know you. Do you have any idea how many smiles you bring to me and others? I don't think you do.
    You can't count 'em....but trust me, you bring 'em to all who know you.
    I love looking at your autumn. The colors you captured in your photos are rich...warm...inviting.
    Thank you for sharing with us...

  9. Dizzy or not, you have some beautiful photos Vicky. I love reading all the comments, you inspire so many of us. hugs to you, I pray you are having feel good days. Hugs.

  10. Thanks for leading me into that bounteous beauty. I LOVE LOVE LOVE fall photos and for some reason, haven't taken as many this year. I keep thinking I need to do that, and before I know it it will be too late. I might live vicariously through you this fall. :) My head has been too high up in the clouds. But rest assured, I won't go too far. Too many beautiful things right here on the earth to see. Thanks again for bringing some to me today. XXXXXOOOOOO Roxane

  11. Such awesome golden color and light in these photos.. in your words. :-)

  12. Ah, the glory of fall! It's so amazing to me, it's like God is showing off, just a little bit. The warm flow of the sun, the foliage, the simple beauty that fall adds to the sweet Dog. All so beautifully captured here in these images.

    So glad you are taking time for beauty. For you, for us.

    Be well, friend.

  13. So beautiful. I love the quotes, too.
