My Gourdness!

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say "thank you?"  ~William A. Ward
 For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Goodness, there is pleasure and delight in the beauty of a simple gourd.
And for that, I am thankful.



~Thank you friends~
