JOY is

JOY is the setting of the sun on a very good day!
JOY is the discovery of something created out of pure exuberance and love!

JOY is visiting one of my all time favorite places and seeing a whale swim by!
JOY is the noticing of those special things throughout the day no matter how
big or how small.

Notice what you notice today!
What touches you and brings you JOY?

Great photographs! I love the lighthouse and the sandcastle. I love anything associated with a beach and the ocean.

Great photos of things that bring you joy. It would have really been a joy to be at the beach watching the construction of that sand castle. :-)

Today Joy is: Being home all day with no pressures and being able to putter and fluff my home a bit - and an unexpected morning visit from our daughter and her special guy - and stopping by here to see your gorgeous photos and remember to notice and be full of joy!

LOVE these photos, Marilyn! These are joyful moments! JOY for me today is a quiet day at home home, getting back in the swing of things since returning from London. We come home to autumn happening here in Norway--touches of red & gold sparking here & there--autumn is here. :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

Joy is my daughter, our new puppies, my new lens, God's wonderful creation, blogging friends... I could go on and on.

I am hosting an swap on my blog and sign up ends tomorrow. I just wanted to invite you personally. Of course, I totally understand if that's not something you're interested in doing. Just wanted to let you know that I'd be thrilled if you would consider joining us. I hope the end of your week is marvelous.

What amazing photos!

What a magnificent photo of the sunset over the ocean! That scene is one of my top joys at the end of the day. I also find a lot of joy seeing the land touch the sky. I know that really sounds weird, but I love seeing an unobstructed view of open countryside.

Jeanie said...

Gigi said...
