Editing Thoughts




We each have the unique opportunity to include or exclude thoughts.
Filter them wisely for they determine the future of your life.

Like editing photos, we need to delete the ones which aren't a true representation, keeping and refining only the best and most helpful.



Photographic note: Tiny moss taken late this afternoon.

At least we can choose to focus on the better memories Wong.

Nie zawsze mi się udaje wyrzucić złe wspomnienie, chociaż się bardzo staram. Cudowne. zdjęcie. Pozdrawiam.
I do not always manage to throw away the bad memory, although very trying. Wonderful. picture. Yours.

This looks like Tortula muralis, a moss you can find here too. In the morning with a bit of dew they are even more beautiful. The Raynox works perfectly!
And your words are very true.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Thank you Anita, I will keep this in mind, especially as our weather warms up in the coming weeks. Thank you for identifying the moss too.

What a fantastic photo Karen.

Your words are oh so true and very inspiring. I, at this time, need to keep positive, giving the negatives over to God to deal with.

Have a lovely week ~ FlowerLady

Filtering (or reframing) thoughts is a huge step towards a more contented life I think
Great advice
And beautiful macro

geanina said...

beautiful, Karen! :)

Michelle said...

That is great advice. Sometimes hard to do, but so necessary.

Michael Gatton said...

Nice look at the beauty of something we easily pass by (or trample) without noticing

Sylvia K said...

True and wise words, Karen, as always! And yes, sometimes hard, but necessary indeed! Lovely capture for the day as well. Hope you and your family have a great week!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Nice food for thought. Your photo is fantastic, as well!

Barb Brookbank said...

Stunning image, and beautiful advice!

TheChieftess said...

Love the fab macro!!! And the quote is a perfect reminder!!!

Joy said...

Very true:)

Jana said...

so very true! happy new week from tulipand...the moss is really funny:-) great shot!

Pamela said...

Filtering thoughts cause me to accept the good and toss the bad, never allowing the enemy to fill my heart with his evil. I want to be sensitive to hear the Holy Spirit's checks when unwholesome thoughts are planted. An amazing picture.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

You have expressed the truth beautifully Pamela. Our pastor has been preaching a series on renewing the mind, lots of interesting information. It's been a great series.

Hello Karen,

Joke (Jokes Camera) said...

Fantastic picture, Karen. Your words are so true. A few lines of a poem are my daily motto. I think you already know them.
"Count your garden by the flowers
Never by the leaves that fall
Count your days by golden hours...
Don't remember clouds at all"

Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes I still work with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48 and the Raynox DCR-250. I have tried a Nikon D5200, but couldn't find the advantages compared with the Lumix. The pictures didn't improve. I don't know if I will switch. Greetings, Joke

Beautiful photo and thought too

amanda | wildly simple said...

Oh, what an inspiring reminder, Karen!
And fantastic macro!

Mirabilys said...

Your words are true, that's my way of life, and even always try to see things with the positive way.
Love your picture Karen, I wonder if I could do an embroidery with this lovely piece of nature.
Have a nice day!
