A Door Closed is Another Door Open…

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell

Look without Regret

Look Without Regret


“God enters by a private door into every individual.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knock and the Door will Be Opened

Knock and the Door will Be Opened

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

The Climb

Ever feel like life is an uphill battle with no end to the frustrating climb?  This image reminds me of the climb to something exciting.  Perhaps each step is like a piece of the puzzle of life and behind the door is change.  Let’s not think of negative change.  Life is too full of bad news and stress factors to allow an image such as the one below to lead us down the path to negative thoughts.  Let’s think pleasant thoughts and dream of what could be behind the door at the top of the stairs?  Something worth the climb? Something wonderful?  A surprise?  A piece of history?  A special someone?  Want to keep climbing to find out?

“The Back Stairs at Fonthill”                                                                                                                                                   Keep climbing and you’ll reach your destination, your surprise, your reward, your peace.

Simplicity and Contentment

“Let your capital be simplicity and contentment.” – Henry David Thoreau

I truly desire to achieve the mindset of simplicity and contentment every day.
