We Are All Different People

If we all recognize each other as equally powerful, and saw that all God's creatures are capable of great things, wouldn't the world be a better place?

Part of the reason why my girls like traveling is to meet all the wonderfully different people in the places that they go.





Costa Rica


New Orleans







If our love was stronger than our desire for power, the world would be sweeter indeed. Hmmm...that is something for me to think about today.

Love you.

Hi Sheri,

What a lovely post and I am just listening to the song on the radio, Make this world a better place, by Diana Ross.
I enjoyed the Virtual tour of the world, thank you and now I should go and get something done.
Wishing your daughters, wonderful travels.

Happy week

Great post and I agree. One of my granddaughters just got back from England another one is in Greece right now. I think it's wonderful, happy travels to your daughters also...Hugs, Lu

Shine said...

Very true my friend....you're very fortunate to be able to travel and meet wonderful people:)...Have a lovely evening~~Shine

Harvest said...

That's so neat that your daughters went to all those places! Have you joined them on any of their adventures? I've been starting to get the travel bug myself lately. I think that means it's time for a trip. Any suggestions?

So very true! If we could just all remember that Jesus said, "Love EVERYONE". I too love the diversity of people from other places. One of my favorite things about traveling. We all need to embrace each others differences. What a boring world this would be if we were all alike. Love all of the pics! Just wanted to let you know that I received an award today and I am regifting it to you. Check out my blog when you get a chance.

Sheri, this is wonderful, the message and the pictures. Were those taken by your daughters? What a blessing for them to be able to travel to all these places. My heart skipped a beat when I scrolled down to Italy. Always dream of going one day.

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful thought with us today. I'll meditate on it too.
Much love!

Red Rose Alley said...

To answer your question, the pictures were taken by me with the exception of the Jimi Hendrix quote and the last painting. You should start planning that dream trip to Italy. I promise you won't regret it :-)
Love, Jess

Happy Belated Anniversary.
So HAPPY you dropped by. I ADORE your blog. It's also interesting that a few posts back you have Audrey, whom I ADORE and of course the colour PINK. Louis Armstrong is playing on my playlist right now " LA VIE EN ROSE". So appropriate.
I will RSS you for sure. I adore your pics and LOVE the idea that you and your girls are blogging together.

THIS IS IT. THis is the answer because love is the greatest and most enduring force ever and forever.

Dearest one, thank you for your clear and kind words. Confidence is most definitely a gift that builds only from EACH OTHER and blogland has been good to me. Let us create that love, every day, everywhere. THOSE PHOTOS OF GERMANY and all the other parts of the world are so magnificent. God has given us a great home here on this magnificent planet.

Be well, Anita

Hi Sheri,
Oh I just love this post and your words so true. Your pics are wonderful and the last statment is one of truth in our world.
We can travel the world over to find that we all have more in common then not. People still have some of the same hearts desires no matter what country.

Hope you enjoyed a wonderful anniversary.
Have a great weekend dear friend and sending love to you too.
Blessings, Celestina Marie

Ricki Treleaven said...

Powerful post. I love it! I think there needs to be more international schools with students from all over the world attending. We do not tend to fear or hate what (and who) we know....

Or possibly if women ruled the world!
