A Quote, an Invitation, and a Question

Well, well! Here we are at the end of another month. I hope you've had a most beautiful October.
As the title says, I have a quote, an invitation and a question.

 I found the quote whilst reading the writings of Laura Ingalls Willder. I thought it was lovely, so I wanted to share it.

"As we go about our daily tasks, the world will seem lighter if we enjoy the beautiful things that are just are outside our doors and windows. 
 It pays to go to the top of the hill now and then to see the view. . .forgetting that we are in a hurry or that there is such a thing as a clock in the world.  You are 'so busy'! Oh, yes, I know it! We are all busy, 
but what are we living for anyway, and why is the world so beautiful if not for us? 
. . . The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes, and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the beauty of life lies."
~Laura Ingalls Wilder.

 And the invitation is this: KBR Ministries is hosting their "Give Thanks X7" challenge in November, and all are invited!

To participate, you simply have to record at least 7 things each day in the month of November that you are grateful for. More information >>HERE<<

Last but not least, my question is. . .would you be interested if I hosted a photo challenge?

That's all for now!
Keep smiling,
S. F.

Two Years Have Rolled By

Who'd of thought? Two years (and a day) have passed since I started "On Solid Ground" and officially became S. F.! October 1st 2013 is a day to always be remembered. ☺
It most certainly has been two lovely, brilliant, joyful, and adventurous years. :) Thank you so much, everyone, for making this blogging experience of mine a fun one! It wouldn't be the same without YOU. :)
I am so grateful to the Lord for giving me these amazing opportunities. ♥
“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; … for ye serve the Lord Christ.”
~ Colosians 3:23–24
