Sunday Serenity & More about My Posts

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

In the past some of you have asked me how I find and/or choose the videos I share on my posts here. I love YouTube and find it is such a great source of information and entertainment. I am actually very selective in the things I choose, because firstly, I want it to be family friendly so people of all ages can enjoy, and secondly, it has to be something I like myself.  If it doesn't make me smile, laugh, encourage me, help me to relax, etc., I don't bother sharing it.  YouTube makes recommendations according to videos that one has watched previously, so sometimes their suggestions are good and I use them, but for the most part I choose the videos myself.

As for the images I share, again, I am very selective. If I do not like the image or the quotation, I move on until I find something I like.  I try to have something for everyone, and I try to make my posts enjoyable and choose a wide variety of things that interest me to share with you.  As far as the images go, I even choose how I wish to place them so that there will be a combination of dark and light images, nice colours and helpful, humorous or encouraging things.  Well, that is enough for now.  Thanks for listening.  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

2015 Motivation - Good Days and Bad Days - Nick Vujicic

Meanwhile in Russia - Wild Fox Came to Fisherman on Frozen Lake

Watching the Sea from a Cliff - Soothing Nature

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.
















Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  4. You Tube is a wonderful thing!!! Louis Dean LOVES it!!! He jokes that he plays music with the masters! He plays along WITH the great musicians like Marty Robbins, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and so many others!! He has learned so much from doing this!!!

  13. Today you got me with the fox. What a wonderful video...the poor thing must have been hungry and was able to stifle his natural inclination to fear humans in order to get something to eat. Beautiful!

  37. I really like that Joan Mitchell quote.

    I tend to use Youtube for something to listen to while I work- most of what I listen to are film scores.

  45. I love "the wisdom of Nick" - have you read his book? Seeing his faith and outlook makes me ashamed to complain about minor things.

    Love this post!

  46. Hi Linda! I'll bet people rarely think about how much work it takes to put together a post that satisfies the one posting it. I really like how yours looks, especially with the dark background that sets your images off. I thought the waitress from hell gag was infectious. How could one not laugh along with all the laughing faces? I have to say though, that ocean from the cliff video would not be relaxing to someone who doesn't like heights! LOL! By the way, I finally made smoothies with your recipes using almond milk. They were super! I kept chickening out on the almond milk part ~ silly I know, but I don't always jump in. The milk didn't thicken and go weird with blackberries and blueberries like it does with regular milk and soy. Much fewer calories and more calcium. I'm going to be making many more smoothies in the mornings, now that Terry is retiring in eleven days. Have a great week!

  47. Good to read this posts.

  48. So true that we get what we give. I think the Bible says something along the same lines...cast your bread upon the waters and it will come back to you (paraphrased, not an exact quote). I do appreciate how you choose the videos. If I go to the JustForGags channel I have to screen them myself--so much easier to just relax and enjoy the ones you choose for here!

    Agree with what was said above.

    I think I have not been utilising Youtube very much, but I do love Youtube for its wide selection of videos.

    Love the quotes you shared here. Indeed what we give is what we get.
