Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


So here we were last week, walking around in the 'old town' after lunch and we came upon a bit of construction. The workers were tearing up tiles in front of an older building while the building itself was being renovated for a new establishment going in soon. I was actually trying to keep out of harm's way while still looking down where I was putting my feet so not to trip on something. As I walked by, I spotted the heart in the broken tile. I didn't do anything but continue walking......then, about three blocks later, I decided to return my steps and get a photo of it...LOL I figured this was as good as any spot to use the photo, right? It's outdoors, and it's Wednesday. So my dear blog visitors...I give you my Outdoor Wednesday photo. And since the post is quite wordful...it's also my Wordful Wednesday. Secretly, I was wondering if the workers had noticed the heart too....probably not. At least not until I came back and pointed my cellphone down to the broken heart, errrrr, ummmm, the tile with a heart shape cut out!!!

Love is like a puzzle. When you’re in love, all the pieces fit but when your heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together...author unknown





<><><> Hurricane News: "While sea-surface temperatures in the Atlantic have increased some since June, and surface air pressures have fallen - normally things that would increase hurricane formation - the impact of El Nino will be enough to overwhelm those Atlantic factors and suppress storm formation, they said. The chances of an East Coast landfall, they said, are 46 percent, compared with a half-century average of 52 percent. The chances that a major hurricane will come ashore on the East Coast is 27 percent, compared with 31 percent over the last half-century. For the record, the National Hurricane Center is currently watching a stormy area far out in the tropical Atlantic, but there are no signs of quick storm development."

Last night, the local news and national news broadcasts told us that the predicted number of hurricanes has dropped.

  8. What a neat find. I'm glad you were watching your feet! You do wonder if the "guys" had noticed it. Probably not.

  9. I love this!!! I actually have a collection of hearts that I've discover along my journey in life... some are mundane but they all hold a special place in my own heart for the reassurance they have given me.

    They all had a way of showing up at just the right time. God is good!

    Hope you have a wonderful WW!

  11. Cool picture.

    In 2005, I was meeting my g/f in Texas. We were suppose to fly to New Orleans that day. But because of Katrina, we opted to stay. :( Sadly, only to get stuck in the eviction line up of Rita. 9 hour drive to get 2 hours away. I told her never again will I go there between july and December. LOL. Thats too scary for me.

  12. Good Morning My Sweet Angel Annie:
    I love this post this morning. The heart in the middle of all of that construction is God reminding us that no matter what is torn down and threw away his heart is always there for us. Undying love. I truly love this. What a beautiful sign to find in the midst of everything else going on there. You my friend were visited by a special angel. Thank you for sharing this wonderful gift. I love it. Thank you also for the Hurricane update. I can always rely on you for the latest news. Thanks my sweet. Have a wonderful day, and please stop by and say hi. I love it when you do. Love always, Sherry

  13. I can't tell you how many times I've walked past a picture and then turned around and gone back to it. They are nearly always worth while. This one certainly was. I didn't necessarily read it as heart - until I read your script - but saw it as a rather fine abstract, something that made me think of a Ben Nicholson relief.

  20. That is so cool, and a very unique Outdoor Wednesday! I also love the "love" quote. It's so true, isn't it?

  21. Hi Anni - nice spotting! It reminds me that we often miss things because we aren't paying attention to our surroundings. Glad you were!

  22. Anni,

    I often catch sight of shapes in things, but have never found a heart in tile. Nice shot.

    Glad that the hurricane news is positive. I worry about you down there on the coast during this season. We had torrential rain and high winds last night and were under a tornado watch for a few hours. Thank goodness nothing came of it. I've seen these things at work and the impact is devastating.

    Hope you have a great day.
    Blessings,
    Mary

  23. What an amazing catch, Anni. It's a terrific picture.

  24. The workers probably all rushed over to it after you left, to see what you had taken a picture of! lol Finding a heart in the most unlikely places is a fun thing to do:-)

    Great news about the predicted number of hurricanes having dropped!! Would you believe it was only 57F when I got up this morning...truly not the typical August temperature! Sheesh! xoxo

  25. That heart is too cool.

  27. Oh, I'm so glad you went back and took that picture! One of the reasons it is so much fun to take part in these blogging events is that we start looking at and appreciating things in a whole new way! And then we get to share them! This is a lovely picture!

    Great hurricane news too!

  28. The heart is a cool picture!
    They did mention a disturbance on the news last night they are watching, but hopefully it is not of much concern. I don't think I can do it again this year..nope

    ReplyDelete
  29. the heart is WOW! wonder if that was purely accidental. waiting for the right eye to catch it....

    and although i know you need the rain, i sure hope the hurricanes will avoid you!

  37. Hi!,
    Thanks for stopping by today. When I read your message I was certainly intrigued to come and read your post.
    I would have never guessed that you had a photo with a broken tile that looked like a heart!!

    But if I had saw it as well, I would have wondered if there was some hidden meaning for having noticed it.

    Once when I was feeling down and unloved I saw a beautiful cloud in the sky that took the shape of a heart as I was watching it. I decided that it was a sign that there "was love" from someone up above....
    I guess love is all around...you just gotta keep your eyes and heart open to it!

    Have a wonderful day!
    Sherri:)

  45. Someone had their heart broken and didn't want it any more...

    I hope you don't get any hurricanes...we're a couple of months away yet from our cyclone season and already they are predicting at least two. Lovely...not!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh how blessed you were to find that heart, that is awesome. I think I would've took a picture of it to, sounds like you were meant to see it. I think it is great even though it's broken, maybe by accident, or maybe on purpose, but it is still a beautiful art peice that can always be mended back into one whole heart again.

    Hope you have a blessed day,
    Cheers,
    Heidi
