Ring The Bells of Heaven


A bell is not a bell  until your ring it. A song is not a song until you sing it! Love in your heart wasn't put there to stay, love isn't love until you give it away. Oscar Hammerstine II

These bells hang on top of Bayshore Gardens Community Church. My TOPS club meets here each Thursday

I love love love these! And each one makes me appreciate the others more! I have never seen stacked bells in a church like this. Do they actually ring them, or are they just for show? Your first shot is gorgeous with the bright green tree and brilliant blue sky framing the bells. The second one is subtle and mysterious, and the bells stand out more. And the third is a modernistic painting of the scene! Each one so different and so beautiful.

I'm all about Bells! As in Amber, Mike, Trystan, Kailey, Harrison, and Logan! And to round it up - the other set of grandparents - Lynn and Jim! Bells are very special to me and I love yours!

Hello, I love the bells and the original photo. But, they edits are fun. I wish I could hear these bells ring. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

I love listening to those joy-FULL voices!

Those bells! 'Great juxtaposition with the tree fronds! For some reason your first photo reminded me of my Uncle-the-pastor's church in Sarasota (Concordia Lutheran) ... but when I went on-line there's not such a similarity after all.

I am surrounded by many Churches. So I hear the bells charming also. I enjoy them.

In the week I hear charms that hang from someone's tree . I love the sound of them.

Have a nice Sunday.

Love the bells . Wish I could hear them. At my place a cathedral sounds it's bells at given hourly times.
I had to google tops as I had no clue how it fit into the post. Now I get the meaning and I am happy you are finding it helpful in your effort to become happy with your body size.

I know you had a lot of fun editing this picture and that's great, but I really am partial to the original.I love that shot.

Sandra, I love Oscar Hammerstine's beautiful words. The church bells are arranged in an original way, and the church although modern, is elegant Forgive me for being nosey, but I can't help wondering what you do at your TOPS CLUB!

I never wear a watch, as church bells ring out their chimes on the hour, on the mountain top. Great effects with your edits Sandra.

That's incredible, well done Sandra.:)
