Signs of the Times – #ThursdayDoors

I shared this door before, but I wanted to focus on the sign thanking the “Essentials”

I ran a few errands this week, and I was on the lookout for doors. That’s what members of Norm Frampton’s worldwide network of door lovers do, we look for doors. Anyway, as I was going through the doors I collected, I decided to focus on just a few. They contain a message of gratitude that I didn’t want to get buried in with the architecture. The messages are explained in the captions and I think they say everything I hope to say in this post.

If you want to contribute your doors, or if you just want to see a collection of doors from all around the world, head on up to Norm’s place. Norm usually has a nice selection of doors to share with us as well.

Thanks for stopping here, and please take care.


  1. Great doors today Dan, but for me the messages are the winners. I love the way people are expressing their thanks and appreciation with all sorts of signs on their doors and windows. Such a small thing to do, but it makes a huge impact on all who read them. Hopefully our neighbors in the trenches see them.

  2. Positive messages, signs of hope, and reminders of how great we can be when we let our better side shine through: we need more of all of this right now.
    Thanks for the uplifting post Dan :-)

  3. Dan, this is a lovely hope-filled post. I’m making a distinction between hopeful and hope-filled. One might be hopeful when all seems lost, but to me that carries a sad element. Hope-filled (to me) is brimming with positive thinking. Welcome to the language of Teagan-ese. LOL. It’s part of Teaganism — a non-evangelical congregation of one. :D Hugs on the wing!

    • I could see Teaganism filling the airwaves on Sunday night. Preach sister!

      I appreciate the distinction, and I think these are good messages, especially the hand painted sheet and the brightly colored hearts.

  4. That barn is beautiful and the magnet school looks huge! Nice to see those encouraging messages. Kinda makes you smile and I think we all need that. My neighbor asked me to take a look at her fence and tell her if I found it offensive. Some families with young children had been placing teddy bears in their front windows. Neighbor is across the street from me on a big piece of property next to a park. Her lot is fenced and her son had laced a teddy bear to the fence. Her question to me: “Does this look too much like Jesus on the cross?” Horrors! I had not thought of it that way at all. I busted up. She laughed. Teddy stays. Happy Door Day, Dan.

  5. The house and barn are both beautiful and of course the messages are very appreciated. Thanks for focusing on a something positive, Dan. I rarely listen to or read much news right now because it’s either depressing or a rehash of something already discussed ad nauseum. I read once or twice a day and that’s it. Helps keep me sane and healthy. :-)

    • I love the barn. That guy has had a variety of signs up over time. It’s just a nice thing to do.

      I think we have to limit the amount of news we watch or read. I turned on my TV on Tuesday at 4:59. The announcer said “thanks for watching “The News At Four – stay tuned for the Five O’Clock News.” I couldn’t change the channel fast enough.

  6. It’s a shame we can’t readily get closer in this pandemic moment, but it’s very nice to see these hopeful signs (quite literally). Gratitude is the right attitude. Thanks for sharing, Dan.
