Wouldn’t this old world be better

If the folks we meet would say – 

“I know something good about you !”

And treat us just in that way ?

Wouldn’t it be fine and dandy

If each handclasp, fond and true,

Carried with it this assurance  – 

“I know somethnig good about you !”

Wouldn’t life be lots more happy

If the good that’s in us all

Were the only things about us

That folks bothered to recall ?

Wouldn’t life be more happy

If we praised the good we see ?

For there’s such a lot of goodness

In the worst of you and me !

Wouldn’t it be nice to practice

That fine way of thinking, too ?

You know something good about me,

I know something good about you !

Motivation For Monday

Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.
~ Grandma Moses ~

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
~ Romans 8:28 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. Motivation for Monday, now brings a smile to my face. Life is what we make it.

I smile, for the opportunity, to stay positive, while grateful that I’m better than two Monday’s ago.

It’s about finding a fresh perspective to keep a positive attitude.

We can also choose. The world will not end should we stumble. Thank God for his mercy and his grace.

One day, it may become Fun Day Monday.

References to Romans 8:28

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
~ Ephesians 1:1 ~

According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
~ Ephesians 3:11

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
~ 2 Timothy 1:9 ~

Keep the faith and enjoy your day!

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

Faith In Action – Blessed are Peacemakers

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
~ Matthew 5:9 ~


And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
~ James 3:18 ~

Reference scriptures to Matthew 5:9 (Hebrews 12:14)

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
~ Hebrews 12:14 ~

Reference scriptures to James 3:18

The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.
~ Proverbs 11:18 ~

And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
~ Isaiah 32:17 ~

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
~ Matthew 5:9 ~

Being filled with the fruit of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
~ Philippians 1:11 ~

It’s amazing to see the similarity across scriptures. Praise The Lord.

Make it a great day!

Celebrate Moments of Spontaneous Joy


Hello everyone, hope all is well. Welcome Lexa and co-host, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge, to another week to celebrate the small things.

Today, I celebrate moments of spontaneous joy. Praise The Lord.

I’m off schedule today regarding posting.

A good and unexpected massage after a manicure, dinner and good conversation with a friend, having a jam session in my car listening to my favorite music, were my moments of spontaneous joy. I had the best time. (wink)

Have a great weekend and keep the faith.

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Contentment While Waiting

This post was originally published on 2 January 2015 and updated on 6 December 2018.

Once we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life.
~ Harry Hepner ~

But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
~ Philippians 4:10-12 ~

Hello everyone, hope all is well. I apologize, am experiencing WordPress challenges.

Contentment is a good habit to acquire. To be content while waiting is endurance. It’s even more powerful, to do, by faith.

A season, of anything, can be challenging. Waiting can be brutal. Here’s the beautiful thing, seasons are temporary and waiting builds patience.

That thing, that stuff or that Y is temporary. Until it serves its purpose, it will be around. Keep in mind, it will be different for everyone. Similar, yet different.

Have faith. Be content. Have patience. Have self-discipline. Part of the process.

The ability to find contentment comes when the focus is on God and the blessings that He provides.

The ability to find contentment comes when we realize it is, what it is. Adapt and adjust by casting your cares, to the Lord, can work wonders.

It’s liberating to free the mind from angst that amounts to nothing. Put “it” at the foot, of the cross and be content until we can walk through it. Keep the faith.

We may still fail a test moment; praise God for His mercy and His grace because at the end, of the day, we’re still standing!

This WordPress challenge is validation to be content while I figure out the issue. How about that.

Abundant blessings, my friends, as we acquire the habit of contentment, by faith, while waiting for our break through. Praise The Lord!

As always, I welcome your thoughts.
