Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)


Don’t let people drive you crazy when you know it’s in walking distance. ~Author Unknown~

A humor quote to start the day. (smile) I’m a bit sluggish at the moment. My energy level was depleted yesterday on things and stuff. (smile) I forgot to roll with it!

Choices. Unless, we live on a secluded island alone, there will always be something or someone trying our patience. (shock face)

Of all the spiritual fruit, I believe patience is tested more, followed by temperance. (gritted teeth) Traffic, long lines in the store, trying to button that last button, when in a rush, or fill in the blank_____________.

Recently, I’ve found, if I do the opposite of what I feel, it’s a win for that moment. Just remember to breathe calmly before speaking or just smile. Either one changes the focus. (smile)

Sometimes, aha moments come by making a different choice. Sometimes, things are simpler than we realize. At times, we over think things. (smile) It is what, it is. (smile)

Here’s the challenge, when you’re tired or hungry, all bets could be off. (shock face) It’s like x, y and z come to push and push. You think, ok, feeling a little pressed then something comes, then another and another…

Here is where choices come into play. Free will. Spirit over Flesh. It’s a prettier situation to make the spiritual choice. (smile) Thank God for His mercy and grace when we don’t!

Be blessed, stay calm because it is, what it is. (smile) As always, your thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Everyday gets better and every step is just one step closer to God. Things and stuff will always happen it’s when you know you have done your best that matters to him. Keep the faith Anne, it may take some people awhile to understand the big picture and figure it out. DC
