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

Grace

Philippians 4:19 – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

The time change has me off schedule. (smile) It’s another Monday, let’s have faith and stand on Philippians 4:19! Be positive. Be adaptable. Be strong. Be fruitful. Be encouraged for blessings.

Maintaining our focus keeps things and stuff, and x, y and z in perspective. (smile) Life is too short to allow angst to ruin our day. Yup, I finally see how distractions all play a part toward losing focus of the bigger picture. (shock face)

It takes two. When that thing or x, y, or z, comes, choose to smile and say nothing or calmly breathe to assemble thoughts and let grace get us through it. Calmly breathe and pray to bridle the tongue, when pressed. (smile)
