Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

IWSG Keep The Faith

Hello friends. (smile) Sometimes, too much negativity can drain you. (shock face)

Negativity breeds negativity.

Sure, there are times, when we don’t focus and hear something negative and bam, we walk away speaking or thinking negative thoughts. Ugh. Cast that stuff, it’s draining.

I am still building my confidence and courage with blogging. (smile) I just keep moving forward and I encourage you to do the same. (smile)

I am learning to block out all the coulda, woulda and shoulda. It gains us nothing to second guess ourself.

Write or blog, the things that you know and create and the rest is irrelevant. Someone will like it. Keep the faith. (smile)

Please don’t feed the negativity! Remember, not my circus, not my monkeys! Humor, my friends, never lose our sense of humor. (wink)

Blessings as we believe in ourself and keep the faith! (smile)

The second-guessings sometimes give me problems. Thanks for the reminder to keep the faith.

PS Many of the “words” that you find on Petals, that I hear are from Jesus. I am not able to prove this, I just know it. I have heard His Voice since a child. And much more. (smile) xx Amy

I really want to support you, Ann, so I followed you. I am not able to promise I will be here regularily, but I will just do the best I can do. My life is very full, and my blogging life just as so. Many come to Petals, and many I do try to interact with. It is challenging, yet this is what my Heart leads me to do. Bless you for blessing me today!!!! Love, Amy

Glory to God, Amy. You are most welcome. Thank you, I understand, we balance as we can (smile) and roll with it for the rest! Many blessings, Amy and sleep well tonight!!

What a breath of fresh air you are, Ann. Thank you for coming into my Life. I hang onto God with all I’ve got, believe me. In order to do what I do at Petals, I must line my Life up with all I have been taught, and all that I share. I have been given a mantle, and I take it very seriously. With Love, Amy


  Ann “afriend4ever54” Friend wrote @

Thank for your kind thoughts, I give God all the glory. (smile)


  AmyRose wrote @

As do I. I am out of the box as well, so my “lingo” is universal, in order that I touch ALL peoples. I think you will get the hang of it. If my sis can, who is literally in the box as they come, you can too. (smile) Love, Amy


  Ann “afriend4ever54” Friend wrote @

No worries Amy, I adapt well (smile)


  AmyRose wrote @

I had a feeling you did. YAY!!!!! I have been taught for more then 30 years, in order to touch ALL, I must adapt MY language in order for the many to understand. Not easy when I am used to saying certain things in my own private life, a certain way. I check my Heart, and what I write, is Truth. xx Amy


  Ann “afriend4ever54” Friend wrote @

Amen! As do I (smile)

Thanks Debbie!! Blessings! (smile)

It’s tough to walk the Walk of Love. Meaning, not getting pulled into negativity. The thoughts are the toughest. You may ACT in one way, but what are you really thinking? Yep, sure have worked on this one!!! Thank you! Love, Amy


  Ann “afriend4ever54” Friend wrote @

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Amy (smile) it’s great when we realize others share our same challenges! Blessings Amy!!

The Pensieve

A homonym of pensive meaning deeply, seriously thoughtful. Though, it's also a pun, the 'sieve' part of the word alluding to the object's function of sorting meanings from a mass of thoughts or memories. (Source: Pottermore)
