IWSG Balance

The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.
– Amy Gatliff –

Hello friends and welcome to this months co-hosts, LG Keltner, Donna Hole, Lisa Buie-Collard and SL Hennessy. (smile) My message this month is short and a reminder to keep life balanced.

Balance is quite important these days. Trying to do everything without balance is exhausting.

I’m becoming content to do what I can each day. I encourage you to be content doing what you can.

Sometimes, a break from our normal routine does wonders for peace of mind.
Sometimes, just listening to music calms the nerves.
Sometimes, spending time with a friend talking and laughing warms the heart.
Sometimes, keeping our sense of humor lightens our mood.
Sometimes, quiet time promotes the best sleep.
Sometimes, ______________ (fill in the blank).

Just for fun, what is balance for you?

Blessings, as we remember to balance for the little things……

A balanced life is having the right priorities in life (Lord, family, others, self). Doing what is most important first and not fretting about the unimportant stuff. Lord bless.

Balance is taking one step at a time, staying focused on Jesus, and making a promise to myself and Him to complete one important task a day that He lays out for me in scripture. Oh and don’t sweat the small stuff. Many blessings in the Lord. 🙂

Balance means getting done what I need to and still having time to do what I really want to be doing. Looking forward to more balance in my life. Happy IWSG day!

Hi Ann! I spent most of today trudging through an Arboretum, dropping my worries like a tree sheds leaves. I always wonder why I don’t do it more often? I really need that time to decompress, and to be able to actually hear what God wants to say. It was wonderful.

Balance means sometimes I won’t be able to do everything on my plate. Not to worry, there’s another day. Easier said than done for a personality such as mine. Lol.
