Celebrate The Small Things, 27 March 2015

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

~ Ephesians 4:32~
In life, you will realize there is a purpose for every person you meet. Some are there to test you, some will use you, some will teach you, and some will bring out the worst in you, while others bring out the best.
~ Unknown Author~

You can’t download a lifestyle. 

~Unknown Author ~

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 

~Galatians 5:25 ~

Hello friends.  (smile)  I’m having faith as I’m attempting to walk on the wild side and step out of my comfort zone again. Doing what?  (smile) 

Participating in the Blogging from A to Z April 2015 Challenge. 

By faith and the grace of God, see you at the finish line.  (wink)

Come join me, it’ll be fun.  (grin) Today, we’re to reveal our theme.  Drum roll please.  

My theme is Lifestyle.  I will Appreciate to Zeal, my way, through a spiritual and positive lifestyle perspective.  

Again, it’ll be fun in spite of the unknown.  I’ll keep the faith and revamp my writing woes through the process.  Thank you Lord.  

So I’m encouraged, at the moment, and plan on meeting new friends as I visit other A to Z bloggers during the April challenge.   (smile) 

Blessings and enjoy your day.  (smile) 

Your thoughts are always welcome.

Life is like a party.  You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didn’t come.  But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you.  And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.~ Unknown Author ~ 

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. 

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.~ Philippians 4:11-13 ~ 

Hello friends.  (smile)  It’s a beautiful thing to learn contentment, as we keep the faith.  The ebbs and flows, in life, will teach, change and grow us, one way or another.  Praise The Lord, by faith, for the victory.  

Sometimes, we want ________________ (fill in the blank) now.  Sometimes, God has something better.  

Contentment becomes powerful when we learn timing is everything as we walk through. 

Contentment becomes powerful when we learn ebbs and flows, in life, are temporary.   

Contentment helps to release our angst and have patience for the manifestation.    

Contentment helps to adapt while waiting. 

Contentment helps to let go and move forward.  

Contentment helps to keep the faith. 

Contentment is a state of mind, while going to the challenging circus everyday.  

Contentment is knowing who you are in Christ, in spite of words spoken about us. 

Contentment is blessings our enemies by choice.  It give God glory.

Contentment is loving ourself flaws and all.  Thank God for His mercy and grace. 

Contentment is loving those who support us when we need it most. 

Contentment promotes inner peace.  No angst.  

Contentment promotes trust that God can work all things out.  

Contentment promotes praise because we can.  

Blessings, my friends to be content until God changes our situation.  (smile) 

Your thoughts or comments are always welcome.

Celebrate The Small Things, 20 March 2015

I’m stronger because I had to be, smart because of my mistakes, happier because of the sadness I’ve known, and now wiser because I’ve learned. ~Unknown Author ~

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 ~

Hello friends.  (smile) Hope all is well in your world.  (smile)  

It’s a beautiful thing when God gives us what we need.  He always provides.  Praise The Lord.  A reason to celebrate the small things. 

Learning to celebrate the small things grow, as we walk through with faith, knowing how God can work all things out.  (smile)


Yesterday was my two year blogging anniversary.  Praise The Lord.  Celebrate the small things. 

Thank you friends and abundant blessings for supporting my blog.  I appreciate the support! Celebrate the small things.

I give glory to God for my second  year  anniversary.  Only He knows the number of times, I almost quit.  (shock face) Celebrate the small things.

So today, I celebrate the small things, I no longer take for granted.  

Keeping the faith is powerful when we keep walking through trusting the faithfulness of God working  all things out.  (smile) Celebrate the small things. 

Friends, have a blessed and great day, celebrate the small things! (smile)
