Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

IWSG Appreciate All Things


Sometimes life will test you but remember this:  When you walk up a mountain, your legs get stronger.  
~ 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)  Life moments can and will challenge us and so will people.  Appreciate every challenge, person, thing, because in the long run, these things contribute to making us stronger.
Appreciate the ones who support our writing efforts.
Appreciate the critics.
Appreciate the little things that make us smile.
Appreciate those “work your nerves” moments.
Appreciate the good and the bad.
Appreciate _______________ (fill in the blank).

As strength builds, walking, crawling through is liberating and powerful.
Appreciate all things, because at the end of the day, we’re still standing, we’re blessed and we’re loved.
Enjoy your Mike, Mike, Mike day! (wink)

I literally walk up a mountain (called Silly) to get stronger! I can’t say that I always love the climb but I *do* love the view from the top and the relief of the descent.

Have a great weekend, Ann 😀

It’s true. You’ve got to appreciate what you’ve got and I think so many people are bogged down with depression and anger over what they don’t. It’s an important lesson. Inspirational post!
