Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

A is for…

The pessimist says opportunities are NO WHERE.

The optimist says opportunities are NOW HERE.

Both see the same words, but read it differently. That’s Life!

~ Unknown Author ~


Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.

Blessed are they that keep his testimonies,and that seek him with the whole heart.

They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.

~ Psalm 119:1-4~

Hello friends. (smile) Lifestyles, like attitude and perspective, are driven by positive or negative views.

The Word of God becomes a lifestyle as we mature and grow spiritually. Doers of the word.

The beautiful thing about writing is its uniqueness, to the thoughts and experiences, of the author.

A spiritual and positive lifestyle perspective, by faith, brings the ability to:

Adapt to the ebbs and flows of life and people.

Abide in daily routines while dealing with acquaintances.

Abound in where we are today.

Accentuate the positive.

Accept our strengthens and weakness by knowing who we are and what we bring to the table.  No one on earth is perfect.

Adjusting our attitudes to see another aspect of  situation or an author’s perspective.

Appreciate all good things come from above, to include people in our life. 

Appreciate a writer’s creativity.

Appreciate those who visit and comment on our blog.

Abundant blessings friends and enjoy the B to Z challenge! (smile)

Feel free to share your thoughts. (smile)

What a great idea, to include an excerpt from Psalm 119 corresponding with the letter of the day. It’s a fun thought to think that the Psalmist was writing from A to Z long before we came up with the idea!
