Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

C is for…

Sometimes there are things in life that aren’t meant to stay.
Sometimes change may not be what we want.
Sometimes change is what we need.
~ Unknown Author ~

Thou art my portion, O Lord: I have said that I would keep
thy words. I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word. I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
~ Psalm 119:57-59 ~

You will meet two kinds of people in life: ones who build you up and ones who tear you down. But in the end, you’ll thank them both.
~ Author Unknown ~

Hello friends. (smile) Change can be a good thing. Sometimes, it’s challenging to walk or crawl through a season of change.

Many times, those adorable folks, around us, are instrumental in the changing and growing process we walk through.

Although, sometimes, I’m crawling as I pray when leaving the circus. (Circus can be any place not home)

Thank God for the power of prayers.  We’re living in times where Christ and prayers are truly needed.

A spiritual and positive lifestyle perspective, by faith brings:

Calmness and prayer to whether the storms at home and the circus.

Capable to care about what’s important in life.

Careless by casting our burdens above.
Sleep comes easier when we do. Somethings are not ours to carry. Let go.

Celebrate just because with dessert.

Chocolate that moves you to say hmmm, yummy. (grin)

Communication that is open and shared comes from confidence in what we know and courage from the inside out.

Compassion to listen and help where we can.

Control of what we choose to speak takes maturity.

Contentment until things change.

Abundant blessings, my friends and enjoy the D to Z challenge. (smile)

Feel free to share your thoughts.

This was truly a special post with many ways of celebrating and enjoying the letter “C” with the main one being our Lord and Savior. This means a lot with Easter almost here. Hope you have a blessed, safe, special wonderful celebration of the resurrection of Christ: Happy Easter, Ann (and family)!
