Celebrate The Small Things, 29 May 2015

It isn’t always necessary to achieve great things. Sometimes, just surviving is a great achievement.
~ Author Unknown ~

And he said unto me, my grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I extend a special smiling shout out to Lexa and co-hosts because we’re blessed to see another Friday to celebrate the small things. (wink)

Praise The Lord.

I pray you’re doing well. (smile)

I was back at the circus this week. Wahoo, something to do. (wink)

I celebrate surviving a brutal week, through prayer and keeping the faith.

Thank God for his mercy and grace that helped to endure things and stuff, as well as, the X and Y moments.

I celebrate the spiritual fruit within, faith, long suffering and temperance. Each grew by the grace of God.

Finally, I celebrate the smiles and laughter, among friends and co-workers, during this brutal week. We survived and are still standing.

Wahoo, we made it. God blessed us big!

How about you, how was your week?

Feel free to share your thoughts.

Blessings, my friends and enjoy your weekend. (smile)

Celebrate The Small Things, 22 May 2015

Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish it.

The many blessings in life.

The patience to just keep the faith.

Count Our Blessings

Life is filled with happiness, sadness, tears, smiles, laughter and other emotions but when life gets you down, just be strong about it and keep your head up high and have faith in all things in life. Always remember: God is at your side, always.
~ 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 ~

Celebrate The Small Things, 15 May 2015

Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.~ Romans 14:19 ~

If your heart is full of love; you’ll always have something to give.
~ Unknown Author ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things. (wink)

Sometimes, we just need to let things go, keep the faith, and celebrate the small things.

I celebrate having the day off and sleeping in this morning. I celebrate those in my life that bring balance.

I celebrate a faith filled life with all its ebbs and flows.

I celebrate joining a poetry class. Wahoo, something to do. (grin)

I celebrate answered prayers. Thank you Lord!

Abundant blessings, my friends, as we just keep the faith and celebrate the small things. (smile)

Faith Through The Ebbs and Flows

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
~ Jeremiah 32:27 ~

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
~ Unknown Author ~

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
~ Hebrews 11:1 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well in your world. I’m balanced and back to writing. (wink)

Taking a few extra days away from the circus. Wahoo, something to do. All is well in my world. Praise The Lord. (smile)

How deep is your faith when ebbs and flows come?

Too many times, we forget just how faithful God is. Life brings ebbs and flows; there is no avoiding it.

Faith is powerful when aligned with the will of God.It’s a beautiful thing to know yourself and just keep the faith walking through the ebbs and flows in life.

It’s a beautiful thing when you know who you are in Christ.

It’s a beautiful thing when your faith is in God.

It’s a beautiful thing when you know the power of speaking God’s Word over any situation.

Is there anything too hard for God?

It’s a beautiful thing to know rhetoric when you hear it.

It’s a beautiful thing to know love unconditionally and recognize loves never fails.

It’s a beautiful thing to be content until God brings the manifestation. Thank you Lord.

It’s a beautiful thing to let go of anything or anyone that disturbs the peace within us.

It’s a beautiful thing to be grateful.

Grateful for life.

Grateful for family and friends.

Grateful for answered prayers and God’s protection.

Blessings, my friends, as we just keep the faith through the ebbs and flows in life.

Feel free to share your thoughts. (smile)

The key to keeping your balance is knowing when you’ve lost it.
~ Unknown Author ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome IWSG co-hosts and a special shout out to Alex Cavanaugh!

I hope all is well in your world.

All is well in my world. Thank you, Lord.

Ever feel so tired that a break is needed? I need to unplug and balance a few things.My fun meter is depleted. Sooooo, I’m taking a break from the circus and writing a few days. (wink)

Wahoo, like a spiritual retreat with mind numbing fun!

Wahoo, nothing but fun things to do. (grin)

Blessings, my friends, I’ll catch up with blogs, in a few days. (smile)

A To Z Reflections

Hello friends. (smile) My reflections, about the A to Z blogging challenge, is all positive. 

I truly enjoyed participating in the A to Z Challenge.  I am grateful for the experience.

By the grace of God, I finally completed a writing challenge
without quitting.   Wahoo, Praise The Lord.

I enjoyed visiting many blogs during April’s challenge.  It was fun and a bit exhausting once it ended.

My faith and confidence to continue writing grew. I’m becoming a better writer because of writing challenges.

I met and started following many talented writers, who inspired me to keep on writing!   

I’ve developed a stronger love for poetry. By faith, someday, I will write poetry. (wink)

Thanks and God bless you times ten, for visiting, liking and commenting  during the challenge. {{hugs}} It helped me more than you could possibly know. (smile)

Blessings until the next challenge.
