Celebrate The Small Things, 19 June 2015

God never leads us where he cannot keep us. His grace is always sufficient for us in any and every circumstance of life.
~ 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. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts as we celebrate the small things this week.

I celebrate the blessing of God’s amazing grace that walked me through this week.

Grace for the woulda, coulda, shoulda. (wink)

Grace to run the race. Wahoo, something to do. (smile)

Praise The Lord.

All is well in my world. (smile) I pray the same for my friends and my enemies.

Blessings, my friends, as we bask in God’s amazing grace and keep the faith throughout the weekend!

Celebrate The Small Things, 12 June 2015

Prayer is the best medicine. God is the best doctor.
~ Unknown Author ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Lexa and co-hosts as we celebrate the small things this week.

I’ve been nursing a pinched nerve in my right arm and shoulder area. Taking medication and trying to rest my arm. I’m right handed…

I celebrate no surgery is needed and answered prayers.

Praise The Lord.

Other than that, all is well in my world. (smile)

Blessings, my friends as we keep the faith to enjoy the weekend!

Celebrate The Small Things, 5 June 2015


Stand still, smile and be strong even if others are not, even if others will not, and even if others cannot.
~ Unknown Author ~

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
~ Psalm 139:14 ~

Hello friends (smile) It’s a beautiful thing to know the love of God, His faithfulness, and His mercy and His grace. Praise The Lord. (smile)

Today, join me in celebrating that we are loved unconditionally and the praise of being fearfully and wonderfully made in His image.

I celebrate the blessing of grace and strength He provides, to keep the faith, to walk and sometimes crawl through the ebbs and flows, of life and the circus, as I run the race. Thank you Lord.

Friends, from my heart to yours, I celebrate your continued support of my writing and blogging efforts. Thank you with {{hugs}}

It is my prayer of faith that God blesses each of you in a mighty way.

Abundant blessings, my friends and enjoy your day! (smile)

IWSG Misdirection

Hello friends. (smile) A belated welcome to our June IWSG Host and Co-hosts.

Misdirection is irrelevant things and stuff or Y’s wanting something that’s really nothing but takes up all your time.

Sometimes misdirection is what if drills.
Sometimes misdirection interrupts our ability to run the race.
Sometimes misdirection can take up the whole day.
Sometimes misdirection is a test.
Sometimes misdirection can drive someone nuts!

Misdirection is prevalent at the circus.

Working full time and trying to write toward the end of a work day is challenging.  Just keep the faith to run the race.

Keep the faith walking through misdirection because at the end, of the day, sleep comes easy and ah what a blessing! Praise The Lord.

Your thoughts are always welcome.

Faith to Run The Race

The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day.”
~ Amy Gatliff ~

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
~ Hebrews 11:1-3 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I’m off schedule and late posting again today. Whoops.

I see run the race with many possibilities. At least 28 days, of possibilities, will finish the month. (wink)

Praise The Lord for giving me vigor to keep writing. Wahoo, something to do. (smile)Here is where my creativity and imagination met. (grin)

The possibilities, to run the race, will be a used as a metaphor–the way I use the circus. Oooh, the possibilities. (wink)

Facing a day, by faith, to run the race, while walking through can really be a blessings.

Blessings, my friends, as we keep the faith to run the race. (smile)

Ready, Set, Go

There is no safest place in this world than that peaceful world you created with your imagination. There is no safest relationship in this life than your own relationship with yourself.
~ Unknown Author ~

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
~ 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 ~

Hello friends. (smile) I’m walking on the wild side again. Wahoo, something to do. (wink)

It is my faith to participate and compete the BlogHer’s June National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) without quitting.

The theme for June is Ready, Set, Go.So, we’ll see how creative I can be with the ready, set, go theme, as we keep the faith to run the race.

Blessings, my friends and sleep well tonight. (smile)
