Celebrate Blessed By Faith


The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
~ William Shakespeare ~

And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.

Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
~ Luke 6:20-26 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.
Blessed By Faith
This week, I celebrate many things. To know that God can use anyone (even enemies) and any circumstance, to bless us, is a beautiful thing. It’s a painful process until the realization that it’s temporary and part of growth, nonetheless, blessed by faith.

Praise The Lord for blessings.

Imagine smiling or practicing the pause to breathe before reacting. Powerful! (grin)

Friends, we’re blessed, by faith, regardless of __________________ (fill in the blank) because his Word tells us blessed are…………

  1. Hello Ann – a great message for anyone who is perhaps struggling at the moment and I loved the Shakespeare quote as often the theft is the least of the problems as one plays anger, revenge, fear etc over in ones mind!
