Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

Celebrate I’m Okay

There are times, I’m okay is a appropriate response.
~ Ann V Friend ~

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another week to celebrate the small things.

This week was a time to weep and a time to mourn and I celebrate I’m okay.

I cried a lot this week and I’m okay. Parts of my life is in limbo and I’m okay.

Praying and waiting on God and I’m okay.

It’s a beautiful thing to speak I’m okay in any season. The power of spoken words.

I give glory to God, in sharing, that to everything there is a season and I’m okay. (smile)

Abundant blessings my friends to keep the faith be okay to enjoy your weekend.

Your thoughts are welcome.

It IS okay to say this! I say “I’m moving forward” or “His Grace is workin in me” if I don’t feel like saying much but want to stay positive. I love the Ecc. reference. I use this verse as the foundation for my writing actually. I am believing that you will continue to experience God’s love and grace in ways you never have before!
