Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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 ~

#atozchallenge B is for…

All things have a perfect place in life.  Joy is balanced by sorrow.  Day by night.  Giving by receiving. Wisdom by humility. The secret of life is balance, living in harmony and honor with that which surrounds you.
~ The Ancient One ~

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.

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Day 2 of the A to Z Challenge. The many ways to balance life, work and time is different for everyone. The upside to balance is amazing when we understand God can use anything, anyone, anytime to bring balance via blessings. Praise The Lord.

Sometimes, choices need balance
Sometimes, mind numbing fun brings balance
Sometimes, balance is letting go

Remembering to set aside time, for ourself, is wisdom to maintaining a balanced day.
Blessings others return blessings to us
Appreciate memorable moments
Laughter is good for the heart
Accomplishments are rewarding
Needs are met
Contentment while waiting
Experience teaches time management
Direction to keep moving forward

Having balance keeps us open to new opportunities every where.

Abundant blessings to keep the faith and enjoy a balanced weekend.

We have Sunday off. (grin) See you Monday! (wink)

Your thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Romans 8:28 has always been one of my favorite verses. It’s a “Go To” verse, especially when you’re having one of those crazy days.

Balance is so important because it is necessary. For me, starting my day meditating and talking with God, I find the peace and the joy to do those things that He has planned for me to do. Not saying that I have arrived because I haven’t. It is a learning process and I have relearn that it is through His grace that I find the balance I seek.
Have a great weekend.
