Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

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

#atozchallenge T is for…

Experience teaches only the teachable.
~ Aldous Huxley ~

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 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome to Day 23 of the A to Z Challenge. It’s been said “experience is the best teacher”. I agree. Being teachable contributes to experiences, both the good and not so good.

My thoughts, on teachable, reflect how God can use all things: angst, pain, tears, joy, happiness, love, X or Y, and ______________(fill in the blank) to give experience toward his purpose. Praise The Lord for experience that leads to a testimony.

Teachable experience helps growth and maturity, especially, as we get older. The younger generation will expect us to set the example.


The upside to teachable:   

To make better choices
Engaging in better communication
Approachable and open to a different perspective
Choosing to be positive
Having courage to learn something new
Astute in seeing the bigger picture
Balanced is a great place to be
Learning should never stop
Ever ready to move forward

Abundant blessings to keep the faith and enjoy your weekend.

I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

We’d rather not be taught through pain, but sometimes that’s the only way we learn.
