Celebrate Hashtag (#) Careless


Be fearless when it comes to life, and careless when it comes to what people say and think about you.
~ Unknown Author ~

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
~ 1 Peter 5:6-7 ~

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.

Hope all is well in your world. This week, I celebrate hashtag (#) careless. (wink)

The creative ways to communicate our experience, through writing, is liberating.

No dead bones walking. Spiritually alive and open to life with all its stuff being   f  r  e  e.  (smile)

Hashtag (#) careless is my metaphor for letting go; rising above, moving forward actively and not passively.

Hashtag (#) careless is encouraging words to release and let go of stuff that weights us down.

To let go, is giving it to the one person, that nothing is to hard for him. Praise The Lord.

Hashtag (#) careless realizes circumstances are temporary because we walk by faith, not by sight. (wink)

Hashtag (#) careless puts anything negative or draining at the foot of the cross. Too heavy to carry.

Hashtag (#) careless can rise about opinions that are just that opinions. No internalizing garbage.

Hashtag (#) careless keeps the faith because the just live by faith.

Abundant blessings, my friends to hashtag (#) careless and enjoy your day and weekend. (smile)

Your thoughts are always welcome. (wink)

Celebrate KTF


Keeping the faith, praying and meditating, on the Word of God, defeats negativity every single time bringing tree standing inner strength. For me, praying Psalms 36, 91 and 109, with faith, has been powerful in situations and environments. Never lose faith in the power of prayer.
~ Ann V. Friend ~

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~ Romans 8:38-39 ~

Hello friends, 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. (smile)

Hope all is well in your world. This week, I celebrate KTF and away from the circus. I left a gone fishing sign on my door. (wink)

Everyday we have a choice. The ability to remember that is wisdom. KTF.

KTF is a choice. KTF is seeing situations from a different perspective.

Regardless, of things and stuff or Y moments, nothing separates us from God’s love and his mercy and grace. KTF.

When we know who we are in Christ, we have empathy and can bless our enemies. KTF.

KTF is powerful through stressful and toxic environments.   KTF has hope.

KTF is knowing, we’re more than conquerors.

KTF is patience that endures.

God will never leave us or forsake us. KTF.

Praise The Lord for those things and the little darlings that help us grow and mature.  KTF.

Glory to God, each time we’re the light in a dark environment. KTF.

Abundant blessings, my friends, as we keep the faith. Enjoy your weekend.

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

IWSG October 5th Question


Some see a weed, some see a wish…
~ Unknown Author ~

Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
~ Romans 14:19 ~

Hello friends. (smile) It’s the first Wednesday of the month. Hope all is well in your world. Welcome Alex and October IWSG Co-hosts:

Beverly Stowe McClure
Megan Morgan
Viola Fury
Madeline Mora-Summonte
Angela Wooldridge
Susan Gourley

October 5th Question: When do you know your story is ready?

Ah, the possibilities to answer this question comes down to perspective and how we choose to share it. (smile)

Blogging a post is my metaphor for story.

I know a post is ready when the intent of my thoughts come together.

Intent being sharing experiences, offering encouragement to keep hope and faith, in spite of opinions that may discourage us from _______________ (fill in the blank).

I know self-encouragement is powerful to continue writing and sharing our work.

I believe when others encourage us, it’s validation to never give up.

Abundant blessings, my friends, as we keep the faith and tell our story, as only we can. (wink)

I would love to hear your thoughts.
