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 ~

Celebrate So What….It’s Liberating!

Some will, some don’t, so what!
~ American Proverb ~

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
~ Romans 8:31 ~

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. This week, I celebrate “so what” because it’s liberating.   “So what” helped my sense of humor remember that laughter is good for the heart.  (wink)   Praise The Lord.

The power of words and how we’re creative in using them is liberating.

“So what” is my updated metaphor of hashtag # careless, casting burdens, frustrations, everything to The Lord. (smile)

Things become too heavy for us to carry. 

“So what” is a attitude of faith that regardless of the many challenges, changes beyond our comfort level, if God be for us, who can be against us?

Whatever it is, we’re in good hands, equipped to walk through it, baby step through it, or my personal favorite–crawl through it.

“So what” when we stumble, thank God for his grace.

“So what”  we require glasses when we’re not sleeping, thank God,  we can see.

“So what” when the little darlings start strife, thank God, we can smile and walk away.

“So what” is quite liberating when we rise above anything.   Thank God, we’re more than conquerors. 

With all the things life situations can throw at us, “so what” we’re still standing, sitting or squatting strong.  (wink)

Abundant blessings, my friends to enjoy your day and weekend, because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Humor is important and just look at some of God’s signs of silliness. Creatures like aardvarks, giraffes and mosquitoes! I love each for different reasons, although I wish mosquitoes were less and giraffes, more! 😉

Our enemy of peace would love to rejoice over our being stuck in the weeds of stress, confusions and tribulation. BUT GOD IS and if he be for us he is more than the whole world against us therefore no weapon will ever be able to prosper. “So What”

Wise advice. Give it to God. He can handle it and then we don’t stress it.
