Celebrate The Mindset of Positivity 


There is no danger of developing eyestrain from looking on the bright side of things.
~ Unknown Author ~

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
~ Philippians 4:8 ~

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.

Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (smile) This week, I celebrate a new month and the mindset of positivity. Why be negative?

Thoughts are powerful. Patience is required. Self encouragement is a necessity.  

July was dog barking rough for me. Been in a fiery furnace situation while going around the same mountain.  Bygones.

Praise The Lord, his presence provided strength that helped me walk and move forward because I was never alone.  

I share these encouraging thoughts:

Perseverance to keep going
Optimistic with hope
Significance of faith and trust in The Lord
Inspirational scriptures
Thrive on the power of scriptures
Inspiring thoughts encourage
Versatility in ways to stay positive
Inner peace is a blessing
Thankful everyday
Yielding to defeat negative thoughts

There are times when silence is a blessing to listen.

Positive thoughts lead to positive communication.

Changing focus and perspective, about a situation, is wisdom to keep moving forward.

To God, be the glory.

Positivity is energy.  It attracts people. (wink)

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord. Enjoy your weekend!

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

IWSG August 2nd – What Are Your Pet Peeves


Some books leave us free and some books make us free.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~ 

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
~ Romans 15:4 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (wink) Yay, its the first Wednesday of the month where we share…

Welcome Alex and August IWSG Co-hosts: Christine Rains, Dolarah @ Book Lover, Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor, Yvonne Ventresca, and LG Keltner.

IWSG Day Question: What are your pet peeves when reading/writing/editing?

I could have fun sharing about pet peeves. (smile)

I must share pertaining to reading/writing/editing. (wink)

Like everything else in life, learning to adapt and adjust brings contentment.

I love reading. I love writing. I’ve been in a season where time gets away from me. I blink and another month has passed. 

It’s extremely busy at the circus.

As we age, adapting and adjusting is a blessing.  

Praise The Lord for rest and peaceful sleep.

I’m encouraged with hope and faith the circus busyness slows down….

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just does everything by faith. Enjoy the rest of your week.
