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)
