In life, you will realize there is a purpose for every person you meet. Some are there to test you, some will use you, some will teach you, and some will bring out the worst in you, while others bring out the best.
~ Unknown Author ~
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

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 smile and say bye-bye 2017 and celebrate perseverance. (wink)
Praise The Lord.
Perseverance is powerful when we know, who we are in Christ, everything we need comes from within us.
Spiritual fruit, love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance, over flows within us.
Perseverance, through environments and Y moments, chooses to see another perspective while maintaining self-control.
Perseverance learns to endure.
Perseverance embraces contentment.
Perseverance forgives and forgets, by choice, through the grace, of God.
There are times, perseverance shows inner strength to those around us.
Perseverance has a purpose. Praise The Lord.
Happy New Year, my friends!
Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord.
As always, your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)
