IWSG Major Life Events


The great advantage of being in a rut is that when one is in a rut, one knows exactly where one is.

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. It’s the first Wednesday of the month where we share. Welcome Alex and October IWSG Co-Hosts:  Dolorah @ Book Lover, Christopher D. Votey, Tanya Miranda, andChemist Ken!

Major life events affect everyone differently.

IWSG Day Question: How do major life events affect your writing?

I shut down and walk away from writing. I choose not to write when my emotions are all over the place. Praise The Lord.

Certain emotions put me in a rut, which is why I love the Bennett quote. (smile)

Has writing ever helped you through something? Yes, once I cycled through my emotions, I write and share the experience.

Sometimes, sharing helps someone see a situation from a different perspective.

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just does everything by faith.

Enjoy the rest of your week and will meet you back here next month. (wink)

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

Celebrate Victory Does Come


The great advantage of being in a rut is that when one is in a rut, one knows exactly where one is.
~ Arnold Bennett ~

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
~ 1 Corinthians 15:57-58~

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.

This week, I celebrate no longer in a rut. Victory does come. Praise The Lord.

When faith is tested; challenging moments just keep on coming; and praying becomes a hour by hour survival; we can find ourselves in rut.

A rut experience can be positive and negative.

I pretty much stop talking about stuff and started castings my cares.

Hashtag # careless. (wink)

I slowly became okay with a sense of tranquility because it is, what it is. Keep moving forward.

I love the quote above because it helped me understand, yup, I’m in a rut, no pretending I’m not, and in time, victory does come.

Being in a rut can give clarity to a situation, by knowing it’s temporary, and evidently victory does come. (whew)

Being in a rut teaches something and is quite humbling.

Keep the faith and run your race.

Victory does come. Praise The Lord, my rut season is over.

Abundant blessings, my friends, keep the faith and enjoy your weekend.

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Please Pray For Me

Hello friends. I am not feeling well and find myself in a rut. (shock face) Nothing serious, just not quite myself.

I’ve prayed. Spoken the Word. I’m asking for your prayers. Sometimes, we need others to help us walk through the thing.

Thank God, for the power of prayer! (smile)

As God, as my witness, I need prayers. Thank you and God bless you, by faith, for your prayers.

Be blessed, my friends. (smile)
