Celebrate Inner Strength


I’m stronger because I had to be, smart because of my mistakes, happier because of the sadness I’ve known, and now wiser because I’ve learned.
~ Unknown Author ~

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
~ Ephesians 6:10 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge, to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well in your world. This week I celebrate inner strength.

To God, be the glory.

Inner strength to endure. Inner strength to go the distance. Inner strength that the joy of the Lord is my strength.

To experience, the joy of the Lord strength is comforting when crawling or walking through challenging times.

To have inner strength through Y moments is powerful, encouraging and faith in action. (wink) Praise The Lord.

The ability to keep moving forward is inner strength.
The ability to weather storms is inner strength.
The ability to adjust in any environment is inner strength.

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

Enjoy your weekend!

As always, your thoughts are welcome. (smile)

Celebrate Abundantly Blessed


The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
~ William Shakespeare ~

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
~ John 10:9-10 ~

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 was rough. Sometimes, looking from a different perspective is a blessing. Why be or stay negative. Praise The Lord for faith and hope.

I believe that abundantly blessed is a state of mind. It took awhile to find a positive spin for such a ugly week.

Abundantly blessed to see the week from a different perspective. (wink)

The power of self encouragement can break old habits.

The choice, to keep moving forward, when challenged is a blessing.

The choice, to speak positive or turn the other cheek during a Y moment is a blessing.

The choice, to trust God, through uncertainty is a blessing. Praise The Lord.

Abundantly blessed is thankful and grateful for the things that matter.

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

Enjoy your weekend!

Celebrate Still Standing


Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.
~ Anonymous ~

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: by whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: and hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
~ Romans 5:1-5 ~

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. (smile) Still standing is my metaphor for Y moments that test us. This week, I celebrate still standing through challenging Y moments. (wink) Praise The Lord.

Still standing is experiencing and getting victory over yesterday’s unnecessary stress; dysfunctional relationships; toxic circus environments; object of bullies, manipulators and gossipers; betrayals; health issues; or _______________(fill in the blank).

Still standing is the most powerful self encouragement because I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Still standing remembers the faithfulness of God.

Still standing believes in who we are in Christ.

Still standing puts on the whole armour.

Still standing forgives.

Still standing knows the love of God.

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

Celebrate Bygones


Let go, or be dragged.
~ Unknown Author ~

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
~ Ephesians 6:13~

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)  Praise The Lord, all is well.

This week, I celebrate bygones from a different perspective. (wink)

Bygones can let go. Bye-bye yesterday stuff. Bye-bye minutes ago thing.

Bye-bye _____________ (fill in the blank).

Bygones forgive. Bygones move forward. Bygones bring wisdom to challenges.

Believing in who we are in Christ
You’re living in who we are in Christ
Growing in who we are in Christ
Observing in who we are in Christ
Nesting in who we are in Christ
Encouraging in who we are in Christ
Standing in who we are in Christ

Powerful is who we are in Christ. How about that.

To God be the glory.

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

Celebrate Peace Of Mind


The ability to listen and disregard certain voice tones, without reacting, demonstrates spiritual fruit and maturity. This helps to maintain a good attitude and peace of mind.
~ Ann V. Friend ~

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
~ John 16:33 ~

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. (smile) I’m content and doing well. (wink)

This week, I celebrate peace of mind. Peace of mind though trials and tribulations or the Y moments is a blessing. Praise The Lord.

Peace of mind stops tormenting thoughts. Peace of mind brings rest to a weary spirit. Peace of mind can comfort.

To speak and pray God’s Word in difficult or hurting times is powerful. To forgive and forget, is peace of mind. To let yesterday’s stuff go, is peace of mind.

Attitude is everything.

Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ
Effectual in enduring
Alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord
Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving
Enter into joy of thy Lord

Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new
Full of faith

Merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance
Increasing in knowledge of God
Nourished up in words of faith
Dwell in safety

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

Celebrate Blessed Are


Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
~ Author Unknown ~

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 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well. Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another blessed week to celebrate the small things.

This week, I celebrate The Beatitudes. Blessed are. All things work together.

Blessed are those situations, the environments, the little darlings drilling for that nerve or _______________(fill in the blank), test and serve a purpose.

Blessed are those who remember the faithfulness of God and who they are in Christ.

Beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety
Let love be without dissimulation
Experience of wisdom and knowledge
Set his love on me
Sow in tears, shall reap in joy
Edify one another
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you

Abound in hope
Run with patience the race that is set before us
Eyes of your understanding being enlightened

No matter where we are, we’re blessed.

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