Celebrate Moments of Spontaneous Joy


Hello everyone, hope all is well. Welcome Lexa and co-host, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge, to another week to celebrate the small things.

Today, I celebrate moments of spontaneous joy. Praise The Lord.

I’m off schedule today regarding posting.

A good and unexpected massage after a manicure, dinner and good conversation with a friend, having a jam session in my car listening to my favorite music, were my moments of spontaneous joy. I had the best time. (wink)

Have a great weekend and keep the faith.

Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Celebrate Hope and Strength


At the end of the day, all you need is hope and strength. Hope that it will get better and strength to hold on until it does.

IWSG September 7th Question


One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time.
~ Author Unknown ~

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.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ~

Hello friends. (smile) It’s the first Wednesday of the month. Hope all is well in your world. Welcome Alex C and September IWSG Co-hosts:

Elsie Amata

September 7th question: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?

Hmmm, it’s a bit challenging when the non-writing job is busy and hectic; nonetheless, it pays the bills and provides for necessities. (wink)

It’s how we define priorities. It’s balancing time.

It comes down to choices, time management, and adapting through the seasons of life.

Someday, I’ll write full-time. Until then, I write when I can. It is, what it is.

Stay encouraged to do the best you can, when you can, while keeping the faith.

Abundant blessings, my friends, and enjoy your day.

I will be back.

Abundant blessings, keep the faith and enjoy your weekend. (smile)

Celebrate KTF


Keeping the faith is powerful when we believe in the love and faithfulness of The Lord. Faith that moves mountains.
~ Ann V. Friend ~

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
~ Romans 1:17 ~

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

This week I celebrate KTF. Keeping the faith. (wink)
Celebrate KTF

It’s still quite busy at the circus. KTF.

Adjusting to challenges and colorful moments. KTF.

I thank God for his mercy and his grace as I continue to grow in my faith journey. KTF.

Praying. KTF.

Resting when I can.  KTF.  Praise The Lord for peaceful sleep!

Bottom line, I count it all joy and all is well in my world. KTF.

Blessings, my friends to  KTF and enjoy your weekend. (smile)

Celebrate Smiles


A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
~ Unknown Author ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

This week, I celebrate smiles. Both giving and receiving smiles.

Thank you Lord for the beautiful gift and blessing of smiles.

There are times a smile can make us light up like a Christmas tree.

There are times, when pushed and tested, a smile can change our focus.

There are times, a thought brings a smile.

There are times, a smile disarms our enemies. (wink)

Wahoo, here is something to do. (grin)

There are times, ___________________ (fill in the blank) brings a smile.

Aah, made you think. (smile)

Blessings with a smile, my friends, as we keep the faith to enjoy giving and receiving smiles today.

Feel free to share your thoughts.
