Before befriending others, you have to be your own best friend. Before correcting others, you have to correct yourself. Before making others happy, you have to make yourself happy. It is not termed as selfish, but personal development. Once you balance yourself, only then can you balance the world.

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.
A friendly reminder, I write when I can since the circus pays my salary and I like a meal and place to sleep regularly. (wink)
This week, I celebrate Keeping The Faith (KTF) because faith stimulates hope. Praise The Lord.
People, environments, unexpected circus distractions can bring change whether we like it or not. We can only control ourself.
Change is my metaphor for personal development. Change forces self reflection. Change eventually heals, promotes and brings wholeness.
Spirit fruit comes from within. We can’t give what’s not within us.
Life experience is the best teacher. It shows an ability to adapt when life brings issues.
KTF stimulates hope that tomorrow brings _____________(fill in the blank).
Everything, whether good or bad teaches something.
Thank God for his mercy and grace when we stumble.
As we change, the ability to be humble comes naturally. It demonstrates self-control and strength that runs deep.
Praise The Lord.
KTF stimulates hope to change perspective on those Y moments.
KTF stimulates hope during situations and conflicts that feel like a fiery furnace.
KFT stimulates hope when trusting the faithfulness of God in all things.
Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord. Enjoy your weekend!
As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
