Roll With It Wednesday

Sometimes, the blessing is remembering victory because we’ve been there and done that. Praise The Lord, He walked us through it. (smile)

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

Hello friends, I just love roll with it Wednesdays (wink and a smile) Life is tough enough without having something to bring a smile or change the focus. Roll with it, does that for me. (smile) As well as, singing a favorite song because Romans 8:28 says “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.” We can get comfort, from this scripture, knowing that He can work all things out. Roll with it!

Everyday, we encounter things and stuff. There will always be something or someone just waiting to push our button. Traffic. Sleepless night. Noise. Fill in the blank_____________.

Roll with it equates to letting it go! Acknowledging it is what, it is. Life is too short to stress over something or someone. (shock face) Let it go!

You are too…

Laughter

Hello friends (smile) I’m stuck with work and chores this weekend. I encourage you to laugh and keep the faith this weekend because we’re blessed! (a wink and a smile)

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

Its true that laughter really is cheap medicine. It’s a prescription anyone can afford. And best of all, you can fill it right now.

Hello friends. (smile) It’s a beautiful thing to smile and enjoy a deep down in your belly laugh. (smile)

Laughter, sometimes, reminds us to lighten up! Enjoy life. Have fun. Roll with it. (cheesy smile)

Yes, it can be hard to laugh, when we’re going through things and stuff or Y is working that last nerve. (shock face)

Ever notice, how God can send someone to bring a smile or tell us something to make us laugh, before the flesh man makes an appearance? Many days, I’ve thanked Him for his timing and His grace. (smile)

I laughed so hard the first time I saw the phase “Not my Circus, not my monkeys.” I see this as a reminder to mind…

It’s Another Roll With It Wednesday

It’s hectic at the circus! (smile) Have a blessed roll with it day!

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

Wahoo, it’s roll with it Wednesday! We can smile and roll with it, by faith, that God has this day under control. (wink)
We can smile and roll with it because whether someone love us, God does.

We can smile and roll with it because we are renewing our mind and thinking better thoughts.

We can smile and roll with it because we are blessed and highly favored.

We can smile and roll with it because it is, what it is and God is in charge.

We can smile and roll with it because if God is for us, who can be against us.

We can smile and roll with it because God does not give us more than we can bear.

We can smile and roll with it because God heals the hurts and we know that this too shall pass.

We can smile and roll with it because…

Boundaries To Let Go

It’s a beautiful thing when we exercise boundaries. (wink) Life gets a whole lot easier! Wahoo!

Praise The Lord because the joy of The Lord is my strength at this very moment. Friends, blessings as you enjoy your weekend.

I’ve got a special date with my Lord and Savior, Jesus. (wink)

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

As we mature, there comes a time when we need boundaries, to know when, to let go and love from a distance. Adapting and adjusting to trials and tribulation, and things and/or stuff requires being spirit led with fruit of the spirit as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23.

Possessing love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control) within us helps with trials and tribulations, and things and/or stuff.

Trials and tribulations, things and/or stuff happens. The test is how we react to it. There will always be something or someone testing us. It’s all part of life, change and growth. Many times, we forget to breathe and focus to stay spiritually calm.  (wink)   The flesh man rises.

Flesh man rising is where a warning should register but nope, we proceed anyway. Sometimes, we…

When motives are pure and our words are from the heart, blessing others is the blessing!

Thank you all for being a friend! {{hugs}}

Wahoo, TGIF, my friends (smile) This quote spoke to me! It represents taking chances or another way, to look at this, would be faith. Life happens, regardless of our status in life. (shock face)

I will mention it again, we all bring something to the table. Welcome to my table (smile)

Today, I’m serving up faith and encouragement. It takes courage to be different. It takes courage not to follow the crowd. It takes courage to come here everyday and share parts of life, sometimes with no feedback. It takes courage to ignore less than kind remarks. My friends, that’s faith, doing it anyway, day after day. (smile)

Many search the internet for various things and stuff. Keep writing, keep posting. Our words will always be there. God gives free will to choose. When ready, eyes are open to the very message needed to be seen! (smile)

It’s a beautiful…

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, A Time For Everything

Blessings as we keep the faith!

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

What a perfect illustration to Romans 8:28, “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.”

As long as we live, we will experience seasons in our life. (shock face) Seasons to make us grow, mature, all in all, change. Remember 🎶🎶going around the mountain, one more time.🎶🎶 (wink)

We must keep our sense of humor because some seasons can be tough. Learning to live, by faith, and adjusting to stuff can make some seasons bearable. Sometimes, we have to get out of our own way. (nervous smile)

Being able to share with each other, through seasons, is a blessing. Having family and friends is a blessing. Casting cares to our Heavenly Father is a blessing. Faith is a blessing. Learning to look, at seasons, from a different perspective, is a blessing. (smile) Thank…
