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 ~

IWSG Creativity


Whatever may be our natural talents, the art of writing is not acquired all at once.
~Jean-Jacques Rousseau ~

Hello friends. (smile) The first Wednesday, of the month, is The Insecure Writer’s Group (IWSG) where we share about writing.

Welcome Alex and November IWSG Co-Hosts:

Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor http://thecynicalsailor.blogspot.com/
J Q Rose  http://www.jqrose.com/
Ann V. Friend  https://afriendofjesus2013.com/
Elizabeth Seckman   http://eseckman.blogspot.com/  

Thank you Alex for the opportunity to co-host again. (smile)

November 7 question – How has your creativity in life evolved since you began writing?

I’ve learned to embrace my own writing style. I’ve learned creative ways to use words, bible scriptures and my faith. Praise The Lord.

I’ve become a better writer. Still learning the work, write balance thing.

I must thank all the talented, creative and accomplished writers that I met since joining the group. (wink)

Thank you, your encouragement helped me embraced my abilities to keeping writing.

By faith, quitting is no longer an option.

Someday, there will be a masterpiece with my name on it. (wink)

I believe creativity promotes seeing from a different perspective.

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

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

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)

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.
~ Arnold Bennett ~

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1 ~

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)

Things About Me

Things about me. I love reading, music and playing games on my IPHONE. (smile) God blessed me with the gift of encouragement, ways to sow His Word, a sense of humor and a beautiful smile. (cheesy smile)

I’m an introvert by preference. (shock face) I’ve learned to adapt and adjust in situations and through the storms of life, it’s how “roll with it” and “let it go” became sound bites for me. The joy of The Lord is my strength. (smile)

Like many others out there, I’ve had a difficult season to walk through. I was never alone. I love how my Lord and Saviour protects and takes care of me. (smile) I pray a lot. I pray for each of you. (smile)

I thank God for the courage to write and be different. There will always be someone who needs a kind word or courage to be their self.

I am grateful for the awesome people I’ve met through blogging. I am humbled by your words of encouragement back to me. (smile) God bless you!

I love blogging and writing, for the different writing forums, because it’s a way to sow encouragement and hope to someone who may or may not know they are not alone or the next step. I am a humble and nice person who tries to visit and support many different bloggers. (smile)

I blog from my own personal experiences in hope that someone finds comfort and gets to know God, through His Son, Jesus, like I know Him. (smile)

I sow and God waters. I’m an open vessel about my Father’s business. ( smile) I hope this gives you more insight into Ann Friend.

Be blessed! (smile) As always, your thoughts are welcome.
