Week 15 If anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8″

I’ve been sick this week.  Started as cold now deep in my chest.  Sitting still and quieting the noise is all I’ve felt like doing.   Missed some reads mainly because I slept away a couple of days while sick.  I’ve had a headache I can’t seem to shake which is throwing my concentration off, so now this post may reflect my struggle.    LOL, laughing-at-self did discover it’s harder to have no opinion when you don’t feel well and are cranky.

I’ve visited around and read some other blogs.  This bible verse stood out to me on Lori King’s blog.

“…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Philippians 4:8”

Playing yo-yo and tug-a-war switching my focus.  @@ I feel great.  I am healthy, happy, joyful and full of energy.

I am grateful for my life and health.

I am grateful for my challenges so I might learn, overcome and soar.

I am grateful for all the opportunity and blessings that come my way.  I am grateful that I act and respond to all the opportunities and blessings that shape my life allowing me to give back and inspire others.

I am grateful for the spirit of light that touches my soul and guides me through the maze of my life revealing my truth.

“I am nature’s greatest miracle.”  ~Og Mandino

The bible contains some the most beautiful poetry in the world.

THE BEATITUDES

Matthew 5:3-16

3  Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4  Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6  Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13  ¶Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

  1. Thanks for the shout out Juneta! And a great reminder… we all have days where we don’t feel well or simply are a little off. Your gratitudes and posting of the BEATITUDES are a great tool for bringing us back to the light and love!
