Five Minute Friday - Tell




So many times we send a prayer up to Heaven and then wait anxiously for the answers to come. And then as time drifts on by and the answer doesn't seem to come we decide that there isn't really anyone up there looking out for us.

But the more I thought of that, the more I felt that it isn't really that the answers don't come it's more that we stop believing that an answer will come. Hence when it does, we just don't see it.

I've been blogging for 3 years now and have truly enjoyed all the challenges and prompts that I've taken part in. But always felt something missing. And then a few days ago it occurred to me that what I was missing was a spiritual prompt. Something that allowed me to make that connection with Spirit, to be involved in a like minded group where the interaction would lift me up.

Fiction doesn't do it for me. Now and then that's a fun write and read, but it just does not resonate with me. The real life stories of faith and love and hope are the stories I find inspirational and uplifting.

And so many weeks ago I sent a prayer up to Heaven. Told the Lord to find me a spiritual blogging group. Thanks Corinne (Everyday Gyaan) for leading me to the Five Minute Friday prompt.  A place where I hope I can tell the thoughts in my mind that are led from my soul.  Looking forward to linking up there.

Tell the Lord what you need, let it go and then He will find a way to bring it to you. Sometimes that occurs by chance, sometimes in an unexpected way, sometimes when you've forgotten you've asked. But the answers do come.

In the words of a Beatles song - There will be an answer, Let it be.

Gratitude List #40

Linking to Alphabet Salad's Gratitude Linkup #40

Be grateful for random acts of kindness



I meant to post this yesterday but got side tracked into other things and then had to call it a day as it got close to midnight. But will post my gratitude list for yesterday as well.

So many things to be grateful for yesterday revolving around buses:
  • A cheery bus driver with a smiling face and a happy greeting (and the driver today was sullen and impatient - I almost fell down he started the bus so quickly)
  • The bus arriving on time yesterday morning (the bus was 15 mins late today)
  • A random act of kindness - the bus driver waited for me to catch the bus home otherwise I would've had to wait another 1/2 hour at least in the dark. Not something I like doing. 

Some other things to be grateful for yesterday:
  • A very warm jacket on a very cold day
  • Lots of support from fellow bloggers
  • Blogspot forum where we can post questions 
  • Very grateful for the replies I got on my posted question 

And some things to be grateful for today:
  • Glad it wasn't raining when the fire alarm went off at work 
  • Glad my new water boiler got installed today - no more worrying if the water will suddenly turn cold in the middle of a shower
  • Glad the plumber fixed my shower as well though it wasn't part of the deal.

I am truly grateful for random acts of kindness.

UBC Jul 31 - Don't Quit Now

Ultimate Blogging Challenge  and  NaBloPoMo - Day 31

Don't quit now. Success may be just a step away.

Often success seems so far away that we think of quitting. But success may be just around the corner, just a step away. So don't quit.

And that's what I kept telling myself throughout this challenge. I'm glad I kept going even though it wasn't easy.

I picked a difficult theme - daily thoughts, because these had to be written each day not scheduled in advance. But though it was a grind, I did enjoy the theme.

So here I am Day 31. Yay!  Congratulations to all who made it to this day and thanks to everyone who dropped by and left a comment or just read my posts.

So when you set your sights on something, keep going, don't quit. You don't need to be the best, you just need to finish.

Enjoy your day.

Warm Regards
