Let My Words Be Few Thursday

Welcome!

HOPEannFAITH’s very first “Let My Words be Few” Thursday!

Please join us!

Leave me a link to your “Few Words” blog post; it can be about anything you want, but short and to the point! 

 I will link your post into my “Few Words” posts; and we can discuss and get to know one another. 

 I will  get a Mr. Linksy thingy, to make joining us easier for you. I will then need to learn how to use it. 😀

“Few Words” Thursdays is my attempt at concise and profound writing…where the content touches our Spirits and not just our minds and flesh. I hope this will improve my writing skill set while deepening my spiritual walk.

As I journey to Wholeness in 2011, I walk primarily with God and likeminded people. I want to live positively in an intentional manner.

I believe this is going to heal me physically, spiritually and mentally.

My word for 2011 is Wholeness…which I may have mentioned once or twice. 🙂 I just ordered my necklace from Linda Leonard Designs. I feel this necklace is an integral part of my Wholeness experience. I don’t know why…but it feels significant.

In this journey to Wholeness I find myself GRATEFUL today. Follow the link to the Webster’s definition of grateful, which I feel is lacking~one day maybe I’ll post a rant about the desication of the English language. What I did find interesting was at the end of the definition it lead me to the definition of Grace; I’m going to research that some more…

I find gratitude to me, the concept of being grateful is a deep humbling thankfulness; one I feel primarily when I am intimate with God, alone. While there are several individuals I am truly grateful to and for, God is by far the person who brings me to humility more than anyone else. I believe that is the way it should be.

But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the LORD.’” Jonah 2:9

Even when we are thankful, feeling humbled in reference to another person or circumstance, it remains my deep belief that that occurs because God has improved us or something in us; repaired or cured something in us; that no mortal physician can. I believe that pure gratitude is divinely inspired.

There is so much I am grateful for…so in an effort to keep this already wordy post short here are but a few things on todays Gratitude list:

I am Humbly Grateful to my Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus

Blessings Loves ♥

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. The word grateful means a lot to me.. It lives in my heart because I always find things to be grateful about. Each day I live I am grateful. We should be grateful for every little thing in our life because we will be bless more by God if we know how to appreciate even the simplest thing.

  2. Pastor Copeland,

    I am deeply grateful and encouraged that such a man of God took the time to read my humble blog and encourage this Christian with your graciousness.

    I am truly blessed, also, that the deep faith, that God and the most amazing spiritual parents have instilled in me has fostered a true gratefulness within me.

    Thank you again, Pastor.

    All my love and blessings,
    Andrea
