8 Beautiful Traits: The Beatitudes

Count your blessings

We should always count our blessings. And the Beatitudes that Jesus taught us from His Sermon on the Mount are 8 beautiful blessings we can count (on) every day. Download my free eBook (value $14.99) - 8 Beautiful Beatitudes: Blessings for Blessings - about how to be blessed in the middle of life's circumstances. It's only 44 pages long - 38 pages of reading. I think you'll find it to be very soothing and calming and will bring peace to your daily living. After you read it, come back and let's have a discussion and Q&A in the comments section below.

Writing this book has helped me through a hard time in my life, and I hope it helps you and others you know as you practice these traits that Jesus taught us here. And as with all of my other books and blog posts, I love sharing my journeys that may bless you in some way.

Some quotes from Beautiful Beatitudes: Blessings for Blessings:

We learn tender lessons in the valleys and in the wilderness.

And what we learn from those difficult times are more precious than diamonds, which by the way, ... undergo between 1 billion and 3.3 billion years of pressure to become a strong, beautiful gemstone.

I also like to think of the Holy Spirit as my internal Housekeeper. As soon as He moves in, He starts to slowly move out clutter such as anger, unforgiveness, self-centeredness, bad thoughts and starts replacing them with kindness, self-control, self-sacrifice, forgiveness.

We’re developing a pattern and mindset of becoming humble before the Lord so that His will is done and He is honored and glorified.

A pure heart will be childlike, not childish. We should love with no strings attached, trust God in all our circumstances, be eager to help others without expecting anything in return, or bragging about the good deeds we do.

The person (or people) you plant that seed in may eventually learn the value of peace. You can merely plant the seed, but you can’t accept peace for them.

For many, the world is a hard place to live in, and as Christians, it is our duty to make sure we are the light for those who are living in the dark.

The end goal should always be to lead a lost or hurting soul to salvation or acceptable transformation in the way they live.

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite side dishes to make with a meal is mashed potatoes. One day, a couple of months ago when life was very busy, I just happened to notice these Idahoan  brand instant mashed potatoes with 4 servings in a grocery aisle I was going through. They had a variety of flavors, so I bought several pouches. I wondered if the dried potato flakes could be as tasty as the flavors indicated. And yes, they are to my surprise. I am very impressed. On days when I'm running behind, it's 5:00, dinner should already be served, and I'm not going to be able to start dinner for a while yet, AND mashed potatoes are planned for that meal, this will do quite nicely. Fewer dishes are involved, and it's quick. They are pretty thick, but they don't feel heavy while you're eating them. Very creamy actually.  All you need to do is: Boil 2 cups of water. Pour the boiled water into a heat-proof bowl. Pour in the dried potato flakes.  Stir with a fork until you get a thick, mashe
