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.

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:

New Elderly Tips

I have added some elderly tips  to my Senior Care Memoirs website. We all have a senior in our family, such as a parent or grandparent. Or we see elderly people while we're shopping. They deserve to feel respected and independent. So, I have added these new tips as some helpful advice. Watch for posts to be added to the Senior Care Memoirs site more frequently as new stages evolve in my senior family members' lives.  I hope you enjoy these tips and other upcoming posts. Together, we can figure this out. We're going to fill our blank canvas with helpful information. I won't be posting any future updates to the other site here, so you will want to bookmark it if you're interested in reading this type of information. Thanks for stopping by today.
