Pairing Change and Growth with Thoughts and Actions

Pairing Change and Growth with Thoughts and Actions

  ~~ Change and Growth ~~ –> Thoughts and Actions <–     I’m browsing past posts  and selecting some that seem relevant to share again as we enter the first month of this new year.

Changing and Growing, and Connecting Thoughts with Actions

Changing and Growing, and Connecting Thoughts with Actions

  ~~ Change and Growth ~~ –> Thoughts and Actions <–     I am thankful when change leads to growth! It‘s not always pleasant–think “growing pains”–but ultimately, growth is better than NO growth!

Declare your faith with actions AND words. It’s important for us to honor our word so people can trust us and know we are reliable. However, we also need to back up our words with action. Just as we discussed in my recent “take action” post, intentions and words come up empty if we don’t support them with appropriate actions to reinforce those intentions and words.       So onto today’s inspirational thought… “As Christians, it is important to…

Do What You Can Do to Clean Up Messes – February 23 Inspiration

Do What You Can Do to Clean Up Messes – February 23 Inspiration

Do what you CAN do to clean up messes. Nothing gets done unless we take action. Obviously we need to first create a plan and intend to carry out the plan, but only action will ensure the plan is fulfilled. It would be like setting out all the ingredients for a batch of cookies, intending to make them, and then just standing there looking at the collection of ingredients and the recipe. No fresh baked cookies will materialize without following…
