This is my second week for my new word of the week post. I will be selecting a new word to celebrate each week. If you choose to write about the word of the week on your blog, please let me know. I have really enjoyed reading the posts that you have written, so keep up the good work.
This week's word is ~Faith~. So many different thoughts come to my mind when I think of the word Faith. My grandma always taught me that we should have Faith the size of a mustard seed, and I always try to remember that. This is one of my favorite quotes about Faith.
"Faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to."
There is a lot of truth in that quote. We all have Faith in many different things. We have Faith that the sun will come up tomorrow. We have Faith that the spring will come again. We have Faith that we will wake up tomorrow. We have Faith that we will return home after work. We have Faith that we will live to see our children and grandchildren grow up. These are the things that we usually take for granted. They are what I think of as "easy Faiths".
We should also have Faith in the "hard Faiths". We should have Faith that God will heal us when we are sick or someone we love is sick. We should have Faith that God will heal our broken hearts or spirits. We should have Faith that there will be peace on earth one day. We should have Faith that there will be an end to world hunger. We should have Faith that the evil in people will be overcome by the good in them. These are all things that we should pray for and try our best to assist in them coming true.
This is the picture I selected to go with the word Faith:
I hope that it reminds you that even though we are muddling through winter, spring will come again. That is so true of life. You may be experiencing a cold winter in your life right now. With Faith in God and the love of family and friends you will soon be experiencing spring again. Just keep going and things will get better soon.
I am also celebrating my one year blogiversary. I cannot believe that I have been blogging for a year. To read my first post, click ~Here~.
I really never thought anyone would read my blog and I have been blown away by the positive response and the many words of encouragement that you all have sent my way. You have accepted me and made me feel important and worthwhile. I can never thank you enough for that. I have met so many people that I would have never known had it not been for blogland. People who I consider friends even though we have never met in person. To celebrate my blogiversary, I will be having a giveaway some time this week. So keep checking back so you can enter.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will continue to come back as often as you can. Always remember, "Love is an act of Faith, and whoever is of little Faith is also of little love."
All My Best,
