It is so much easier to focus on what we lack than what we have. But a true heart of Thanksgiving will help us to count our blessings and be a blessing. In reality nothing is really owed to us. For our very breath is truly a gift from above! Everyday can be a new opportunity to Do Good. Remember that there are always new inventions that are just waiting to be discovered. Perhaps you can be the change agent that the world needs today!

         ~ GRATITUDE~

Gratitude is my new Attitude,
That is lifting me to a higher altitude.

Gratitude opens up my heart, 

For Praise and Thanksgiving.

Gratitude gives me a greater appreciation,

For the blessed life that I am living.

Living the GOOD LIFE is not about status. It is not about chasing after money, and it is not even all about you. It is about LOVING GOD and LOVING PEOPLE!
This scripture gives us God’s simple Recipe for LIVING THE GOOD LIFE! “Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing. Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, Here’s what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful; Snub evil and cultivate good; run after peace for all you’re worth. God looks on all this with approval, listening and responding well to what he’s asked; But he turns his back on those who do evil things.” 1 Peter 3:8-12 MSG

Move On With Your Life.

So often we are waiting on our abusers to come back and say ” I was wrong or I am sorry.” Unfortunately our abusers DO NOT REMEMBER. They are suffering from AMNESIA! But God has not forgotten. He is keeping the books and His account is always accurate. Ultimately He will right every wrong! But don’t spend your precious time waiting for justice. GO ON with your LIFE. TRUST GOD, continue to DO GOOD and FORGIVE!

   Make this your prayer today……  

      ~I Have Faith~

I have Faith in a God that I cannot see, 
I have Faith that all things will work out for me.

I have Faith to believe that He will right every wrong,

I have Faith to believe that He will keep me strong.

I have Faith to believe Christ is coming again,

And that in His reign and His kingdom there will be no end.

I have Faith to believe that his Word is enough,

And that in spite of the challenges;

I am a child that He loves!

God Bless America.

The words of the American Constitution are beautiful when read in it’s unvarnished state. “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness-”

🇺🇸Let us not change the interpretation.

🇺🇸Let us honor the founders who drafted the Declaration of Independence.

🇺🇸Let us endeavor to love one another.

🇺🇸Let us use our freedom not to harm, but for the good of society.

🇺🇸Let us pledge to honor and preserve freedom and true Liberty for all people.

Happy Fourth. #AndMayTheTrueForceBeWithYou!

Everyday of our lives we are sowing seeds that will eventually grow up and reap a harvest. It is that old principle called sowing and reaping! That principle will work for the good as well as the bad. Interestingly, we are daily speaking negative words and entertaining evil deeds without ever considering their impact.

The only way that we can ever ensure a good crop is to always speak life and sow seeds of GOODNESS. The GREATEST seed that we can ever sow to mankind is the seed of LOVE! For when we choose the path of love, hate looses its power. 

As we approach this thanksgiving season let us plant the seed of love. We may not always agree with one another, but we can always choose to follow heaven’s simple command which is to love one another. 


When we treasure our diversity,

We see a beautiful work of tapestry.

When we value each others diversity,

We are celebrating all of humanity.

Lay Aside The Weights.

Some weights that you are carrying are not of your own making. They were picked up because of your desire to show compassion and do good. Unfortunately, the beneficiaries of your kindness have moved on to higher grounds. And yes, they are oblivious to the fact that they have left you with scars and wounds that only your Creator can heal. The end result is they have tripped you up and hindered you from running your life race. 
Jesus is the only one I know who successfully ran His race with the weight of the world upon His shoulders and rose up victoriously! His word of advice for today is “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin. Hebrews 12:1-4 NLT

Jesus is not insensitive to your pain. He is your burden bearer. However, He is saying loud and clear that it is time to lay aside the weights and move forward.

Moving forward means:

*Forgiving yourself for been deceived.
*Forgiving those who have wounded you.

*Asking God to restore your soul and put you back on his original path and timetable.

It also means:

*Watching your associations.

*Detoxing your mindset & thoughts patterns.

*Watching over your conversations and making positive confessions. 

*Getting a heavenly perspective of your circumstances.

*But above all, it means making a decision to stop bleeding over the bygone years.

*It is time to tell your betrayers, “You Tried To Sting Me, but I didn’t feel that!

Day # 51 : Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

Today I am Counting It All Joy because I can use my power to do GOOD.

I choose to do right instead of wrong. I choose to pursue peace instead of war. But above all I choose to show LOVE instead of HATE. For every time I choose the path of LOVE, HATE loses its power!


       ~Seeds of Goodness~

Let us plant seeds of goodness,

And watch as they grow;

For they’ll soon spring up before you know.

Let us start out with love for everyone,

Never counting the score for the wrongs they have done.

Let us add in an element of joy,

Instead of a desire to hurt and destroy .

Let us offer up peace instead of war,

In the midst of life’s conflicts and uproar.

Let us exercise patience through the storm,

Always seeking to lend an extended arm.

Day # 47: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

Not everything that has happened in my life can be call good! But I serve a GOOD GOD! And I am convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that He is for me and never against me. God is the Creator of every good and perfect gift. Nature testifies to the very fact that He is real. Every time I look at the moon and the stars I marvel at His creation and His existence. I marvel because He is all KNOWING He is all POWERFUL and His Spirit is PRESENT in all places and at all times. 

Today, I am Counting It All Joy because God is for me and He is with me where ever I go.

Day # 17: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.

I can Count It All Joy because God has blessed us to be a blessing.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 NKJV
We were created to do good works, but never in our own strength and ability. For every good and perfect gift comes down from the Greater One above! Daily He blesses us with gifts that we have not earned and do not deserve. However, when we work together our gifts can compliment one another and work for the good of Society. Count It All Joy Inspirational Products LLC is grateful to be in collaboration with a great artist Tim Licitra who has helped to design the ‘Sassy Bee Quiet Sign’ to raise awareness and promote a healing environment at Crouse Hospital.

Day # 5: Of 100 Days Of Counting It All Joy.



I will count it all joy because His Book is my instruction manual for everyday living! 



    📖 ~The Good Book~📖

There are more LiKeS for the Good Book,

Than I have ever seen on Facebook.

There are more NuGGeTs of truth,

Than I have ever seen on Twitter.

There is more PoWeR on the written pages,

To make me grow and get better.

There is more HelP from the Throne,

Than I’ve ever gotten from the phone.

There is an AssuRancE from the Good shepherd ,

That I am truly one of His own!
