Positive Thoughts Button...

I am a strong believer of positivity! This post is a place for people to come and leave uplifting, positive thoughts! I feel it is so important to bring out the good in others and to spread love by being positive! Please leave your positive thoughts, uplifting quotes, scriptures, or share anything positive! When I designed and made this button I never dreamed it would be such a blessing to not only me but everyone that comes here to visit!

Bless you all for your friendship and love! ♥ HUGS ♥


Looking forward to reading your positive thoughts :)

I LOVE it! Who can't use some positive encouraging words, right. Excellent idea.

Cheryl said...

Oh goodie, I get to be one of the first to try the positive button.

I have this scripture on my facebook because it just speaks hope, love and peace.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (NIV)

One of the things I love about blogging is that I can focus on the positive...and not be critical like I naturally can be.

Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future."

Annette W. said...

And though I love all the giveaways, I appreciate Seeking Sisterhood the most...because it is exactly what I am doing!

Much better idea than the "easy" button - we could all use more positivity in our lives!!!

Here's a great saying that I try to remember when things aren't going well.

I guess my strength comes from just having FAITH that God's promises are sure...so,

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help"

with health issues i know there is not a timeline to that promise, so day to day living and faith that it WILL come keeps me going, AND positive!

thanks so much for this Shauna! Love this!

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

What an Awesome idea! You have the best blogs hands down!

The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the HEART!
Have a HAPPY Day!

Beth at Aunties said...

I LOVE this idea. Wouldn't you know YOU would be the one to come up with it!~♥

"No matter what circumstances you sisters experience, your influence can be marvelously far-reaching. I believe some of you have a tendency to underestimate your profound capacity for blessing the lives of others. More often than not, it is not on the stage with some public pronouncement but in your example of righteousness and the countless gentle acts of love and kindness done so willingly, so often on a one-to-one basis."
--James E. Faust

Shauna, Thank YOU for being YOU and all of your countless gentle acts of love:)

Beth at Aunties said...

May I also put this idea on my blog and spread the joy if beautiful inspiration?

"Our task is to become our best selves. One of God's greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final."

Darla said...

I am thankful for so many Blessings in life that are many times taken for granted...my God, husband, kids, house, food, ability to work and pay bills, freedom to be free in this country, having a computer, electricity, water, cars to drive, schools, music, washing machine and dryer, immediate and extended family still living, a brain and a memory, a voice, my eyesight, mobility, hearing, and so much more that is not guaranteed in life, but that we all take for granted each day.

Smile at a stranger today - it will make 2 people feel better.

Bethany said...

This is really common, but still good:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

courage to change the things I can,

and the wisdom to know the difference.

Cheryl said...

You know, this morning I woke up able to see, able to talk, able to hear, able to breathe, able to hug my children and be with my soul mate (husband) in the warm sunshine.....I give all my thanks to God, whom made all that possible. And when we are ankle deep in the snow tomorrow (winter storm coming), I am going to praise Him because I know He will bring the sun back!

mandala said...

I just had a cancer scare recently and for 2 months had been going through tests (painful) and the stress of it all. What sustained me is really thinking of how everything has a purpose and that there is something to be learned from what I was going through. I was at peace and positive that things will work out. Last Monday, cancer was RULED OUT. I believe that faith, hope and positivity really makes a huge difference in people's lives!

Whenever I'm feeling down, my little dachshund Nelson senses it...and climbs onto my lap to give me sweet puppy kisses. Talk about adding a bit of positivity to my day!

Cheryl said...

I just hatched out a bunch of baby chicks. There is nothing sweeter than fluffy baby chicks jumping into your hands and snuggling their heads between your fingers. I love God's creation. So much love and cuteness.

Mandala, that is such great news! Your right, we put our faith & hope in the Lord, and it will not return void. God bless you!

SO TRUE...our youth needs to hear this, they are so pressured these days to be good, athletic, beautiful, intelligent...it is hard for them to see what they have to offer others. It is in GIVING that we receive!

Hi everyone! I found a really GREAT thought today online. Simple but true!

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
- Albert Einstein


I get stuck in the first one sometimes, and take things for granted. I wish I could live everyday with the second thought! It takes training I think...

If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay--Quickly turn it upside down and SMILE that frown away!! No one likes a frowny face change it for a SMILE, make the world a better place by smiling all the while :)

SMILE!!

Terri said...

I hate to say it but thinking positive didn't stop my alternator from dying on me today. :-P And when they tried to replace it, a bolt/belt had to be replaced, too, adding another $100 to the bill. Blah! Still trying to be upbeat, though. At least the 10-year-old heap still runs!!

THIS one surprised me...I was looking for something regarding personal growth and found this quote by KIRK DOUGLAS (just this week)

" Obey the voice within - it commands us to give of ourselves and help others. As long as we have the capacity to give, we are alive."

I think I shut off too much...I think I have nothing to offer because I am thinking BIG...but really I think most things grow by taking smaller steps!

thanks!

As I sat in a fast and testimony meeting in Colorado this weekend with 3 of our children, their spouses and 10 of our precious grandchildren, the thought kept coming to me, 'Where much is given much is expected'.
One of those is having a heart of gratitude! As women being so blessed by so many of the Lord's blessings both small and large I am so full of gratitude for ALL things. Even those hard things which teach and help us to grow and become stronger and closer to HIM.

Whether I believe in John Edward (the psychic) or not, I was moved by one simple thing he said directly after 9-11.

I continue to love this button! Here's my positive thought for the day: Yesterday, my son (who is mildly Autistic) said "bye bye mom" to me yesterday as I left for the doctor. It's the first time he's ever called me mom with meaning!!!

Just reading backwards a bit...have been off a couple days...
Yeah Sarah O...that is SO cool
and so glad about your dog Sodahoney! (our dogs are so much angels in our lives...I almost lost mine on my birthday a year and half ago...and she has been by my side every day since. I know it was her purpose to be my friend through a rough time. I hope yours is doing well!)

My positive thought:

Have a good day everyone!
