Spread the Love Friday – Embrace Your Blessings!

Blessed are those who believe without seeing.  John 20:29

Happy Friday!  It’s a glorious day in Florida.  I hope your world looks beautiful this morning.

I heard the song below by Francesca Battistelli on the radio this morning and I thought it was so fitting.  How many times does some little something happen that throws us off kilter? These little things can be blessings, or “stuff” that leaves our lives spinning out of control and drags us down.  The funny thing about it is, the choice is ours.  We can embrace the aggravation as blessings, or become upset and frustrated.

As you go through the day and these little things happen, I encourage you to embrace the blessings.  God bless you.



  1. Thank you so much for the post. I love this song because it really touches on the aggression and frustration that we have in life that could actually be God trying to bless us,

    However, if we get so caught up in our frustration, we will never see the blessing coming or we might miss the chance to be blessed.

  2. I have to pick a saint for confermation and I’m really freaking out. Everyone keeps trying to tell me to do this person or that person, but I have no clue what to do. My family is really religious. I’m really freaking out about this. I have no clue what to do. Please help me.

    1. Hi Sam. I’m so excited to hear about your confirmation. That’s awesome.
      Stop listening to everyone. Do a little research on the saints. Then, go somewhere quiet. Ask God to guide you. Then, be still and listen. You may need to sit quietly for 30 min. or more. You will know in your heart. I will pray too. Follow what you feel when you are away from everyone. Please let me know what happens. God bless you.

      1. Hi! I thought about it for a long time and I prayed like you said to. Samantha Emily Clare. I choose Saint Clare of Assisi. Her parents were wealthy nobles in 1193 in Assisi, Italy. She grew up learning how to read and write as well as learning needlework/sewing. She didn’t like the social life, she wanted to dedicate her life to God. She took food from her family’s table and took it to the poor. She’s caring and kind-hearted. She took refuge with Saint Francis of Assisi when her parents tried to make her marry a wealthy young man, but she refused. Her sister is Saint Agnes of Assisi. Agnes and her sister, Clare moved from place to place. Then eventually founded The Order of San Damiano, which 10 years after her death was renamed The Order of Saint Clare.
