“Too Blessed To Be Stressed?”

These are gifts I won from author, Debora Coty, who has a series of books with the same title as above; Too Blessed To Be Stressed. 🙂 I have been following her blog/newsletter/BFF Club for a few years. I have also written a few reviews for some of her books and I am happy to brag on her a bit for this blog post. 🙂

I can’t remember how I came to love Debora Coty’s books. It may have been while I was “liking” and “following” another author or friend who posted something about her. At any rate, the very first words of her series with the same, “Too Blessed to Be Stressed“, caught my attention. Those words she wrote, how they captivated me and caused me to respond (to myself), “really? how can I live life too blessed to be stressed?”

So from there, I was hooked. I have read a few of her books and gave at least one to a friend who told me later, “she makes me laugh,” so I know her words make a difference in our lives (My friend had read, Too blessed To be Stressed for Moms & More Beauty Less Beast). Debora’s perspective urges me to take notice of those things in my life that are good, beautiful, a blessing to me, and positive. If I can keep my eyes on “Papa God” (Debora uses these words to describe God), I will be okay no mater what life seems to hand out.

Her words, “Too Blessed to be Stressed” is NOT a slogan for a tee shirt but, it is a way to live life so my emotions and attitudes do not become sinful. If you are looking for some encouraging words, I suggest you give Debora Coty a look. Between her cookbook, coloring book, and devotionals and calendar planners, something is bound to strike your fancy! I leave her social media information below for your convenience.

On another note, my blog posts may be a little sporadic in July due to me having knee surgery on the 6th. I am able to write a few articles in advance of that procedure so, maybe my friends and family won’t forget about me while I take a “break” to recover with my new knee. I will be praying for you and your family. I hope you can take time this summer to do those things you can’t get to in other seasons of the year. Or, take time to read a book. Do something fun! Have a refreshing summer! Keep your perspective up! 🙂

Refreshing

Greer City Park, Summer of 2019

One of the places I enjoyed visiting this summer was the local park where I live in Greer, SC. This is a place near where I live that offers me a lot of comfort when I visit here.

Taking a walk before the heat of the day was one of the many things I appreciate about our city park. The swings by the water fountain are another favorite spot in the park that I find relaxing and peaceful. I can often sit here among the birds, water, flowers, and sunshine and I will find myself immersed in writing a story, poem, or an article of some kind. The noise of nature is calming and peaceful to me. It is here that I find rest and I can talk more intimately with God. Soon, whatever troubles I am facing will often find an answer or a solution when I seek solace here.

What about you? Where do you go to find peace and contentment? Do you have a favorite spot in your community that really speaks Gods’ wisdom to you? Is there a verse of scripture that seems relevant to you in your special place? If so, please share it below. I would enjoy hearing from you.

When I spend time in my local park, I think of Psalm 23. These words are just as cleansing to my soul as the sounds of water is refreshing to my mind.

I hope you will take time today to enjoy something in your part of the world that brings your soul some care. This may be the greatest gift you can give yourself and one that offers your life renewal.
