A is for Adventure

A to Z blog hop at Patterings.

A is for Adventure. 

Today marks the first day of an adventure that a series of bloggers are working their way through together A-Z. Each week we’ll post something starting with a letter of the alphabet and proceed in sequential order. If you want to join in the fun, check out the blog hop below.

Our lives are filled with new adventures. Graduation, marriage, birth of a child, etc. So many moments that make up and fill our days. Our days overflow with a myriad of emotions, highs and lows, struggles and successes.

As you travel your path and begin a new adventure, don't forget to encourage someone along the way. Who has God placed in your path today for you to uplift and encourage?

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11

Great reminder about encouraging others, especially when they're going through those "not so great" adventures. Thanks for the post!

Thanks for the comment, Tom. Welcome. :)

I've been looking at this from a little different angle this year. I started saying/thinking, "Let's see what God is going to do with this."
It's been interesting and even less stressful when I do that.
Adventure--brings to mind danger to me. :)

Thanks, for stopping by Diana.

I love looking for those God moments He continually sprinkles throughout our days.


Patty Wysong said...

Adventure is a fun word! It makes me buckle up and hold on because although I love adventure, I'm a chicken at heart. LoL. Keeping our eyes open for others to encourage is a GREAT way to go along the journey! =]

So glad you're joining us, Jodie!

Thanks for stopping by, Patty. Thank you for starting us on this adventure. I can't wait to see where God takes us. :)

I love adventure, though the safe kind. Like a roller coaster, you buckle up and scream for 2 min then go sit on the sturdy bench with a funnel cake. A great reminder that the thrill isn't always about us.

Digging for Pearls said...

Welcome J'nell. I'm generally not an adventurous sort. :)

Thanks for stopping by.


Susan Craft said...

Hi. Great advice about encouraging others. I look at my writing that way too. If someone reads one of my novels, my prayer is that they will be lifted up and encouraged in some way.

I have a job that involves the unexpected happening. Not necessarily a pleasant adventure, but keeps me at the ready!

Sara Harricharan said...

What a fun take on this first letter. That is definitely right. The fun thing about adventures though, is that when you're actually looking for them, you find quite a few. Thanks for making me smile this afternoon.

Being on this "adventure" with Patty is almost as good as being in the van with Toby:) I love seeing the new blogs along the way. Great choice for the letter "A"

Sara and Nancy. :)

Nice reminder to be an encourager! Thanks for reminding me. I'm off to write an uplifting note or two!
