Which will it be?

I enjoy Instagram.  I enjoy the quick little reminders and updates from those who I am following. I especially love the many #hashtag combinations created!

Mostly because the hashtags remind me of the many road trips our family would take to visit family in New Jersey and the ‘license plate’ games my sister and I would play in the back-seat of the car. (How many States can you find? Double numbers? Double letters?) But I especially  found it to be so much fun deciphering the unique number/letter combinations that drivers would inscribe on their license-plates to create a message! Some seemed so perfect in description that you felt as if you were finding out a piece of information (from the inscription,) regarding who was contained within the vehicle!  While others simply left you giggling and wondering about the mystery behind the message.

I suppose both a #hash&license ‘tag’ could be compared to the tag-lines on our blog sites too!  Just a few little words to describe what you can expect to find at our sites.

Here at Hugs n’ Blessings (both) are Given Freely!

These tags, hashes, and license messages, in a way, leave you with clues to what is contained behind the photo, driver, message, & blog-writer.  And the added fun is sometimes the discovery of what these tags inspire in each of us!

Laughter? Motivation? Contemplation? Introspection? Discovery?

Today I saw an insightful Instagram post from Proverbs Daily that has left me pondering myself and categorizing others.  (Not in a judgmental way but rather in Awe, Wonder, and Recognition!)

And that’s when it hit me!!! What a great Weekend Thought to ponder:

Which of the following below would be TAG(s) for you??

  Successful People:

Read Every Day, Talk About Ideas, Compliment, Embrace Change, Forgive Others, Learn Constantly, Accept Responsibility for their Failures,They want Others to Succeed, They have a Sense of Gratitude.

Unsuccessful People:

Watch TV Every Day, Talk About People, Complain & Criticize, Fear Change, Hold Grudges, Are Know-It-Alls, Blame Others For Their Failures, Secretly Want Others to Fail, Have a Sense of Entitlement. 

(Are you pink or blue?)

Just like the #hashtags, tag lines, and license plate doodles,

I pray your noodle

has lots of fun

discovering (any) message behind the Weekend Thoughts

I leave you with today!

There will always be someone telling you, “No!”

“You cannot have it!”

“You will not do this!”

“I do not want you there!”

SO…what to do?

Boo-Hoo?

I say

PRAY.

(That:) “Yes” will win!

(That:) You “will receive

and achieve!”

NO MATTER WHO IS THERE

with you!

Dancing through my head…

You Make Me Brave!

I stand before You now
The greatness of your renown
I have heard of the majesty and wonder of you
King of Heaven, in humility, I bow

As Your love, in wave after wave
Crashes over me, crashes over me
For You are for us
You are not against us
Champion of Heaven
You made a way for all to enter in

I have heard You calling my name
I have heard the song of love that You sing
So I will let You draw me out beyond the shore
Into Your grace
Your graceYou make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the love that made a way

You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the promises you made
You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the promises you made.
