I Joy Dare You

Stop: My Five Minute Friday prompt Can be found here :

Having a day off I was left a little lazy. The Joy Dare is to give 3 gifts. Though It may not seem a stretch for most people I only hope that  in some way I bright up someone day'.
Today: I posted a love quote on my Instagram feed : “If God is the DJ, then Life is the dance floor, Love is the rhythm, &You are the Music” ~unknown  I thought this was an awesome quote for two people that loved each other to share. I hope , It worked. ( If not, I have a lot of new spam followers now:/ )

Also, I treated myself to little me time. So, my gift could be , oddly is being conscious of others. By, not putting my worries of woes on them. And it worked. Making another family better happy is a big gift.

My, third gift is I introduce an artist I have been following for some time. Nidhi Chanani. I find her art enjoyable and it always seems to put a smile on my face. I hope it will do the same for someone else. And perhaps, give her  some recognition as well. To see what I mean, please go to my link above to see her work.

Well, That’s it until tomorrow which starts a new month. So, I’am looking forward to some new dares :) If you’d like to join us please go to, Ann Voskamp site Holy Experience:

Bluer than Hue

3 gifts of blue , was today's Joy Dare .  So, I immediately thought of the sky. I think of it often as a gift or a blessing. It’s  something that I ‘am thankful for always. Because, a blue sky reminds me of some calm for a few moments, maybe hours. Especially after, a stormy day. Which makes it also a sign of  hope of some peaceful and pleasant weather or times.  It’s because of this that the sky will of course, be my number 1 gift.

My Second is something fun and it was given to me by my sister in law. Who is an awesome person. If she were blue she’d be the second gift. However, the nail lacquer, she gave me. It's  powder blue as depicted above in the bow.

My third are boys. I’am so very happy God made them. They make the best big bothers. I know this because I have two. They can become wonderful fathers. I know this too. as I was a daddy girl. And my bother’s are pretty great dads. So, my nieces and nephew say. I must agree, That boys are pretty awesome because of this and Jesus was once a boy, you can have a better bother than him.. :)))))

So, everyone please have a great evening and until tomorrow's next Joy dare. Also, if you’d like join in than follow this link: and find out why were counting out blessings.

I can handle the truth

013picture of me and my Best Friend. why , did we use pump it’s that way. So, sorry everyone you have to see our foreheads like this. S.M.H.
Todays, Joy Dare was to find a gift as thus:
8 a.m.   I have to say, my gift at 8 went like this Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz and I enjoyed it until 11ish a.m.
12 p.m.  My first cup of coffee , before getting ready for work
8 p.m.  The short version is I called my best friend. Because , a situation occurred while at work. and  I needed to talk. I usually would complain to a co-worker . But, I called my B.F. who was at her job as well. I  explained the situation to her. Where, she than told me it’s happen to her before. She also told me, when it happen she went to her bible app and it happen to be on the subject we were talking about. Reading it calmed her down and having an encouraging conversation with her big sister, helped as well.
As for me, knowing God works thru people, like her sister.  All, I needed at the moment was to hear  her sisterly voice . A big laugh and that I had the perfect 8p.m. gift, even though it was 7:26 p.m.
Thank You God, for my B.F. who also believes in Lord. But, she will tell me Truth about everything bad or good.  And yes! A pun is intended Because, she cares to make her friend (me) sister, sons, husband better. Love ya! Yasmin and Thank you.
I love finding and helping to create Joy Dares. If you’d like join and find out what tomorrows will be go here :  A Holy Experience . Where Ann Voskamp,  the author of the book One Thousand Gifts . Will explain everything to you on her personal journal. 
Hello Everyone, It’s me Leah Jlyn. I  will use this blog to post most of my Joy Dares  here.  Well, basically  I need a space where I can Glorify Our Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I will not preach to anyone about anything that’s not inviting.
In fact, I want be preaching at all. I’am just so very proud of who I’am , which is a Christian. To better understand , I’am what my Father in Heaven is. Which, means I can’t judge my bother’s and sisters. ( though I want to sometimes). (Bothers and sisters is a universal word for everyone!)  For wHo they are and who they choose to be with. I also, can’t  and should never judge anyone for their beliefs.
Yes!I still believe and welcome everyone to read and take part of anything I’am involved in. Because,  a big part of my  creativity happen because of Positive people. I saw how proud they were for what they believed, that I wanted to show what I was proud of.
And also, every person that has supported me has had a different belief. Rather, They have been wiccans, into white magic. Maybe a goddess, who loves being an up lifting momma for others. Or a tragic poet who see no hope, but in the writing about it.  All these, and many more have supported me. And I won’t stop supporting their creative endeavors.
So, with that said. That’s why , I created this blog. So, might not  offend anyone  and for those who follow the same footprints in the sand I do. However, I will be doing Five Minute Fridays on Writer In Progress. . Hence, it’s name and it’s a writing prompt. Not, hiding God, just giving him his own place :) Blessings Everybody
