I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety or fear try to call me, they keep getting a busy signal – and soon they’ll forget my number.

      No wonder it’s all good stuff that comes out from you Ann! And the best thing is the more you share, the more minds and hearts you are filling with good stuff. And the cycle goes on and on…
      Thanks Ann of Great Cables :)

    Hmmmm… have you ever noticed how when your brain is occupied with thoughts of blog writing, commenting, and prayers for fellow travelers, it’s harder for the bad stuff to get in?

    Good wisdom… works for me. :)

  10. Debbie Says:

    Oh I like this! Let’s tie up those phone lines with the good stuff. :) Thank you for always giving us something wonderful to think about!

    I love that we CAN do something positive about keeping those pesky doubts, anxieties and fears at bay…. Good thinking Edith Armstrong! Bended Spoon thank you for continuing to pave a path of positivity!


  12. This is an awesome quote! It reminds me of the saying, “Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered, and there was nobody there.” Isn’t it wonderful when fear and anxiety forget our number altogether? Peace, Linda

    What an awesome quote! Thanks so much for sharing, ‘spoon’! Have a special day!


  14. I like how this is pack with humour and wisdom.


  15. This is so true. It reminds me of this:

    “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8

    Sometimes our mind gets blocked, and it is almost impossible to do that, but even then we are loved and safe even when we can’t feel it. I just love your posts.

      Glad that you shared the verse in here Theresa. The greatest thoughts and truth are still found in the Bible. And thank you for the assurance that we are loved and safe regardless of how we feel. Praying that our minds and hearts are always open to this truth!
      :)
