Hope for the Simple, but go into the world knowing that you can make a difference. Simple comes when you look for it, it can’t be forced. Jesus is simple.
Highlighting the Good. Why do went gravitate towards the negative, the bad, the gossip-worthy? When we focus on the good and find the peace and joy within us, people will notice and start asking, that is when we share the good with them and watch change
The Waiting can be stressful but it can also bring so much joy and peace. Wait for the creation, wait for the laughter, wait for the small little legs to catch up to you. When you chose to slow down and wait, there is happiness in that.
Finding Joy in the Simple. Staying in bed a little longer on a Saturday, listening to the laughter of kids playing, knowing that the work that is before you is not what rules your life as long as you are constantly looking to the finish line and Christ.
The Laughter coming from my kids is amazing. I love the times when they just let go and have fun. It is a balm for the soul and a jump start to a day. Laughter reminds you to chill out every once in a while, what a great thing!
Mud Bath Anyone? Sometimes you do things that are fun, sometimes you do things that get you out of your comfort zone so that you draw our kids out to do them with you. Family time is important, and when it can be fun and messy, why not?
Finally Back! It’s been a long four weeks of working late, sleeping less and worrying more. The parts that are missing? Praying more, having conversations with Jesus and trusting that His will will be done.
How Do They Know? It is a great thing when you have people who know you and can tell when you are off. It’s as if God knew that you needed the people you have and they need you too
It’s Fair Time! We are off to the fair. We will ride the rides, eat the food and enjoy being together. What is it about the fair? It’s about bringing together the community, and in this day and age, that is needed more than anything
