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.
Joy Comes even when you feel like you have lost it. The world, life, family, work, negative words can all steal joy, but only for a little bit. Joy comes in the moments, in the self worth, in the knowledge of who you are in Christ
Girls Day Out. It opens up the world of my kids. Its a way to see my kid’s world though their eyes. These days won’t always be there, so I am going to enjoy them while I can.
Family Strength, it can be like mild green tea, or strong like black tea. Both are good and can be great for the body. Families when loud or quiet help to make us who we are. The strength comes in getting through life together and gaining love.
Loud, But Quiet, the loud sure does help us appreciate the quiet. The quiet helps us appreciate the loud but only if the loud is covered in dog kisses and laughter from kids playing nearby. Enjoy the quiet as long as there is loud to follow
Why do we always feel that it’s go, go, go without changing our way of thinking? Changing our mindset is not an easy task but is well worth it. Find your reason, make taking care of yourself important and if your mindset is negative look for ways to change it
