Fall Festival Invitations Aplenty

We had five invitations to church fall festivals- three on one night, happened to be tonight. So we went to two tonight, which were timed to be one after the other, missing one. The other two are coming up. And here, we had decided not to do anything for Holloween. I am not judging, just it is our personal decision. My daughter was sad that she wouldn’t get candy (really all she cared about the holiday). And we were bombarded with all these personal invitations to church fall events and oh wow the amount of candy. Tell me God does not have a sense of humor. I am just amazed at how God attends to the details of our lives. He is so good!😄❤

A Little Fun

Just wanted to throw a bit of fun your way. My son and I are silly and it is rarely captured. My daughter I catch all the time but rarely are we caught but here is a treat… we are silly. Sometimes lightening the mood lights the load. God created laughter after all. So being fun honors Him. ❤

On the Lighter Side

Yesterday morning, I woke early to attend a ladies’ missionary meeting. I was tired, hurrying half awake to get me and my daughter there. We got there and spent the day and came home and I realized it. I wore my dress backwards all day. Not one sweet lady said a word to me about it. I was too tired to notice. But bahahaha! This made me so happy. Love it!😄😂❤

Strawberry Festival!!

Sometimes, ya just gotta celebrate and go to a strawberry festival. Tensions high at home? Need a break? Have too much extra money sitting around? Lol Hey, just stop what you are doing and go to a strawberry festival. A few hours on rides and in sun with fun and you’ll be right as rain. 😄❤

Griping Spirits

The longer I live and the closer I get to the Lord, the more sins He exposes in me so I can get them cleaned up and right/forgiven/confess/repent before I face Him in eternity. It is very kind of Him to show me the error of my ways. And it is humbling. For that I am thankful and truly feel loved. But I wanted to share in case anyone else needs help seeing it in themselves.

I always thought of myself as funny- don’t judge me lol. I also am thr most positive and optimistic person I know. However, in all my “funny”, I have a strong tendency to sarcasm, which is a disguised spirit of griping. Think about it. I have made almost a science of pointing out what was wrong in a flippant but real way and having fun at their expense. I have been a griper. “Venting” is another area I have been guilty of griping and criticising. And I was convicted how guilty I was. And I read in the Bible that God hates this practice. In fact, He had the ground swallow a good chunk of Israelites who were grumbling in the desert after being rescued from slavery in Egypt. That tells me grumbling is sin and is hated by God. And this makes sense because it is the opposite of thankfulness and praise.

So, I have had a major re-adjustment, yet another come to Jesus moment. And I am now working aggressively on a spirit of appreciation and praise, an obedience God will love in me, an act of worship to the precious God who made and saved me. And I am so very thankful to grow and change and see another fault within me to work on for God’s glory. Praise God!!!❤❤❤
