I am watching Planet Earth on Netflix and much of God’s amazing creation is also quite funny. God reveals an aspect of humor in His glory and I really love, appreciate and praise Him for it.❤❤❤
For science class today, we took a break from the boring classification system to watch An Arctic Tale, a really great documentary on the life cycle of a polar bear and walrus and other critters in the Arctic here and there. Beautiful scenery, great filming. And as we are watching, liberal global warming agenda garbage aside, it was very well done and we enjoyed it. The whole time I am watching these walruses, I am struck at God’s immense sense of humor. And I dare you to study walruses and not laugh. And penguins are right up there. I think God made birds who can’t fly but who swim beautifully just to mess with stupid evolutionists. It is hilarious. Anyway, just had to give God props today for making us laugh once again. I so totally live Him!! 😄❤
So, today, after the work and breakfast were over, and after catching up on house keeping (which my host mom used to call “domestic goddess duties”), I kidnapped my children to race over to the clubhouse and play pool. We made fun in the day. It could have been a long, cumbersome day. I could have just plowed through and accomplished everything. No, that is not what we did. That is not my legacy to my children. My kids will know that I balanced work and play, with equal fervor, while loving God out loud the whole while. And so we make fun happen. So important. Remember the fun. 😄❤
So our band has to sandwich a violinist soloist at a Christmas party. They called and want to use our PA, as they don’t have one and want extra speakers and to sound great and and dedicated sound man (for free of course) and everyone get their an hour earlier for them and a million things we don’t even have as professional musicians. They want to be “Headliners” and make a name for themselves. And this is a small Christmas party. And I laugh. Divas. Haughty. Demanding. My immediate thought was if they had such high demands, why not get their own PA and hire a soundman. And an agent and butler and cheuffeur and press secretary and so on. Laughing still. They are lucky they spoke to me after God calmed me down and filled me with peace and joy.
I thought of this and realized these clowns are a lot like us sometimes when we live our lives. We think of self-promotion , what we need, fight for our wants, demand things of God while doing our best to prove we are the most important thing in the universe. And God must just laugh at that level of irrational diva mentality and pride. He, Creator of everything we know and don’t even know. And here we are fleas with our little instruments instead of acknowledging God’s superiority and asking for help are like a diva toddler screaming “Treat me better! I am most important!” As if breathing and the choice of salvation and talents we have were not gift enough. Laughable. Pathetic. Silly. 😄❤
My mom has been texting all day (she prefers texts) with questions about preparing for Hurricane Irma. After about the fifth question, I asked her one… “Who was it that taught me faith and to trust God, who is way bigger and stronger than Irma?” She stopped texting questions. Lol ❤
I just saw this, ‘”What has God ever done for me?” asked a man breathing air.’ Bahahaha. I just thought that was hilarious.❤
The biggest reward for cleaning mom’s house and taking care of her, other than the satisfaction that is present, is that her clubhouse has a huge pool and other grandparents have kids that swim there. So there we stayed for hours of fun at the pool. We are a golden tan now and are exhausted but these are the memories you hang your hat on. These are new good tech-free moments with family that make you feel amazing and you remember as the good times for when things get rough. God gave us good memories there with Grandma/my mom and with her pool. Thank you, God!❤❤❤
