My daughter and I studied bats today in science class. And I have to tell you, I have a new appreciation of God’s sense of humor. Bats are a hoot. They look funny, act strangely, sleep weird and do a great deal of good (mostly) at the same time. Bats are a riot. They are really funny. I think that a lot in studying animals. God’s sense of humor and His creative mastery cannot be ignored. People too, but you will appreciate these if you study things closely. Even a simple wild flower, if you look closely at it, will fill you with awe at its Maker, and bats as well as many other creatures and the wacky dance of the ostrich will certainly make you laugh and celebrate God’s sense of humor. He rocks!❤❤❤
So, I made this triple layer strawberry cake for my daughter’s birthday party. And as I was assembling it, my mind was drawn to the silly cooking show where amateurs try to copy professional bakers called “Nailed It”. They say that even if it looks like it was hit by a bus.
Cue my funny laugh of the day. I was struggling with homemade frosting and it was a gooey mess and I was frustrated and just yelled out “Nailed It!” And my kids bust out laughing and I was laughing. It looks crazy, but it should taste good. Or I just hope the thought counts either way. Lol😄❤
So after the 3 1/2 hour wait for my tires to get patched up, I had a quick bite and the kids and I headed to skate. And this was crazy. Evidently, there were a couple of birthdays there and many, many kids were lured into a skating rink that God had never blessed with the opportunity to do so. And there were so many! And the skate place had the brilliant idea to now make “skate buddies”, training wheel triangle – shaped helpers that they make more money on than the entrance or rentals. And these things take up a lot of space and have no control. Brilliant money maker for them but deadly for us trained skaters. So there were about 15 of these out at a given time going helter- skelter, every which way. Insane!
But we managed to have good time but I am exhausted…. not from skating but from dodging not to kill anyone or fall. Lol. So skating was crazy tonight but still fun. And way better than sitting at home. ❤
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. 😄❤
