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!😄😂❤
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. 😄❤
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!!!❤❤❤
Helium. Helium is on the lighter side. And thank God for what it does to people’s voices. Also, God is still, now, and always forever in control. Praise God!!!❤❤❤
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. ❤
