Laziness is a Waste of Good Brain Cells

Good stewardship is a concept I have been working on in my life and trying to instill in my kids. The opposite of good stewardship is laziness. It wastes talent, thought processes, imagination, physical ability, energy, so on. Laziness declares that our comfort is more important than the gifts God has given us to use. And no, laziness is never a gift from God. It is an affront to Him who gifted us in His profound wisdom. πŸ˜„β€

Just My Daughter & Me

Since the weather did not cooperate with her swimming idea, we went to the movies and saw Aladdin. It was such an enjoyable movie, better than the cartoon, in my opinion. So good. And on the way home we stopped for ice cream. We have needed this time together, just us. She has been making bad decisions lately and so I am determined to spend more dedicated time with her and guide her better. She is searching for how to act better in a more developed body and hormones are going crazy. So, as parents, our role is as guide and leader, present to do so. Punishment rarely works without proper loving guidance and leadership applied. So we cleaned the house and clothes together the last two days and today vacation to the movies. We had a great time and we will continue moving forward together. Praise God!πŸ˜„β€

Today, Like Yesterday, is a Gift from God for a Reason

Each day is an opportunity to prove that you love God most. Each and every day is a gift from God for us to grow closer to Him. Each and every day is a gift to encourage someone else or plant a seed for their salvation. Each and every day is a glorious gift to pray more and read the Bible. Each and every day is a precious gift of another opportunity to worship God. We need to remember what we are here for and realize how precious of a gift each day is. The gift of today is amazing. Lift up your eyes and chin and make the most of this gift of today. πŸ˜„β€

Every Day is a Gift

Today, God has again given you the gift of life so that you may share it with Him. So great is His love for you that He blesses and sustains you and drops down diamonds from heaven throughout your day. All we have to do is lift our eyes to Him, accept and love Him back. What a gift your life is!πŸ˜„β€

Generosity

You cannot be like Christ unless you are generous. He was generous with everything, even His very life and every comfort. We come into this world with nothing and leave with nothing but every time we are generous to others, we accumulate riches in heaven where we will be for eternity whereas this life is ever so brief.❀

A Day at a Resort

Well, God knew I needed rest much more than I needed to get caught up on homework and housework. So, God provided for this little girl of His yet again and blessed me with a phone call resulting in a day at a resort. No, not the whole day, but several sorely needed hours of rest by a pool catching up with my spiritual parents. The kids and I packed up our suits and drove to Celebration to spend the day relaxing with them and basking in their peace and encouragement. What a day! We got back dehydrated and physically drained but uplifted and encouraged with peace and joy at the exact same time. How beautiful are the blessings of the Lord! I am overwhelmed with luxury of having such a loving God that meets my needs and even blessing me with comfort. Yes, I work very hard, but God always rewards me with more than I started with. Praise Yahweh!❀❀❀

Rest Granted

The Lord granted me rest today when I needed it. The baby was not able to come over today after PE, as the car seat was “accidentally” not left for him. This was unexpected and granted me rest. I could spend time with my kids and husband, teach school, catch up on laundry, do the dishes, prepare for band practice, etc. It was wonderful, as this week is the busiest week of our lives so far this year. Crazy busy and I was feeling overwhelmed and a bit guilty for being behind in my care of my family. So God gives me this gift of time. It was amazing, and the whole time I was at perfect peace and joy. Wow! What a gift! God is so very good!πŸ˜„β€β€β€
