Sunday School Blues

Where are the children

I have seen so many near.

But when the Sunday School bell rings

They are so very far.

If they’re here, they come with scowls

Or rolling eyes and tired minds

And boring is the Word of God

For their parents make it no priority.

So I sing the Sunday School Blues

For a community spiritually starving

For they have time for video games

But no time for their Creator.

Children more than anyone

Need the roots of God’s great Word

And parents need to bring them in

To study it and sing with friends

And Sunday will be bliss again.❤

Rocketing Through Space

Rocketing my journey through space over time.

The vessel carrying me needs constant service to continue

Constant reminders of maintenance parameters

Constant upkeep of life support for survival

And I rocket on toward Heaven, my destination.

The life support is Prayer and Bible reading.

And the rocket will get me to my goal on one condition:

I attend to its upkeep and heed the life support.

Pool Therapy

My children have been wanting time with me. Today was a clear day so my hubby took us to breakfast at IHOP and then I took the kids to the pool for some time together. We played, we enjoyed, we spent quality time. It has been too long since we have. We all needed it. And now I have happy kids again. And I am happy because I realized the important truth that I have to make time for my children, even if it is letting something else go. There are always a million things to do but I only have two children and one husband I am responsible for personally. God and then they come first. That is how it has to be. It is good. ❤

Tired Now

I started an exercise regiment for my kids now in school. This is because I started to notice more of them and it reminded me that they have my genes and will be prone to carry more with them. So, we are becoming healthier on purpose. And I realized that healthy takes a lot more energy and time. Lol So, in addition to a schedule busy with band gigs and church kids choir and landscape work, we are also doing school and extra healthy exercise and diet and stuff. So wow. And all these things happened in one day along with having to sight read a song for a wedding I was asked to play for with a cellist (practice was today). So that was fun. Everything in one day and I am exhausted. Literally exhausted. Doing a lot one day or a few days is a lot, but we are at a little more than a month of this pace now. Oy. Ready for a vacation. Figi, maybe? Hawaii? For now, I will say a prayer and go to sleep. Sweet dreams. Remember to make God your priority for He made you. Love you. Zzzzzzzz…❤

Feeling Blue

Today, as we had homeschool P.E. this morning and I coach and knew I in my old age would be exercising with young energetic kids for an hour and a half, used today as one of my 2 days off of walking 3.0-3.8 miles. The other is Sunday, so studying with kids keeps me focused on the Lord. But today, despite the celebration we put on for my daughter’s birthday, I fought feelings of blue. Why? And it just dawned on me as I put her to bed that I missed my intense alone time with God in the morning. I genuinely missed it. I missed Him. I wanted time with just Him. Time to just talk to and listen to Him, share life, worship, celebrate His creation, be strengthened, just be with Jesus and listen to His Holy Spirit. I was blue because I missed my Heavenly Daddy. So I am off to read His Words and talk to Him. May you do the same! Love you and wow, so does He!!❤❤❤

Staring Problem

When I was growing up, a “staring problem” was when someone was staring at you for no reason. The result was someone calling you out for it and whipping your tail if you didn’t knock it off. Everyone acceoted that as normal and those co sequences normal. It was just how it was. Nowadays, there are two new “staring problems” and I am calling them out. Not enough people are and not enough tail whipping is going on. 1. Too many surveillance cameras see too much and know too much. 2. People are staring at their tech and not living life or socializing nearly enough. I am calling it out. Both deserve a tail whipping because both are bad. These are not good things. We as individuals and as a society need to address these enormous and glaring “staring problems”.❤
