I used to want to forget. I don’t anymore. Forgetting is not only futile but also time-consuming and distracting.
What should be the prayer and is now is not to forget but to minimize importance and impact and give God His due and proper first place in every thought, situation and action. Never forgotten but never ever again taking the place of God. That is the goal. And God has given me this. Praise God! It can be done. God is greater!❤❤❤
As amazing as you are, life is not just about you. You were created lovingly by God. Life is all about Him. God, the Creator, is what life is all about. What we do should agree with His design, be for Him, be according to His Bible/Words. Make it about Him and not you today. And God will bless you beautifully.❤
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.❤
Because if He isn’t today, one day soon you will be right.
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.
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. ❤
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…❤
