God makes such beautiful days! Remember to thank Him for it and keep talking to Him all through your day. ❤
Today is gorgeous! As I walked in the cool, brisk, fresh air, the birds were singing happy songs, the trees were standing strong, the sun was coming up regally, the flowers bloomed valiantly. God made us a gorgeous day. Enjoy it and remember to thank Him for it. 😄❤
So pleased to stay home all day today!
A day off makes the heart all glad
And blissful car washing and play
We cleaned and rested, watched a movie.
Oh the delight of such a day
For family time without a care
And tying quilt while talking to loves
Thank you, Lord, for such a delightful day!❤
Now into Monday, we are back to the grind, school in full force, the handyman is back to change out the doors and locks, something sorely needed (as it has become almost a challenge to get out lol) and led lights will up on the now screened in porch for lighting. So we can start using it in the evenings! And cooking and cleaning and normal stuff today and most of the week. I love being home and feel so blessed to be able to be. God blesses so much and I am so thankful. Have a beautiful, blessed day, friend!! ❤
The day was beautiful, the company enjoyable, our family relaxed, the pool immaculate and perfectly refreshing, great BBQ was served, and all was fantastic. And if your young preteen or teen child needs direction, a service mi daet, respect and honor training, the US NAVAL Sea Cadets and Sea Bees is certainly the way to go. They learn so much, are trained in skills and leadership and respect God first, country second and authorities third, exactly as it should be. So glad we went and what an amazing day!!! Thank you, God, for it! You are the Giver of all good things!! ❤
Today, I missed him again. It didn’t cripple me this time but brought about a strong desire to be productive and live life extra deep, with intense meaning, realizing one less person is here to love me. So, I walked a double, played and sang with greater intensity in band practice, worked a little on tying the quilt, shopped for groceries faster, trimmed more jasmine in the backyard, cooked an amazing steak and potatoes for the fam, did the dishes right away, spent more time with the kids, spoke to help and encourage two friends, showered and feel amazing. Lots of other little things, but I feel honored that God got me over the hump to reflective productivity when I miss him. I was so blessed to have him as long as I did. Was sure good to be and feel loved. Missing will always be there somewhere until heaven but it is becoming a scar tattoo of Jesus. I am growing closer to Him and He is reflecting more in me. Jesus is my hope and love. Praise God!!!❤❤❤
Some days can take you through many journeys within their span. Today I walked 2 miles, swept the porch, cleaned a room, nursed a daughter fighting a cold back to health, vacuumed, we killed a dead old bed (from too much jumping oy) and assembled a new trundle bed without instructions or hardware, a different we played tennis and swam, had two meals and preset the third to begin while we were swimming, prepared the songs for tomorrow, and now finally can work on the quilt. Busy day, feels like we lived two days in this day. Busy day. Many journeys. Many moods waded through also, my emotional family. So tomorrow will be a quiet day, church and rest and quilt. Balance is so important and I feel out of balance now so will rest tomorrow. I believe when you don’t get it right, we can get it right as soon as we decide we want to and tomorrow will be more balanced. God is so hood and allows redemption even in small things like overpopulation a day. 😄❤
