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…❤
This day was full of busy (the 5-k and making of a costume before a deadline) and beautiful catching up with wonderful friends we love dearly that live far away. It rang with the familiar bells of too much to do, blended with the joy and peace of reuniting with very great friends and then more busy-ness (the flat tire) and then more beautiful with watching my husband’s other band play a gig and then being a roadie. Busy and beautiful was the order of the day, and despite every potential frustration, I have been unable to stop smiling. Truly, God’s brilliant light shone on us all day long. He is the Maker and lifter of our heads. May God be praised!!❤
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!! ❤
