Face the future…

I’ve been playing with the iPad I received for Mother’s day and I’m loving the procreate app with the Apple pencil. I have pages and pages of quotes and doodles (some are mine and the rest are the kids’ masterpieces). This particular graphic was used for a Sunday lesson I taught a couple weeks back. It was applicable then and not surprising, it’s applicable now!

Life we had planned…

I am a planner by nature. I like to follow plans – which makes me not overly spontaneous. But planning allows me to accomplish things and be accountable for my time…like I said its in my nature.

Fortunately, with much practice I’m learning to be more flexible. This is a concept I’m sure I have over talked about with my kids in the last two months.

Plans change. It’s inevitable. And when plans change we’re often left angry or frustrated or disappointed. (I’m sure we all have a list of disappointments in the past few months!) But we all have a life that is waiting for us – if we can just get out of the way! 🙂

One large swimming pool…

In a news environment where most everything is meant to scare or induce fear – our family is finding the real winners on the internet these days are…memes. Every day my kids want to know what the funny of the day is.

In my scrolling of social media I have come across some funny things – there are some seriously creative people out there – and they bring a smile to my face daily among the doom and gloom news articles. I screenshot the things I come across and then share them with the family.

For whatever reason, this one struck my funny bone and I still giggle when I read it. I saw this at a time when our state had just locked down (although our family had already willingly shut down two weeks before that) and other states were debating whether lock downs would apply to their state. I just picture the entire United States as a pool with some states choosing to be the “warm section”. 🙂

As someone who owns a pool – we choose not to have a peeing section – it’s better for everyone involved! Although some of my kids may think the whole pool is a peeing section!

Sunday will come…

I think every year, I post this is exact quote around Easter because I love it that much. I heard it years ago and it’s never left me – it’s burned deep within my soul. I’ve used it in Easter talks I’ve been asked to give. I’ve shared it with friends who have struggled and I’m pretty sure if you stick around long enough you’ll see it here annually.

For anyone that needs to hear it – Sunday will come. Sunday is the hope that gets you through a Friday. And we’ll all have our Fridays. Just hang on to hope.
