LONG WEEKENDS



September is nearing & I can hardly believe it, can you? I love long weekends so I couldn't be happier that this weekend is Labor Day weekend. I would like to get some last minute sunshine + cold beverages & a few games of cornhole in. 

What are your plans for the long weekend?

LEARN FROM HIM


We walked out to the garage that's getting too cluttered, and he enthusiastically waits to get into Mommy's truck. "Bubbles?" he asks, pointing at the TV screens. I reluctantly turn it on, what's supposed to be for extended road trips only.

We arrive at preschool and casually stroll in on the sidewalk, taking in the "twees," "rocks," and "watah" we spot along the way.

Confidently, he steps into the building introducing me to the "ishies" as though I never noticed the lobby fish tank before. We toddle down the hallway, legs high as if in a march.

No sooner I open the door to his classroom, his face crumples with overwhelm and he puts his arms up to me, to be held. "Hoed you," he begs.

"Momma, momma, momma," he exclaims in somewhat a nervous panic. The unfamiliar teacher throws him off his game lately.

I console him and show him toys, awaiting breakfast to be served.

"Ah," I exclaimed, "look, Reef, waffles and peaches." "No wahsohs (waffles)," he laments.

I softly explain that momma needs to go to work. "Momma work?" he responds. "Bye Momma bye," he follows.

It's like he thought it through and came to terms and let go. I learn from him.

TINY BREATHS



Little Mister is just like me – he falls fast asleep in a moving vehicle. We chuckle sometimes, when we catch him snoring. Other times, it’s just heavy breathing. Whatever it may be, it’s a sweet sound that somehow soothes me. 

I am so grateful to have this special little boy in my life. A creation that God entrusted to me. I am thankful for his breath, thankful for my ears to hear it, and thankful for my heart to love him.

TOUCHED BY CIRCUMSTANCE



In every situation, there are many stories being written in history as there are people being touched by the circumstance.

 

There’s redemption in awful circumstances to trust that God is accomplishing his purposes in you, in me.



Does it help you to know that God is accomplishing his purposes in each of them?

DO NOT WORRY



I tend to handle the major calamities in life better than the mundane, ordinary but definitely stress-inducing issues of daily living.

While I cannot imagine my world without the presence and power of Jesus Christ, I am often guilty of living as if He does not exist. The result is a stress-filled life. A trial comes and I try to handle it on my own. Loneliness empties my heart and instead of reaching out to Him, I withdraw into the darkness where stress is waiting to fill that emptiness with anxiety and fear.

If you’re undergoing stress – mental, emotion, physical or spiritual – here’s a scripture for you. And for me.

Do not worry about anything. But pray and ask God for everything you need. And when you pray, always give thanks. And God's peace will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. The peace that God gives is so great that we cannot understand it.
~Philippians 4:6-7
