Sunday Inspiration


Happy Sunday Friends. I hope you are getting a good start to your day. I am sitting here enjoy the beautiful day with coffee in hand and computer in front of me. I woke to cuddles with a very special little boy and a bunch of animals competing for my attention. Scott is on the golf course and should be home pretty soon. I don't really know what the rest of the day holds but I am just glad that I don't have to be in the Sunday mode with getting things ready for school on Monday. At least this week we all have one extra day before starting a busy week.

So how about the rules above for being human? What do you guys think about it. I saw it and felt instantly everything listed couldn't be more true and/or accurate. I think what most of us fail to realize is that this entire life is just a big classroom. I think we are all here to better our souls and we do that through the lessons of our lives. I know when going through a big breakup or someone close to you dying doesn't feel like a lesson in the moment but it truly is. I don't think many of us look at the bigger picture most days. There is a reason for everything but that doesn't mean we are suppose to know that reason right away.

 “The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” -Lamentations 3:25-26  Because  Right now, as we wait, He is working all things together for our good and His glory (RomThis past week, I have just not been feeling like myself. I can't really explain why but its been hard finding any kind of balance. I haven't been sleeping well...I haven't been feeling well along with a bunch of other things. Cooper ( our dog ) is still not feeling well. The house needed a ton of my attention. I had lots of videos and blog posts I was needing to do. I really was trying to  do my best to try to return to some kind of  normal schedule. Jackson started back at school a couple of weeks ago and since I have been off in every way. I am not sure I even came back from Myrtle Beach. I think my head and soul are still lingering around that resort watching that ocean come crashing in. But my head has to be here. This past week, I did my best to catch up on the house cleaning, shopping, animal care but still I just was not feeling myself. By time Tuesday evening showed up, I knew it was time to slow down and focus on myself. If we as mothers/fathers do not take care of ourselves how in the world can we take care of our families?? I decided for just a couple days I would stop worrying about the blog post or video I needed to get done. I really didn't watch much tv and I still can't tell you where the days went. I really tried to focus on myself to get feeling better. I think it helped shutting things down and focusing on what my heart and soul was feeling. I took more time outside where I listened to the birds sing, felt the trees and grass come alive and I knew that was all God. I think God wanted me to slow down my life to see the beauty that I had been missing with all my busy thoughts and busy life. I know being out in nature is being with God. I see the presence of God everywhere. The key though, is slowing down long enough not just see it but to feel it. Its all about the timing. His timing.. God's timing. 

So this next week, I am going still try to keep to my schedule but more importantly Gods schedule. I already know when things are going wrong, to stop and refocus but I rarely do it when I should. I was hard for me to decide to shut down the computer for a few days. It was hard to cut myself out of things I normally do but it worked out because I do feel better now. I really wish things would go according to my schedule more but over those few days,  I realized that its totally ok to just let go and let things happen in the divine way and I hope you guys do the same. 

Have a beautiful day.
