Greetings and Holykisses,
I so enjoyed reading your responses and emails from yesterday's post.
As much as I'm trying to get away from my need for approval from others; encouragement from my brothers and sisters in Christ is a true blessing. I'm blessed to have friends who pull me along and uPward.
It's funny that as hard as it was to publish my thoughts from the last post; I found out that many of you had/have similar stories. I think sharing our journeys is helpful; so thank you for sharing with me as well. It really means alot to me!
Looking back to the moment when I was walking around that pasture and asking God what I could do to make a difference for Him... I didn't think He answered me at the time. But what He showed me was that He gives opportunities all day long; I was just too busy un-noticing people. By un-noticing, I mean: really noticing a whole lot ...but still turning away.
Since that last encounter I shared with yall, I'm looking harder to see those opportunities as they really are. So far today, I've had 7 really very- cool noticeable ones!!! And until all of that happened yesterday, I'm pretty sure the ones today.... I would maybe have un-noticed again. So... happily, I report; things are looking uP!!!
I hope all of you are having a great weekend. I spent most of the day babysitting two of the cutest little girls. Our sons are 26, and 24, so my babysitting skills are not what they used to be that's for sure. I think at first I was squeezing the baby a little too hard making sure I didn't drop her. lol And changing diapers... I forgot how fast they get away from you! Ohmygosh. Fiddlin with those tapes and trying to get them undone faster than baby can roll over and crawl away is .... well; let's just say it was a challenge!!! lol Being a Mommy of little boys- is a whole different thing, than watching little girls! But it was fun. And with little girls you get to have tea parties, and play dress up, ... you get to watch Beauty and the Beast over and over and over again. Lol The Belle song is still stuck inside my head. "Look there she goes that girl is strange, no question
Dazed and distracted, can't you tell?.. Never part of any crowd,'Cause her head's up on some cloud; No denying she's a funny girl that Belle!!! "Bonjour, Bonjour...Bonjour!!! - gotta love it! Oh and even better than that I was so pleased to learn proper teaparty etiquette! Did you know from the mouth of a three year old: when having a teaparty you don't pretend to eat a cookie, you have to eat a cookie for real. --I love that rule. Good rule!! ;) (A girl after my own heart.)
Have a great weekend.
