My Feet Hit the Floor All Tingly

Let’s be authentic, okay?  I’ve been battling getting up early this week to meet with Jesus.  It’s not that I don’t want to, because I do, but man, sleep, life worries, laziness, work worries, house duties … it all seemed to get in the way this week.  Yesterday I had a good lunch hour and spent it journaling; I was talking to God about my desires for Him and how I planned to get up early the next day to meet with Him.  Because He’s worth it.  He’s worth waking up early.  He’s worth putting housework off.  He’s worth pushing worries aside to concentrate on Him and my relationship with Him.  Why? Because He controls and sustains all that anyhow.  I’m not in charge of it, He is.  And if I come to Him and surrender it all to Him from the start of my day, it allows me to remember — all day long — that He is in control and will take care of my heart through it all.

I woke up 3 minutes before my alarm today.  That never happens! But it was sweet.  I thought about going back to sleep for 3 minutes, but who was I kidding … I’d never get back up!  So my feet hit the floor, all tingly.  And this song popped into my head: Come Ye Sinners by the Robbie Seay Band.  Listen to it.  Give it it’s 4 minutes and enjoy.  Allow your heart to come to Jesus as you listen.  Receive and be reminded of the truths in this song.  Enjoy Him right now and every moment of today.  I’m in it with you!

Welcome to Summer!

photo 1Well, summer is officially here for us. Today was the last day of school for the kiddos.  Nothing could be sweeter to them!!!

As a mom, I wanted to do something to make their ‘entry’ into summer a bit special, but I’ve been short on time and creativity lately.  I remember seeing this on Pinterest … I’m sure I even have it pinned somewhere, but it came to mind … it’s easy and doable and I think it will help communicate my excitement for summer to my kiddos!

The green is just poster board that I cut in wavy lines because it’s cute and mostly because I can’t cut a straight line!!! My original thought was to paint it, but I was short on time so I just used one of those big fat black permanent markers. I threw down some candy and sparklers and viola!


Here’s how my children responded when they got home … I’d say they were excited!
