Have fun with someone you love! I spent last night with 2 perfect 8 year old girls playing Just Dance 4 on the Wii…and winning! It made us all laugh. Laughter makes everything better. When we make time to have fun, it makes the ones we love feel love. I could not find one person who would argue with this. We should always be looking for new ways to have fun with people we love. Make it a priority. You can do something fun everyday. It can be simple and quick, or a hours on end. They are both welcomed by all with open arms.
Today, January 21, MLK day and also inauguration day. As much as I do not agree with our current president, I did not vote for him, but I will respect him. I will also teach my children to respect him. Just because we have different beliefs and opinions, doesn’t mean I can belittle him in front of my children. I will not bash him or make ugly comments. Or I will do my best not to. Our biggest issue as a nation today is division. Our biggest issue in families and churches today can also be division. Make a choice to unite on a front. Whether it is over the color you are painting the living room, or figuring our your finances. Pick one thing in your relationship and decide to come together as one to accomplish it. The only thing hindering our progress is division.
This was a tough one to write today. I try and post what God places on my heart. He absolutely put this on it, I am just not quite sure where to go with it. I had a hard time putting it down in words.
Romans 15:5-6 “May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Again, this was a tough one for me, and I am not sure I did it justice. I hope you can see beyond my meager writing to see the bigger picture. God has big plans for those of us who unite with Him.
