I think the trick to making it in this world is to believe in a Higher Power. (however you want to perceive it) And, know, wholeheartedly, that with grace, hard work and prayer, we’ve got this! Ain’t nobody or no thang gonna hold us down. Oh, no. We’ve got to keep on mo vin’! 😉
However, sometimes we are ‘movin”so fast that the signs that are our “Director” is pointing out to us are being ignored. Makes sense. It’s easy to do. The day in, day out hustle and bustle routiney weanies get us acting nutso because we are not. made. to be. robots! But, we have to be take responsibility ;), so, we do. Perhaps, however, we can s l o w down the speed in which our responsibilities are still taken of care.
For example! It just may be o.k. to have a picnic dinner and end a little later, getting off schedule a bit, maybe prolonging dishwashing, since the laughter, the conversations, the cuddles, the MEMORIES make it all worthwhile. We live one life. At the end of the day, everyone’s needs will have been met and everyone will have gotten the amount of rest needed. Point is, getting slightly off schedule and switching it up a bit usually turns out to be a blessing and worth every minute of uncomfortableness. Sometimes we have to get out of our comfort zones in order to really connect with the Universe (love).
And, then there those times in our lives when it requires a lot more strength and courage to keep our faith. Our world sometimes feels like it’s crumbling…nothing is working out…it’s one thing after another…It’s easy to lose hope.
It’s much harder to “stay adrift” despite all of the “series of unfortunate events”.
But, we’re better than that! And, MUCH MORE CAPABLE. We have our “homework assignments”, for sure!…actually LISTENING to Papa and actually DOING the hard work that is required to reach our goals. It’s pure silliness to expect miracles to happen if we stay sitting on our couch, only pray and, DO NOTHING. Eckh!
If it’s a peaceful home and a productive life that we desire and/or hope to maintain, keeping our eyes on the light, combined with determination, resilience and perseverance, we’ll reap gobs and gobs of rewards. It will be a win-win for everyone…YOU’LL SEE! 🙂
Promise me that we’ll stay adrift, despite…
“God, thank You for the beautiful promise of a home. Please bring peace to our world, and provide for the needs of all of Your children.”
