An Easy Enough Question…❤

This was on the door at my daughter’s summer camp yesterday. Simplicity. And something we don’t consider nearly enough. Ask yourself. Ask your kids. Then ask yourself again.

I’m posting this today, because I know my answer. Because *it* is my answer. Celebrating the continuing practice of allowing positivity to work in me on days I feel everything to the contrary. That it can work for me and not against. My favorite thing today is the awareness of having grown to recognize the difference. And being ready with a new skill set for the challenge.

…and the day ain’t over yet. Don’t short yourself. Remember to acknowledge the good. Even if it is just a simple question. Find the answer no matter what.

Sam

I’d love to hear yours 🤗🤗🤗

  1. We do a variation at dinner…high/low. What was high point and low point of day.

    1. Thats a great idea! We try to balance good reporting with bad. When all else fails and we’re leaning too much towards the negative, someone will always say, “Ok, lets talk about donuts! Donuts are delicious!” as our positive gear change😂😂😂

      1. We started when my daughter was little because w3 wanted her to know that everyone has bad days, but you need to learn to recover. Fourteen years and going strong!

        1. 🙌🙌🙌 That’s excellent! A great tradition 😊 We are working on the fact that one thing, or a few smallish things do not in fact make a whole “bad day”. Changing the thinking, as it were.

      1. I switched from an LG G6 to an Apple 6s. It was a mistake that I made while trying to order online over the weekend, but now that it’s here, I’m enjoying learning how to use it! A few things are different so far but not much. I have two weeks to try it out before I can’t change my mind.

  5. my son and I do a mini devotion every morning. Today he asked a bunch of questions. I love it when he is inquisitive and I love when I know he gets it. that was my favorite thing today. (btw he is only 7 and all boy lol)

    1. So nice! I dont leave the time to inspire the start of our day that way but we need to. We would end bedtimes with devotions when my daughter was little a few years ago (6 now), and there had been one that involved expression of love and emotion through color. We discussed the warmth of oranges and yellows and when I asked her for other input she said, “black…like the back of your throat”…..*😒😒😒* BUT! Up to that point it had been successful!

      1. lol. We started doing devotions about 4 months ago. Our church split and we were one of the last ones to leave. (still broken hearted over that) We started going to my husbands dad’s church. It was super small and I felt he was not getting what he needed from Sunday School. (have since found a church we love and is where we are suppose to go) So we started lessons in the morning. And now I don’t know why we have not done it all along. We both love it. We sit down before school/work and eat our breakfast and watch little 5 minute you tube devotionals and then we discuss it and pray over our day. It has been super nice and he has learned a lot. I believe now I would not want to start my day any other way.

        1. I’m sorry to hear about your church.😔 Im glad you found a new home. We had some trouble a few years back having to move around. For a short while we were at a church that supported a fantastic Sunday School program but everything else left so much to be desired and there was too much an overtone of wealth for the church itself. I was hearing cash registers in my head instead of recieving any message during the service and we left shortly after that. We’ve since found a nice tiny congregation to belong to with an amazing sunday school program. It really does make all the difference!

          1. Yes… I know what you mean. that was the problem with the church we left. they wanted to spend 50,000 on the sanctuary and take away one classroom to give the pastor a “bigger” office. and we only had 2 classrooms go begin with. It was insane. I mean we could have done a few maintenance items to the church. but not that much money ….. it was a waste and it could have been used so many different ways. but it was all about appearance to them. They say people will come if the church is nicer and more modern. NO people will come if the Lord is there and the people inside are loving and welcoming. That is what draws people. not a big screen tv on the stage and canned lighting. well I guess ill step off my soap box now.. lol ..

            1. Ug. Yep that all sort of rings familiar to me. I agree fully because where we finally settled…the church is old. It isnt fancy by Superchurch standards. Its extremely traditional. And a small faithful congregation follows. I do not want to see big screens (or any for that matter) during the service. Small donors are supported and welcomed the same as larger ones. They aren’t looking to “grow”. They intend for who follows to *stay*. I for one appreciate that simplicity. Not backbiting newbies. Or judging. Unfortunately I feel that often comes in churches with their eyes on the prize….😔

            2. Yes unfortunately that is true in a lot of places. It is sad. I like a small church where you know everyone and it does not matter who you are they accept you and love you. I really doubt there will be big screen tvs and fancy lighting in heaven. I doubt they will have a coffee bar there either. We have a church in Springfield that has a Starbucks.. STARBUCKS IN THE BUILDING. It is pretty unreal. Lol i am a simple person and just want to go to a church that follows the Bible and loves the Lord. And i dont need a multi million dollar buidling with all the fancy stuff to get to heaven. Just an old country church is good enough for me.

    1. I love that 🤗🤗🤗 I always keep stuff like that too because its little snapshots in time. I even like finding old receipts with dates and things like that. I remember my 4th grade teacher had us write a letter to ourselves and when we ‘graduated’ 6th she sent them to us. I still have it in a box of school stuff my mom saved for me. Old drawings from kindergarten on up and all my journals from grade school 😂😂😂 Oh, and *always* ice cream!

Deliciousssssss is the taste! 😆 😆 if you see it on the shelves, get it. That and the ‘chocolate city’. That flavor might be better

          1. This chat Inspired me to find an ice cream blog to follow so I found one called ‘ice cream Magazine.’ Here on word press. Well see how it is. And I’m heading to the store later for ice cream. I ate the last mint chocolate cookie last night! 🍨 🍦
