The Small Ironies…..

She gets up with me.....
She gets up with me…..

I love The Small Ironies in life. For example, 22 years ago, when Princess herself was 3, I’d never…on purpose….be up at 5am! Now, I make very deliberate efforts to be up, because it’s my “me” time. You should see me every night before I go to bed. I’m a wreck..babbling incoherently……. The Texas Tornado, known as Duchess is a deal changer, so 5am is a nice time to sit, reflect and write…..how do you think my day will go….when they get up at 5am….WITH ME? Sigh…

Did you know: If you give your toddler the last of the Cheerio’s, she will spill said Cheerio’s? If you brag on Facebook that you’re the last man standing in the war on germs, you will meet the same fate as the last man standing in Night of the Living Dead? If you promise your son game time, IF Mr. Cinderfella gets his am routine complete, he will make like an Olympian and finish, BUT, any other given am…you’re grounding him from everything but his own bed? Irony…it’s the Chili Powder….of life.

I must remember just how quickly Princess grew up, and moved out. I went to bed one evening, and the next morning, she was gone…sigh. When Merrill gets up, I sense an empty bed, and I’m up. The babies are no different (they get to sleep with me when Big Daddy’s out of town). When I get up, they get up too….and frankly, it’s okay…..it gives me extra time with them. When they grow up, (they will you know) and I’ve passed them off to their spouses, I’ll write, but for now….well…I’ll pick up the Cheerio’s and offer a Pop Tart. Yes, I am a awesome mother. For those of you with babies, just remember, they’re home for a short time. Enjoy the ironies…..It means you’re still alive and they’re still home. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show Grace and Mercy to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Tuesday.

Take This Man to Prison

Take This Man To Prison
Take This Man To Prison

When the jailer awoke and saw the prison doors opened, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. But Paul cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here!” And he called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas,…(Acts 16:27-29). At the darkest hour of the day, there was a great earthquake, and the chains that bound the men of God (and every other criminal in the prison) opened up and fell. It was this scene that the Jailer, a man who easily had the most thankless job of the culture, encountered as he awakened, and then attempted to commit suicide.

We too go through the quakes, and isn’t it ironic that the tremors come upon us, in our darkest hour as well? The jailor was terrified because not only did he lose control of the jail, but the consequences from the Roman Government was going to be swift and severe…He’d RATHER DIE…..Paul understood his FEAR, but instead of walking out; which was his right, he stayed, and honored God. When we hear, then follow, the small still voice in the dark, we too can be comforted, knowing that like Paul with his Jailor, God too…is here with us. We can panic, or we can wait, either way, Fear is not from the Lord. It’s how we react to our “DARK”, that determines the effects of the His Light. Paul could have left….He didn’t…..”Do not harm yourself, He is here”…..May your Dawn rise soon. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE AND MERCY to all those who cross your path today.
