Simple Blink

Don’t do it.



There was a time in my life when I thought I couldn’t blink enough times nor quick enough!!

I was knee deep in cheerios, literally.  This “type A” personality gal tried so hard to organize the toys in color coded, labeled bends.  That way they could be read by the boys as they “picked up” after themselves …….which I eventually considered to be a lesson well taught if one or two items a piece ended up in the proper location.

Sleeping    became   a     luxury…..a      dream….

Redefined as any amount of time that equaled 4 hours or more..straight.  Funny, now I often go to bed and wake up 4 hours later, read and think nothing of not getting a full night’s sleep.  I can always rest during the day.

Then when sleeping was an actual option….the four year old would crawl into bed because of a horrible dream.  I knew that he wouldn’t be doing that at 13…and it ended much sooner.  Now the dog lays at the foot of the bed, and we worry that when we get up we will disturb him.

I thought taking a bath was heaven if I got 5 minutes in the bubbles…alone.  Now I can soak in the hot tub for as long as I want….no one is waiting to tell me about the lego castle that is keeping the dragon from getting to the village and hurting the people that live 670px-Make-Lego-Cool-Castles-Step-7

behind the walls.

Moms told me not to “blink” because they would grow up so fast.

Well they did…..and I blinked………….

they were in college,


                                              enjoying a life all their own.

Luke 18:16  “But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.”

I really think I blinked too fast.

Be blessed

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~
