Encouragement for Today~In today's world of swirling circumstances, we need to be reminded of how much we are loved by God.

Don’t Wish It Away



Children really do grow up

Just an observation.

I thought I would crunch Cheerios under my feet for decades. And I knew I would never get to be in the bathroom alone.

And get a good’s night sleep ever again? Never…they were babies, and forget about the driving years! Sleep evades you when waiting up for one to make curfew!

But look what happened.

No more Cheerios, unless I drop them myself. And I can be in the bathroom as long as I want alone…unless the dog wanders in the sometimes open door. A good night’s sleep happens more often, and the reason it doesn’t sometimes is simply because I am getting old.

We got to spend the weekend with the kids. Our adult sons and their lovely wives. We ate, played games and laughed really hard. It’s weird in a way…

Like a time warp of sorts….I see adults…then I glance at their faces and into their eyes…..and see my baby boys.

So MOM, may you be encouraged right now…..

The time invested in your kids is worth it.
You are doing a great job.
You will have your “alone” time someday.

Just don’t wish it away.


Psalm 127:3 “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.

Trust me…it comes soon enough.

~Be Blessed

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 59 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 43 years, married 40 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, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
