fun days

She often ends her day in prayers of thanks for "such a fun day" and in hope that tomorrow will be the same.

Truth be told, there are a good number of not fun days. You know?

And yet, I hear those words and they give me perspective. Because in the end what constitutes as a good day, a bad day? I'm not always certain.

Each day brings some kind of depth, of growth, of learning of oneself, striving to live out good in this world. Sometimes that feels bad and sometimes it seems amazing. And I too often judge how it feels before I am thankful for the opportunities to grow and change.

Life is truly a journey friends, is it not? Hopefully we learn and change and grow, hopefully wanting to love more along the way and give grace a little easier. And our journey is our own and that is where we must live. And I believe there is great beauty in the process.


  1. This post speaks to me right where I am at the moment- thank you!

  2. Yes, yes, yes and amen. Love you friend.

  3. What an encouragement to me today. Such a sweet reminder.


  4. sometimes when i pray with my children, i choose to consistently repeat a phrase to help instill a specific value - i find the repetition helps me also hear and believe it once again when i hear myself say it over and over again

    but how much beauty there is when we hear the truths that our heavenly father desires to instill in us through the repeated prayers of our own precious children

    simply beautiful

  5. Tears welling up in my eyes. So thankful for this perspective. So thankful for little ones who pray and are thankful. Absolutely love the picture. How sweet . . . and man, I miss you guys. Lots of love.
