“What are you doing?” 
“Driving, driving & then I’ll do some driving. This is my life”

This was a recent conversation with a friend since My kids have started school. Seems like I’ve transitioned into transportation service, possibly considering an uber career – jk ,)

But in all seriousness, I found myself being cranky about all of this running around. Now I’m thankful for an intervention: divine perspective. And here are the things I’ve he found helpful in this new season of life:

  • It could be worse because sooner than I want, I’ll have 3teenage drivers
  • Driving affords me the opportunity to listen to my kids & that is altogether golden
  • I get some high value God time as I drive
  • Education is a gift so treat it as valuable rather than an imposition ,)

lemons or lemonade

I’ve recently returned from a very quick trip to Belfast Ireland & have been navigating the normal jet lag & weird sleep hours that accompany international travel.  Consequently, I’ve been waking up at not such exciting hours in the night.  Today, I woke up at 2am (I think my finger is infected because it was throbbing) & I was none too happy about being so alert when I should be so sleeping – lemons 🙁

But here’s some lemonade:  yesterday, I woke up at 3am and very perky.  I decided to use the “extra” time to do some work on a book I’m writing about the Holy Spirit.  Needless to say, the house was quiet and I could nestle into listening to the Holy Spirit guide me about how and what to write.  As a result, what we wrote is very engaging, insightful and beautiful.

So here’s to making lemonade out of lemons in our daily living 🙂
