Friday Fun Day

I don’t know about you, but those little sparkles that you can buy during the Fourth of July holidays make me feel like a little kid.

They light up the night.

They sizzle.

They pop.

They bring sweet memories rushing in of innocence and laughter.

If you’re struggling today to find some peace, and if your striving this week to find some joy, just go pick up a box of those sparklers.

Light ‘em up.

Let them spark.

Let them bring a moment of joy to your heart, and remember there’s still hope.

Because there’s still breath to breathe.

Enjoy your Friday Fun Day!

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

Friday Fun Day

It’s Friday, and I’m back!

Fridays are made for fun!

So, let’s go have some!

Get outside. Run, jump, and play.

Do something fun.

Swim, run, hike, or just enjoy the day.

Don’t stop until it’s done.

Friday Fun Day

On Saturday 😂

Well, it’s been a while, and really, Friday Fun Day is way overdue!

My apologies. I suppose, I’ve been a bit distracted from writing lately, or at least, from writing the “fun stuff.”

So, without further ado, let’s have a Friday Fun Day, and since today is Saturday, there’s no better time than the present! 😉

Don’t delay! Get outside. Take a road trip. Hike a mountain. Ride a bike. Stroll along the beach, or maybe just step into your back yard, beyond the chaos and the noise.

Breathe deep.

Exhale slowly.

Remember, the Creator of the Universe loves you.

Although chaos is all around in our world, He can bring perfect peace to your heart.

Just speak His name. Take a moment to talk with Him.

He will listen. Your heart will be changed.

And your Friday Fun Days can begin even on a Saturday. 💕

Friday Fun Day

Everyone is quarantined or at least too many are.

So, can we find a Friday Fun Day anyway?

Everyone is sheltered in place or at least more than I can count are.

So, is a Friday Funday even available?

Everyone is confined to their area or at least way more than I’d like to say are.

So, how can we find a Friday Fun Day in the midst of all this?

1. It’s in perspective. What do you see?

2. It’s in your thoughts. What do you say?

3. It’s in your decisions. What do you do?

You are only quarantined as much as you can see yourself contained.

You are only sheltered as much as you let yourself speak of the restrictions.

You are only held back to the degree by which you allow yourself to not move.

Whatever your situation, wherever you are, and whatever you commit to carrying out determines your own level of fun.

Your fun may not be my fun, but seek it out.

Embrace it.

Cherish it.

Treasure it and reminisce.

It is for your choosing.

Now, go have some fun!! 🎉

Friday Fun Day

On Saturday…and a week late!

(Please, forgive me!)

Stop and take a deep breath!

Step out from those four walls that confine and remember there’s a higher authority.

Shut off that TV, and take a walk; take a drive; or just sit in your backyard and soak up some sun.

Do something to remind you there is a God. He is still in control, and He still holds you in the palm of His hand.

He is more than able.
Just rest. Just trust. Just believe.

Romans 8:37-39

Friday Fun Day

Go ahead. ➡️

Indulge a little. 😋

Why not? 🤷‍♀️

It’s 5:00 somewhere. 💁‍♀️

Oh yeah, here! 😉

It’s Friday Fun Day! 😜

Friday Fun Day

A little late, but done anyway…😂

Friday Fun Day came a day late this week as I battled not feeling well throughout the days, and then, our oldest asked me to take him and his little crew of friends to the mountains yesterday.

Oh what a beautiful day to end a dreary, rainy, sickness filled week.

Sometimes, things don’t happen in the timeline we’d prefer, but nevertheless, don’t let that stop the fun!

If you didn’t get your Friday Fun Day this week, you’ve still got time. Get out and smell the roses. Chase a waterfall. Soak up some sun.

Take a deep breath and breathe it all in.

Remember:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. (Author unknown)

Go have a Friday Fun Day even on Sunday! 😊

Friday Fun Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! 💗

I don’t care who you ARE

Choose to BREATHE and SMILE and LAUGH.

It can be a FRIDAY FUN DAY no matter where you are, who you are, who’s around or where you’re going!

Today is a GIFT. Receive it and ENJOY IT.

It’s all about PERSPECTIVE!

Friday Fun Day

This isn’t a great picture, but I wanted to post it, because it was such a fun and funny moment.

For this man right here, this week has been full of real estate talks and land sales (and hold ups), attorney convos, assisting of various church organizing and leading (in other cities), office move preparations and oversight of room renovations, combined with parental directions for a soon to be college student who is being presented with some big opportunities, and just the normal day-to-day stuff as well.

Needless to say, my husband has had a full week, and it’s not even Friday yet.

But today, as there were renovations and closet clean outs going on in our gym, he sat down in a rolling chair, stuck a sombrero on his hat and carried on a funny conversation with our Hispanic campus pastor.

Once off that call, he proceeded to roll around in the room, “racing” one of our college students through a maze of tables that were being set up for an event tomorrow night.

Then, as we left the building, he flirted with me all the way out the door and carried the folders with which I was weighted down and transported them over to my truck; so, I didn’t drop the pile as I tried to run for cover in the threatening rain.

All of this fun was in the midst of all the busyness, all the potential chaos and all the business that had to be done.

He’s my hero. ❤️

For many, many reasons, but especially today because he reminded me to dance in the rain.

He reminded me that regardless of the workload, it’s important to just take a moment to breathe.

He reminded me, in the middle of what could make a man be totally frustrated, angry or even bedraggled, he always chooses to laugh.

Thank you, my love, for setting me up to have an amazing Friday Fun Day! ❤️

Friday Fun Day

Well, this week was continued in my battle with the crud’s, and I really wasn’t so sure I was going to have a Friday Fun Day today.

But I awoke this morning, feeling much better, while still struggling with a bit of congestion and coughing; yet, I had such a case of cabin fever that I was beyond ready to get out of the house!

Usually when my husband asks, “Me hat do you want to do for lunch?” I typically answer, “It doesn’t matter to me. However today, I almost didn’t let him finish the question! 😂

I answered within a nanosecond that I wanted to go OUT for lunch, and then, I’d come home and cook the roast I have waiting to have for lunch tomorrow!

He got a good laugh out of that one. 🤣

… then after lunch, we came home, and I helped my son work on his FAFSA form! 😳😬😖

(yeah, we’re a bit behind schedule…don’t follow our lead on that one!)

Not sure THAT was such a great Friday fun day, but there was definitely a moment to rejoice when it was all said and done!!

Like I said last week, sometimes, you just have to put your days in perspective! 😉

Hope your Friday had some fun in it! 🎉
