Sunday Prayer: Family

Sunday Prayer: Family

Dear Lord, This week was so much more than I bargained for. Not only did we get to spend ample time with family, we did it around dinner with no television on. A feat within itself. Aside from spending time with both sets of parents (Mine and Mr.C) we were also able to carve out a bit of us time as well–something that is usually hard to come by. Even though our feet hurt and our backs are aching, neither one of us would change this week’s event for anything. Thank you for watching over my family and all of our families during this week. You know how stressful family gatherings can be, so thank you for keeping us in the palm of your hand. Please continue to watch over us and remind us that we can have family time all the time if we make the time. Thank you....
Sunday Prayer:  Rejuvenation

Sunday Prayer: Rejuvenation

Dear Lord, Please help me collect myself. There are days when I feel like I am not myself. Constantly being lost in the haze of caring for someone or some people, but usually never seeing the efforts return. I know why I do what I do Lord, it’s not to martyr myself, or talk other into helping out. But there are just days when I feel like my efforts are expected. I pray that during this Holiday season, I can re-align myself with my needs and feelings. I need to remind myself that time for myself is not something that one has to ask for, it’s something that needs to be demanded. It is only through rejuvenation that one can feel themselves again. I ask Lord that you grant me clarity for me to see things as they truly are....
Sunday Prayer: Surrounded by Beauty

Sunday Prayer: Surrounded by Beauty

Dear Lord, You have given me so much this week, how can I not thank You? Just before my eyes I can see the magic and power of your work when looking out the window. It doesn’t matter how often things don’t go according to my plans, everything is still working according to You. Even though I know in a few months the bright rust color of leaves will be replaced by snow, I know and I am humbled by a greater power at work. All I ask Lord, is for you to help me to keep my eyes open, and never take advantage of the beauty around me....
Sunday Prayer: Day Lights Savings

Sunday Prayer: Day Lights Savings

Dear Lord, When you sent out the memo regarding day light savings, why did you skip my daughter? The one night in the year when I could have gotten an extra hour of sleep, has been reduced–by a lot. Not to complain, but I haven’t has this much less sleep since she was a newborn. It might have been funny seeing me wake up every 2 hours for some reason, while everyone else around me is sleeping (happily–might I add) with the extra hour you gave them. Well, not to sound ungrateful, but thank you for letting my husband try his hand at keeping Zee entertained while I try and rest. Not like I know how to rest when I finally get it, but I tried (You know I did). Even though this is going to be the longest day of the year (for me at least) I am going to do my best to survive it. So, umm, yeah, thank you for that extra hour of sleep–I know someone enjoyed it [giving the side eye to my husband] ....
Sunday Prayer: Music

Sunday Prayer: Music

Dear Lord, For the past several weeks, I have noticed that my daughter has developed, musically. Aside from thinking she’s Alicia Keys when she’s singing Empire State of Mind, my daughter also sometimes thinks she Yo-Yo Ma with his cello, and Santana with his guitar. It’s funny when you see it (as I’m sure you see it often), but I still get a kick out of it. I do wish that I had the means to get the instruments that she’s pretending to play (piano, cello, guitar, ooh her new favorite, clarinet), but I know reality is, I don’t know how long this phase is going to last. Did I do a good thing by showing her a video of these artists playing their instruments? Who knows. Only thing that I do know, is that a seed was planted. Hopefully in time, it can grow. Amazingly, I don’t have anything to complain about (aside from not winning the lottery yet–I know, I know, I have to play it to win it. I thought You can just take of that for me). So I just want to say, Thank you....
Sunday Prayer: Free Will

Sunday Prayer: Free Will

Dear Lord, I don’t know where to begin with this one. I want to say thank you for common sense, but I wonder why you gave us free will first. For example Lord, I tell my daughter not to climb because she can fall–see, common sense that I’m sharing. Her free will says climb anyway can come to after she falls–common sense not working. Of course I understand that if you changed things up now, our parents will not be able to smile at all the “trouble” our little one gets into. I know it’s an insider joke between you and the grandparents–I’m not offended (if you were worried). If you were to make any changes (please, not just on my behalf), then might I suggest common sense before free will? We all know children are impulsive, but if they had common sense (or listened when the parents share theirs) then this world might be a better place (cliché I know, but it sounds nice). However, deep down I’m probably just wondering, why couldn’t Zee just take my word for it–I haven’t lied to her yet, why start now? Hmm…maybe my next prayer should be a sedative for me. If she’s like this now, I shudder to think about how it will be when she’s a...
