This weekend has been full of a lot of family time.
I can’t tell you how good it feels to finally have my little family together and healthy on top of it.
Yesterday we went to this place called, “The Lightning Bug,” in Mars, Pa. And it was so much fun. I would call it a big arcade. But they had bumper cars and mini golf and all types of playground type things there to do. They even had food, although we went to Barrel Junction afterwards for nachos instead.
It was the perfect family day. And finally my five year old is getting over that horrid cough that he had. We had a ton of points to use there because my mom gave us a gift card for Christmas to the place and it was like a young kid’s dream to go and have a card full of cash to use at an arcade! My five-year-old was in heaven. We played mini golf outside and got a little bit of sun and I’ll admit my mini golf skills have gone downhill (literally) since the early nineties or the last time I played. I kept hitting it into the small ponds of water that were all around and my husband, knightly that he is, kept fishing it out for me using this big blue net.
It got me thinking yesterday though about how good things have been going lately. It also made me realize how much blogging I haven’t been doing. I’m hoping there isn’t a correlation and that my blogging isn’t just a bunch of complaining, but one that shares the joys of life too.
It made me think about struggles and how it seems like…sometimes I’m the closest to God when I’m having a time of heartache. Do you ever feel this way? It made me feel bad but it is true. When things get rough I’m chained to the Lord and the closest to Him.
For today I am glad that I have the relationship with Him that I do, as it is all I can do and all I can say. One day at a time. But in time, I pray that my relationship with Him continues to grow and that I am close with Him both when times are good and bad. And Amen to that!
I pray you have a good day rain or shine and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend. May it be filled with fun and delight! Amen!
