|At Chuck E. Cheese for Opie's birthday get-away day|
I wouldn't blame you if you thought my blog had turned into gloom and doom.
It's a heavy season of life.
But, seasons pass.
And just to show you that God throws a little light into the darkness, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite light moments lately:
|Opie, being silly.|
Austin loves playing the game "Wipe Out" on the Wii. He and Jayden were playing it the other day while I was in another room reading my Bible. I overheard them talking so sweetly to each other. (which is reason to celebrate in our home...)
Jayden said, " You're the best brother ever." Austin replied, "You a good buddy. Oh my gosh! It went towards me. Your turn!" When they won the game, Austin shouted, "We just won a hunj-chousan-dah'yers!"
Jayden gave me advice when he saw I was a little overwhelmed. It was advice I'd previously given him. He said, "Mom, don't worry about tomorrow because today has enough trouble of it's own." (Matthew 6:34)
Glad something good I said is sticking with him, though, right?!?!
I found out my Mom is wanted for pillow thievery. Hilarious long story that made me laugh 'til I cried.
I love when hilarious stories are God's way of bringing a little light into our dark moments. :)

Lord, in the dark, allow me to see the light moments. Thank you for laughter. For sunshine. For my family. And for being a God who loves to make me smile even in the midst of trials. I love you.
