Faith

I industriously moved my blog to this new website during my kiddos camp last Monday, learning to FTP to correct broken redirect links, registering with a new web host service and domain name and picked both kids up from their camp. My daughter wore her outfit for her dance class later in the evening to camp, so we headed to Target to run an errand.

Repeat after me: I will not take it out on my Surface.

Once we arrived home, the live reenactments of dances and songs (it’s a musical theatre camp) flew fast and furious. Dinner came and went and everyone settled into evening activities seamlessly.(I thought) I had some free time so I settled into the more fun parts of opening a new site, fonts, widgets and color selections. Kylee snuggled up next to me and said very matter-of-factly “Mom we’re missing my Hip Hop class.”

Oops.

Over planned. Over looked. Over scheduled.
With only fifteen minutes left in her dance class, we decided to skip this week. Embrace some family time. Shut off all the electronics. And forget the website for a little while.

At our house, something’s got to give.
I’d never forget Bible study and try to wedge it in last minutes.

Odd times.

Get to it later.

Not give it the attention it deserves until, in a panic, it’s Sunday night and I learn next to nothing in a rush to write something (anything) down in the blanks.

(Been there.)

Thankfully I don’t have to be perfect. I’m not expected to be. God loves me. He knows me. He’s working through this life with me. And I will never be perfect. I am and will continue to be a beautifully imperfect creation. Thank God imperfectly dancing through life is enough.

Learning each day to love God, love people and change the world just a little bit.

  1. Music centers me in faith and hope. Even Mick Jagger, who likely was not trying to be religious, but ‘like a rolling stone’ just resonates as a person, where the world is just a little too big today. Its not as important to ‘fill in the blanks’ in a Bible study, as to find, ‘what is here that really means something to me, right now in my life?’ Each day has a gift, a message, a reason, but sometimes I am the supporting cast, not the hero. There would be no play, without the supporting cast. #learningtolovebeingme

    1. Interesting.
      I feel like the world is getting smaller all of the time.
      It’s a little different when you’re the one teaching the Bible study. Usually I’ve done the study twice through or at least once very thoroughly (all the blanks and coming up with some side questions that I think would make for interesting discussions) and then going back and adding research, notes and relevant verses before I teach.
