If you look back, do so forgivingly. If you must move forward, do so prayerfully . However the wisest thing you can do is be in the present, gratefully.
I have been guilty of complaining about the current situation in the world but this reminded me to be grateful for every day that God gives me. We are not promised tomorrow.
When we walked into the antique store and saw that the book case was still there. I did say a little prayer thanking God for granting me a small desire.
I love decorating. I got tickled at Audrey because she asked me why I had plates on the wall at Nanaland. To her little mind, plates were for one thing only. I also had a tassle on a lamp that she was confused about...what is this? Why is it here? I asked her if she had any decorations at her house. She told me NO. Charles confirmed it when he said that with two little ones, decorations are often broken.
I have to say that when my own children were young, we did have decorations and they were taught not to touch them. But then I was a stern mama. I think it is important to enjoy the beauty of small delights.
