The Weekend Has Come to An End

Happy Sunday guys!! How was your weekend? Caden and I didn’t do anything spectacular but we made the most of what we did. On Friday, after getting home from work and picking Caden up from Summer Camp, we came home where I laid down to take a nap. I was supposed to go to a program at a local church, but once I laid down, my body was like “you’re not going anywhere” lol. Sometimes we have all of these ideas in our minds of what we’re going to do and our bodies simply have other plans. Our bodies has a way of telling us when its time to lay down and sleep.

On Saturday, we hung out at Top Dawg Tavern where they had Family Day. They had all types of things for the children to enjoy which was awesome. Caden was able to check out face painting, balloon animals/art, Kona Ice, and even the local animal shelter brought some cute puppies out for the kids to see. The restaurant also had a special going on for kids to choose from 5 different kids meals for only $4.95. It was a great way to get Caden out of the house for a little while.

We then stopped by Duck Doughnuts for a sweet treat! Caden got the Cookies and Cream Doughnut Sundae and I got the Salted Caramel. It was so delish!

After our little outing, we came home to nap before heading in to celebrate Apricot Lanes 4th Birthday!!! The theme for the party was “70s, 80s,& 90s Decades”. We all dressed up in our grooviest attire and welcomed customers into the store as they shopped. The sale was 50% off from 4-6. Pretty sweet huh!?

On Sunday, we attended church services and fellowshipped with family afterwards. I had planned to attend an event at 4pm, however, I began to feel very fatigued. I came home, got Caden settled and called it a day. Even though this weekend was very basic, we still got to do some things and most importantly, we had FUN! Sometimes simple is better. I hope you all had a great and safe weekend. Until next time, be safe and God Bless! xoxo

When You Cant Hear Gods Voice

Have you ever felt like life was getting so busy and the world around you was so loud that you literally felt like you could no longer hear Gods voice? Like you’ve totally been unplugged!?

As someone striving to gain a closer relationship with God, when I cant hear his voice, I go into panic mode!! If you find yourself feeling the same way, check out some of the methods I use when its time re-align myself.

  • Drop everything- Yes!! Drop the to-do list, drop the cell phone and turn the TV off.
  • Go to a quiet place- we have to allow our minds to get quiet so we can focus. Tuning out the world around and going to your quiet place is a MUST when you’re trying to hear His voice.
  • Grab your bible- I personally like to call my bible my road map because it literally directs me as I walk the Christian journey. Turn to your favorite scripture and allow it to resonate with you.
  • Grab your journal- Writing down your thoughts or how your favorite scripture made you feel allows you to think deeply about what you just took in.

Simple Is Key

Though few in number, sometimes all you need is a few simple steps to get back where you once were. While on this journey, there will be times when you may not feel his presence like you once did and I believe that’s ok. That is actually where your faith comes into play. You have to have faith and know that He is always there with us. God is always talking to us, we just have to take the headphones off. 🙂

I hope that this was beneficial to you and I hope that you continue to incorporate these methods (tuned to your liking) in your walk with Christ. Happy Sunday and God Bless! xoxo
