Truths of Raising A Toddler...

Good morning blogger fans! Time to rise and shine! It's a beautiful morning and lots to do today!! 

Today's Tip: Never compare your life to pictures others post on social media. For example...if you look at the pictures from the Zoo of my family yesterday, you'd never know we had a slight family meltdown with a toddler and ended up leaving early! Every parent of a toddler experiences them but most aren't honest enough to talk about it. It reminds me of what the Bible says about "train up a child in the way he should go..." after yesterday I'm just praying to get this one raised! 😂 Before we had children I had theories of raising a I just have a child and pray a lot! Here's what I am learning..."this too shall pass!" And, just like that we were over it but Daddy wasn't! 🙄 Now I've got 2 toddlers to deal with! Truth is, it's called "LIFE!" We live. We learn. We love. We forgive. We move on. Period! It's that simple. It happens to the best of us! My tip is, be careful what you say when you're full of emotions because you can not take it back! 

"Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful." (Joshua J. Marine) 

Today's Humor: When your only tool is a hammer...all problems start looking like nails! 

Today's Scripture: "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." (Romans 12:12)

GO! Enjoy this beautiful day the Lord has given and know that you are wonderfully and beautifully made in His image!! Have an amazing day!! 

If you agree comment, like, or need to keep this to yourself - others need to read it to! 🤗😘

Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy! Do something kind today, be nice to others, and respect those you interact with. Strive to make a difference in others lives, but more importantly make a difference in your own life. Life is messy...thank God for Bounty paper towels, Grace & Mercy!

 "Pretty words aren't always true...and true words aren't always pretty, but when the truth is spoken, it's always beautiful!"

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)

Make memories and make today count for today will never come again. GO! Be the awesome person God designed you to be! Have a blessed day!
