Five-Minute Friday: Every Day

Sometimes I forget that

busy doesn't mean important.

And growth is fueled by rain just as much as sunshine.

Every day, it seems, I need a reminder that

blessings are not burdens.

And that actual burdens aren't so heavy when you're well-yoked as well as Well-Yoked.

Sometimes I forget that

toddler doesn't mean baby,

and preschooler doesn't mean 17.

And I don't often enough remember

that you have to start with the end in mind

but also remember that the future is not yet here.

So, today, I turn my palms up, crane my face toward the heavens and soak up reminders like I do sunshine in hopes of remembering the warmth wrapped in the realities of the every day.
