Some Days

There are days when I love living where we live. There are days when a kid tells me he wants to be just like us when he grows up and I am encouraged. There are days when I know it is worth it, a difference is being made. Then there are days like today. . . Days when I when bikes and phones get stolen from the basketball courts or the backyard. Days when I wish the “s” word was shut up or that the notes my first grader gets in class are a simple “do you like me? Yes or no? Instead, I cant even write what kind of note he gets. Some days I wonder if I am helping some kids but hurting mine?
Some days I gladly open my doors and welcome each visitor. Today, I lock the door begging for a few minutes of quiet. Some days I love that my backyard is open for all the world to see and come play. Some days I can find a spiritual truth behind every circumstance and some days I sit in the back yard just begging God to change my angry heart.
Here I sit, soaking up sun asking the SON to change my mood and to please make all horns stop beeping. I can’t read my book with all the noise. 🙂

    1. Glad to hear, some days I hesistate to vent the frustrations but glad to have community where we all feel life on earth! Waiting for Heaven!

  3. Kasey…..your so very amazing to me. I see the things you do and I wonder how it is possible to have so much patience and love for a community. I appreciate and love you very much. There is gonna come a day when you get to lay your crown t Jesus’ feet. Your reward will be great. Way more than cell phones and bikes. I cant wait to see it…Thanks for all that you do. I am pretty sure the boys are layin up some treasures in heaven too, just because they have have a Godly Mom to show them how to love like Jesus does.
