Lights Out

Turn off the lights and the lamp goes out. Preplexed for a moment I go over to the lamp, it was just on. It’s still hot but just not working. Boooo. I thought to myself. I wanted  to read with a little lamp, not the big light. To unwind. A guest at a house not knowing wear to dig for lamps. I have a choice. Pout or roll with it.

Half way on my choice to roll with it, I see the new candle next to the lamp called fluffy towels. I smile and run into the kitchen for a lighter. God is awesome. Now I am reading and writing by candlelight, which is just utterly beautiful. Something I never would have thought of on my own,  I love God and his funny manerisms.

Cheers to cherishing these little moments of time,  that makes me feel SO grateful to be living, breathing and drinking in the beauty of the unexpected.

I found these photos & then these words above in my journal and just had to share it. Sometimes, we need to just roll with the punches and see what is to come, quite possibly it’s more awesome than you could ever have imagined. So today, when something unfortunate happens, slow down. Breathe in and embrace that moment. Hit traffic? Then turn up the tunes and have a dance party. Slow internet? Then take two minutes to ask yourself how are you really feeling today?  Choose to roll with the punches, choose your reaction. It might just surprise you!
