Normalcy What Is That !?!



I have felt this way everyday this week! It's been a long hard week! Not just for me but my family as well. All though there is so many things I am so very thankful for. I have realized it's okay to have a bad day along the way as well to just want to  have some normalcy.
Then I have to ask myself what does normalcy even look like! I had to giggle! Because I am not sure if I truly even know!

Still I think about our world and the state of panic we seem to be in and think the only way there is ever going to be normalcy or peace again is when we turn to the one who can give it to us! 
We have to want it bad enough to go to our Daddy for it, My heart feels He is waiting for the ones who don't normally seek him out to do so and ask for it! Ask him to heal our land and our people!
I have been thinking back on you childhood this week! My sisters and I would play Barbies and babies for hours when we were young. We would set up elaborate houses and pretend to visit one another and go shopping. Everything seemed so right with the world! I miss those days of simplicity and not needing to really know all the grown up stuff  of the world !
We reacted in our play what we learned at home. If we were playing house we treated our babies the way were and the same life scenario with our barbies.
I wonder if I was looking in what I may learn today when kids play?
I know this time has been just as hard for them as it has been for the adults. 
I hear of some of my sweet kiddo's from church upset because they don't understand why they can not see their friends and loved ones.
So I was trying to come up with something I could do maybe make someone smile during this time! My heart always seems to be happiest when I can serve someone else! I was thinking why not do maybe a 7 day acts of kindness,
Now I know what your thinking... Money is tight right now I can't afford to buy gifts for people right now. You don't have to spend hardly anything if you choose to! Or you can set a small budget to use! It is all up to you!
You send a card to someone just to brighten their day! If you have little ones let them make the card for you! Whoever receives it will love it all the more! Bak
e some cookies and share 1/2 the batch with a neighbor! Pay for someone's morning coffee! Have rose bushes cut a bouquet for a friend and deliver them to her door. The list can be made up of so many things.
If you have little ones they can get involved as well!
As we approach celebrating Independence Day! The beginning of our countries many freedoms! How else can we bring sunshine to someone else?
How else can I pay it forward as so many before me has! 
Happiness begins when we serve others with a thankful heart! Not a grumbly one. 
When we truly do something because we want to bless someone else.
How can I reach my grandchildren and your children to love the country they live in teach them to love those who live in it no matter what color or what makes them different!
So do you wanna join in with me? 
I am kind excited to be able to make someone smile!
The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
I don't know about you but I just love it when my Daddy is proud of me! Even more than that when He feels like he can bless me!
Remember if you go out this holiday weekend! Wear your make and social distance stay healthy and well!
I guess I will get out of the bed lol and redeem the evening till bedtime comes !:)

As always thank you for sharing your time with me! I don't take that gift lightly! I hope you have an amazing weekend and week ahead!
Prayerfully Yours ~Shellie~
