Lost Keys!

Okay, so I'm sure we all have at least one story of losing our keys. At least something of that nature right. Lately keys have been my nemesis. I have never had such a hard time keeping track of them. There are days when I think I am losing it truly.

Today I got up and got myself and the kids ready early because my oldest daughter Felicity had to go the the local public school to finish her CSAP tests. (Normally we home-school.) She needed to arrive there around 8:30, so we were all ready to go when I realized that my keys were not in my bag. At first I am like don't panic you will find them. After 10 min of looking and having the kids help they were nowhere. So I yep you guessed it panicked. Or as my observant 8 year old put it got angry and freaked out. I didn't have time to mess with it, so I grabbed everyone and we walked. More like ran.

Everything worked out perfectly fine, she was there on time and life was good. Not to mention the day was beautiful. My point in all of this is that what may seem like a bad situation can bring about unexpected good. I realize losing your keys is a minor problem compared to some. However, sometimes all the little things that can and do go wrong on a daily basis can get us so worked up and frustrated that we miss the goodness or beauty of God that is staring us in the face.

I pray that I will be able to look more often past the stress and trouble of each day to the message of hope and love that God has for me. Be it in a sweet breeze, kind word, or a ray of sun that was ment just for me from my Heavenly Father.

P.S. My keys are now found and safely tucked away in my purse/diaperbag. Just in case you wanted to know they were with my husband in Durango. They had apparently fallen out of my bag and got kicked under the seat of the car.

God Made Mondays!

Welcome to the Randol Family blog. I am excited to share my thoughts and experiences so that they may encourage you other bloggers, and maybe even make you laugh. My hope is that I can be a living testimony of Gods love and grace in our everyday lives.
It is another Monday at the Randol house. Mondays have always seemed to be the hardest day of the week for me. Getting motivated to take on a whatever the week dishes out can pose a challenge at times.
My verse for Mondays is Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made;let us rejoice and be glad in it. I don't want any day to pass that I do not stand in awe of the God who made and loves me. So today I am choosing to believe and obey this verse. Join me, And have a Marvelous Monday!
