Welcome Back

Welcome back to you my 2 readers & welcome back to myself from an unintentional blogging break.  This break was brought to you by “funk”. A funk I was in. Privately.  It’s not THAT kinda blog.  I was feeling recluse & not interested in even sharing ho-hum boring daily stuff on here.

A funk where bloggin, scrapping, snappin pictures & many other things I love simply didn’t bring me joy.  There was no joy so there was no desire.  Honestly my desire to do many things were nill. My house showed it, my laundry heap resembled it & my children would speak to my lack of patience.

A valuable lesson was learned b/c of this funk. A lesson this song Day After Day by Kristian Stanfill speaks of. I’ve listened to this often in the past weeks.  Here’s a snippet:

“Men will try to rule the world You made
But we know power is Yours alone to give and take
A day will come when every knee will bow
And every tongue confess that You are Lord
Both now and forever

Day after day our God is reigning
He's never shaken, my hope is in the Lord
Time after time our God is faithful
Trustworthy Savior, my hope is in the Lord

The fear of man and what they plan will fade
But we know You alone are God of every day
Like the flowers, man will rise and fall
But You are everlasting, never ending God eternal”

Your joy can not be found behind a camera lens, in front of a computer screen or with paper, scissors & pictures. You can not place your happiness, joy or allow your overall attitude to be determined by the actions of others.  Not a friend. Not a spouse. Not a single human. When there are struggles in your life there is only ONE that you should place your hope in. And He will fill you with peace.  He will provide hope when there’s none to be found. He is the answer to all things.

So, GOOD NEWS I’m on my outta the funk.  (or trying…depends on the day….rrrrr….hour) I found my happy place. Adjusted my attitude. And re-oriented my focus where it should have been all along. Upward.

I started my bloggie catch-up with a post below that is soooo “last year”. :) And more to come….
