One of a Kind

God only made one of you. That means you’re a limited edition, a rare find. You’re unique…and that’s a good thing. I hope you embrace you today, because no one else can fill that role. You matter and you’re His beautiful creation, so live today with a smile on your face, knowing that. You are loved.

Have a great day. 😀

You Never Know Where He Might Show Up

Tennis has been my favorite sport to play since I was a kid. (Full disclosure, it’s been the only sport I’ve been any good at…which no doubt contributes to my interest in playing it.)

As an adult, it’s been great to get to keep playing tennis and I get out every week to serve it up. Lately, I’ve been able to play with my son as well. He’s on the high school team and it brings back memories for me, plus it’s just really cool to see him continue to improve his game.

In all of this, I feel a strong sense of gratitude – a big part of that, just to be able to still play the game I love so much. To the point where, particularly when I’m playing matches against others in the weekly sessions, the tennis court has become one of the places where I feel closest to God.

It’s become my place to really say thank you to Him, often. Like I should be doing more often in everyday life, but too often don’t. It’s also challenged me to focus more on the ups in life than the downs.

Funny how God shows up in different ways, and different places, than we might expect.

Have a great day!

The Right Tool for the Job

After trying to saw through a piece of 4×4 wood with a dull pruning saw the other day, I realized this truly was the wrong tool for the job!

At the same time, it made me realize how often I do that in life, in general. For example, when something stressful comes around, I try to handle it or figure it out on my own. Problem is, that’s also using the wrong tool for the job! God has such great wisdom for us, such great strength, such great peace. It comes in His word, it comes in talking with Him, it comes in turning to Him during these times.

Gotta remind myself to do that more often. 🙂
