Single Mother’s Chronicles:
Weekends… when I was young I couldn’t wait for Fridays, I just knew my life was going to be so much better because Friday meant that the next two days would not consist of me going to or being in school, yes, those good ole weekends. Now, although I am much older, I realized my life is not that much fun as it used to be, but it is far from boring. I never thought in a million years that when I became an adult, I would be comfortable with my non-theatrical life. I always considered myself the life of the party, back in my younger days you know 😊, but now I am more relaxed and at peace, thank You, Jesus. I just enjoy spending time with my son, whether he and I go out or just stay home and “chill-lax” (for those who don’t know what chill-lax means, it when you just chill and relax at the same time) 😉 or just spending time with Kayesha, yes that’s me. The simplicity of life truly is a blessing that many people miss out on by trying to be a part of too many things and by doing so much of nothing. When we learn to take time out for ourselves to enjoy the simple things in life, such as the breath we breathe, the house or apartment that we live in, the feet to walk, our senses to smell, taste and see, the heart to love and the list can go on, but you catch my drift; we take these things for granted because we have them, but if we didn’t have them we would be complaining and wishing for them; so why not take advantage of them today by enjoying the serenity of early morning peace and the fresh air before it’s polluted with the busyness of the day, scripture and prayer time with Jesus (this is actually number one on my list), showing a stranger a heartfelt greeting and so forth. If I didn’t take the time out to get acquainted with this spiritual adult me, I would not have known that I love to hear birds chirping and playing with each other, or falling in love with God’s creation, Earth! You may find this weird, but it was cool to me, I hugged a tree lol, which I enjoyed, and it touched my soul, my son said I was crazy and laughed, but then he joined in, so that made both of us crazy 😊. This weekend you should do something chill-laxing, whether that’s going for a peace walk, or doing something creative in-doors. Enjoy the simple things that give lasting memories and the peace from God.
“Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So, if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.”
– 1 Timothy 6:6-8 (NLT). In Jesus name, Amen.
