Soccer Mom

Cheering Section

Fortunately for me (and my family), I never had any music recitals! I  probably would have failed miserably at them. However, I was in soccer, and those were fun times! We only won 2 games. The first & the last. We weren’t that great at playing, but we did our very best & had fun at them. I remember that my family would come to the games & even though we weren’t very talented little kids, the parents still cheered us on like we were in the World Cup!

We need families to lift us, support us & encourage us.

The Family: A Proclamation to the World says:

 “Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.”

Storm

Storm

Life gets rainy sometimes & we want the Lord to take away the rain. But instead- he lets it rain because we need it & gives us an umbrella. I feel like those umbrellas can be our family who help us get through hard times. Many times I’ve been driving with my brother, or my mom & we’ll just talk about whatever is going on. It doesn’t take the problem away, but at that moment the problem doesn’t need to be solved. What we need to know is even through our trials & hard times, we are loved.

The pitter-patter of rain
Falling to the ground
Wetting my hair
Bringing joy to my soul
Cleansing the earth.
Lightning flashes
Thunder booms
Bringing fear to some
Exhilaration to others
Music to my ears.
The storm slows
Then fades away
A fresh smell
Fills the land
A stripe of colors
Lights the sky.
The colors will fade
The smell covered
Till the rain comes again
To make the earth
Clean again.
