I don’t know about your mom, but mine is always right.
My typical routine at night is after the kids go to sleep I call friends and family so I don’t feel alone.
Last night, I called mom, and had one of those long talks. As we were about to hang up, she out of the blue says…“You know Amanda, you are free to be happy.”
I cried. She reminded me that I made it through a valley recently. I may have little things to complain about at the end of the day. I may be tired, a little lonely and my kids may be “spirited”, but I have the choice to be happy. You do too.
We are all free to be happy.
I am reminded every day about that life I want to lead by my baby girl, Zoe Grace. She’s the third, I call her my “Exclamation Point!” She’s a bold red head full of life.
Her first name, Zoe, means Abundant Life. Her middle name, Grace, means Unmerited Favor.
I want that Abundant Life that God has planned for us. It’s a choice you can make everyday, not to dwell on the bad stuff. You are free to be happy! So smile!
At the end of the week we all have things we can complain about. Tell me what you have to be happy about.
For King & Country and Humpty Dumpty
Had a great time with the guys from the new band, "For King & Country" today in the studio! They are most known for being Christian artist, Rebecca St. James', little brothers. Now they are trying to make a name for themselves, and they did so because of "Humpty Dumpty". Seriously, that story inspired their band name, and their new song, "Busted Heart." Listen to the full interview to find out what "Humpty Dumpty" has to do with it! If you're looking for the book that a lister called about it's here: May I see the King? by Julie Daubenspeck.
