In my devotion today, I talked about plans that flop, and I know that might be a trigger for you. It sure is for me! I’ve had plenty of plans that flopped… or at least went awry.
A pregnancy that didn’t happen on my time schedule.
A job I wanted but didn’t get.
A dream fulfilled that I thought would be glorious ended in pain.
But here’s what I’ve learned. For every flop and failure, there’s still joy and learning in the journey. I want to flip our flops today and insert a little fun in celebration of the joy along the way.
I’m really visual, so I thought I’d share some of the happiness of the day I described in the devo. Here are some pics of Cheri and I on the day that I didn’t make it to the place where the seals hung out. We still had a great time and burned a bunch of calories to boot!
Cheri and I resting after our battle with the tide. Tired but happy. How can you not smile in the CA sunshine?
The quiet waters in the marina were my jam!
See our cute little otter friends? I was in love.
You can probably see how much Cheri and I enjoy time together, and we’d love for you to join us for serious conversation laced with giggles! After you enter to win a prize package by leaving your comment, click here to listen to the latest episode of our Grit ‘n’ Grace podcast.
As an author, one of the most fun times of my day is to go to the mailbox and find a sample book from a publisher.
