A Day without Mood Swings

Our trip to Magic Mountain 9/14/15: full of challenges that never moved us!!
Our trip to Magic Mountain 9/14/15: full of challenges that never moved us!!

Yesterday was a blast!! I spent the day with my daughters at Magic Mountain, and I don’t think we’ve ever bonded so well before, and the funny thing was a bunch of things went wrong, which would usually trigger frustration, irritation, arguments, etc., but even though things went wrong in the natural, nothing disrupted us in the spiritual.

Amongst the things that went wrong…

my free tickets were for a Six Flags in Vallejo, so the tickets were not accepted (we had to buy them);

both my sandals (with six straps each) flew off on the second ride we went on (X2), so I walked away barefooted;

we didn’t get on our first ride until 1:20 pm (and the park closed at 6:00 pm);
etc.,

and that ‘etc’ contained a long list of mishaps, but nothing changed our moods, which was a first for us. In the past, when we’ve been together, if something went wrong, one of us would get grumpy, which would set off another one’s mood and so on, but yesterday, none of our moods changed. It was so peaceful!

The only way I can explain our wonderful experience in the midst of confusion is that, deep within, we each knew there was a much bigger picture, and with Katie having moved out, we each appreciated our time together much more.

From the moment we all got together, the giggling and laughter began. It was so good, so needed, so wanted. It just was a wonderful way to put a lot of things into perspective.

As I live through life, God’s word just makes more and more sense. He really IS amazing! Oh, and as soon as we are able to afford it, we’re going to see “War Room;” Carolyn and I’ve seen it, but Katie hasn’t. I’m super excited to bond with my girls with that movie.

If you have anyone in your life who’s walked away from God, don’t worry; they’ll be back! Trust me; I know!
