What Is Your Someday?

What is your someday? Oh, we all have them, don't we? When is the last time you pondered your someday?

Someday I will go to Paris.

Someday I will go visit my aunt.

Someday I will write that book.

Someday I will call my sister.

Someday I will purchase my mom a gift.

Someday I will seek out my daughter.

Someday I will tell my dad I'm sorry.

Someday I will go to church.

Someday I will find out what all this faith stuff is.

Someday I will..fill in the blank. What is your someday that is waiting? You know what happens to those somedays? They never come. Sure, we ponder them, but it ends there. We think we have more time. We see it as not important for today, but what happens when our someday gets lost in yesterday?

We all have somedays.

Someday I will ask her to marry me.

Someday I will go for that promotion.

Someday I will spend more time with my mom.

Someday I will take more time with my children.

You know what happens? Time passes and our children grow up. Mom passes away. That promotion goes to someone else who isn't waiting for a someday. By the time we get around to asking for her hand in marriage she grew tired of waiting and found a fella who wasn't afraid to move now.

Someday I will move on.

Someday I will change.

Someday I will start fresh.

Someday I will be a better wife.

Someday I will stop looking back.

The people in our lives are more important than the stuff in our lives we continue to accumulate. Success isn't climbing the later as the world teaches us. Success is being true to who you are and living your life to the fullest. We don't have to live an incomplete life. With Jesus, He completes us. He has given us dreams and has instilled us with gifts. He has our entire life planned out. Did you know that? He only wants the best for you. Friends, stop dragging your feet and making excuses. Being humble and meek isn't being weak. It's showing the strength and sweet grace of God.

I encourage you to make a list of your somedays and pray over them. Ask the Lord for His guidance. His will is for you to live a gracious, extraordinary life filled and running over with joy! Get started. You will find yourself pleasantly surprised at the things the Lord has for you today.

You know what I think? I think those somedays are kind of selfish. In those somedays we dream about we often say that we are just too busy right now. When things slow down then I will, but things never tend to slow down. In many ways we just continue to get busy. What are we busy with? The things we want to be busy with. We let those somedays go because we have taken today for granted. We might as well add tomorrow on there too, because we just assume we have tomorrow.

Someday I will begin eating right.

Someday I will start that diet.

Someday I will begin exercising.

Someday I will try for that marathon.

Think about how many somedays we have passed up. What has slipped away from us because we waited for someday, a day that never came? We spend our days grieving the past and wishing for peace. We put off what could be accomplished today for tomorrow. When tomorrow comes we are too busy and it gets pushed back even further. Why do we allow ourselves to take those around us for granted?

Don't wait for someday to tell your daddy your sorry.

Don't wait for someday to ask your momma for forgiveness.

Don't wait for someday to ask for a second chance at love.

Don't wait for someday to live.

What is it that your waiting for? Make today that perfect time. Enjoy this moment right now and live as if the next may not come. The longer we wait the harder it is. It's like going to the lake and finding that the water is ice cold. We either step in toe by toe or we just dive on in. Friends, it's time to dive! It's time to live before this life passes us up. We don't want to one day be sitting back thinking of all the somedays we passed up. That's a life of regret. Get out of that rocker and take the steps to grab hold of life today and actually live it!

"For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to rear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace." Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The Illusionist's Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

I want to begin this review sharing two reviews I was blessed to do. The Butterfly and The Violinand A Sparrow in Terezin. For me these two novels were masterpieces. Works of such exquisite beauty. They showed that Kristy Cambron is gifted with the pen, a master storyteller. They remain two of my all-time top favorites. 
It was for this reason I was thrilled to be receiving a copy of The Illusionist's Apprentice. Once again Cambron shows us a masterpiece of bringing a story to readers that speaks of faith and our Lord. Although throughout the novel these aspects are not boldly proclaimed, but are masterfully weaved throughout the story. 
Magic and illusion are not the same. I love how she brings this truth. Love that the main character was an apprentice to the master of illusion. She takes the use of being an apprentice and walks that road with integrity and hope. When we choose to walk with Christ we are His apprentices. We are to walk as the main character, Wren Lockhart walked…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…
