A Little at a Time

We enjoyed our short visit with family and friends.  Our friends let us tag along to their grandchild’s soccer game. It was so much fun watching those little petite girly girls aggressively tackling their goal. All the while looking cute as all six year olds are expected to be!

We attended church in Corinth with a sibling.  She has been talking about how awesome her church family is.  After visiting, we are in total agreement.  If you are ever in the Corinth area, drop in for services at Oakland Baptist Church.  You will not be disappointed—unless you want to be totally rejected and ignored. The odds of that happening at this church are not favorable.

After returning home, we began our flooring project.  This time we decided to tackle it a little bit at a time.  We found the job went much faster this way.  Taking a break when fatigue sets in makes for a much more effective outcome.  We humans have a tendency to push ourselves to exhaustion leaving for poor health and work quality.  What is the rush really? I already have the next project planned so might as well not rush.

I have to say I have the best husband ever.  He takes special care not to disturb my sleep even though he is an early riser.  When I awake, I generally find my coffee and paper waiting for me.  How awesome is this man I ask you?

Preparing for race!

Having such a spouse, I found myself voluntarily out of bed and on the road before 6:00 am on a Saturday morning. The men’s shelter he works for was having a 5K fundraiser.  How could I not support him and this ministry?  The time together enjoying the beauty of the Ouachita Mountains in the back drop made for a wonderful early Saturday morning.
The family that races together....this little guy (bottom right) won in his category!

The participants of the 5K ranged from 5 years old to 79.  We were particularly fond of the families that raced together.  One little guy was more excited about finding and capturing a bug than the race around him.  He was as adorable as he proudly announced his find to everyone!  There was a family of four who also captured our hearts.  The five year old totally decked out with matching outfit and spiked hair raced alongside his Dad.  The daughter twirled her baton and cheered us on as her Mom pushed her in her stroller. A very fit and handsome 79 year old gentlemen chatted about his race from the previous weekend and how next year he would be bumped up to the 80 plus racing category.  How is that for a personal challenge?

It is the little things in life that brings us joy and huge precious memories. May we always remember to enjoy each morning a little bit at a time!

“For it is: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that, a little here, a little there.”  Isaiah 28:10
