Faith-Filled Friday with Brandi Linai
Have you ever taken a timeout from the craziness of your day?
Thanks for joining us for Faith-Filled Friday with Brandi Linai, one of my
favorite radio personalities.
I’ve always said, and now trying to live, that if we’re too busy to care, we’re
too busy! Today’s blog from Brandi is a great reminder that to carve out
moments to just “be” will bring you a great energy.
Recently my family celebrated a couple of milestones. My grandson King graduated from
kindergarten, and my daughter Lily celebrated turning 5 years old. Quite honestly, all the
festivities have left me exhausted. But, in a good way.
In the midst of a time when it feels like our society is drowning in anxiety, depression,
financial woes, division, and confusion just to name a few, it’s nice when we can carve out
moments that are special, moments that leave us feeling uplifted and hopeful, feeling joy,
and often leave us feeling refreshed.
Maybe there hasn’t been a graduation or birthday in your family recently, but we can still
take a break from the crazy, spiraling world, and create “just because” moments. Grab your
family and go for ice-cream “just because”. Push the couch aside tonight and have a family
dance party in the middle of the living room “just because”. Sometimes waiting for those
milestones to celebrate can leave us feeling like we’re in the humdrum desert of daily
monotony with no spark to excite us. So, create your own spark. One of my favorite quotes
says it perfectly…” Every day may not be a good day, but there’s something to celebrate in
“Each day is a gift God has given us, and each moment of our day is in HIS hands.”
