Let the sun shine!

As my hubby and I were driving to his doctors appointment this morning I noticed something.  Something I had never noticed before.


Yes, houses!

We have driven down that highway hundreds, if not thousands of times.  I have never EVER noticed these houses before!  You may be thinking, 'well, they must be new'....nope.  They are not.  In fact they were rather old.  The only reason I noticed them this time?  The sun was shining right on them.

That got me thinking....oh boy..I know. got me thinking.  We are like that with people also.  How many people do you pass by each day?  A few?  A few hundred?  A few thousand maybe?  Do you even notice half the people you pass by?  Probably not.  Would you notice them if they were in the 'spotlight'?  Probably.

Why is it that every day we pass by people and never notice?  Do you think maybe God put them in your path for a reason?  Maybe it is just to look up and smile at them, or just to say a quick hello.  Maybe that is all they need to keep them going.  Maybe they are having a really bad day and your smile or your quick hello were enough to lift their spirits and change the outcome of the day.

Don't wait for the sun to shine on them before you notice them...become the sun that shines on them!  
Let your sun shine down on them!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

For Such a Time as This

This post is a sponsored post from Family Christian , all opinions are my own. You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the
