Let’s eat cake.

June 13, 2012

Can I just stay here.

right here in front of this screen…right here with you….or maybe we could go to the pool?

Can we just eat cake and celebrate that  the homeschool evaluator just left and she loved our portfolios…done and done.

That she said I have done an “amazing job…this is all more then enough”

Can we just ignore the rest of the world… can we just go to the pool together and treat each other like civilized humans…knowing each others weakness and yet not using them to hurt each other?

Because that is the essence of being civilized…knowing others weakness’…knowing there are things you don’t like about another person and getting over it and most certainly not using it to harm them.

Let’s just go.. and be His people…His people eating cake.

Because I am tired.…and it is amazing when people can say that what you are doing is ” your PFW is just a stupid prayer meeting”.

and even if it was stupid…. then why tell me?

Why else tell me, unless you only wanted to hurt me…why else?…Did you want me to stop?

if you say the word stupid enough times…do you think it will make me change?…do you think I will agree?

I am too tired to correct you.

Too tired to make you stop.

Because I just want to eat cake by the pool… and not hear you tell me that I care about stupid things.

So when my friend calls and says…”I just took cake out of the oven…can we eat it together… how did your homeschool evaluation go?”

and another friend calls to ask if they can” help with the  wedding bird matting  project”

my answer is…”let’s go eat it at the pool …. we can work together for sure!”

because I am tired…and I am tired of hearing things I do are stupid.

    Most definitely NOT stupid. It’s just that,

    “But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.”
    1 Corinthians 2:14

    Enjoy the cake, my friend.

      Hey thanks so much. I hesitated sharing it… but it’s real life and I want people to know it isn’t always just happy cheery stuff… this is real life but what I know is all things work together so a new day and a new perspective.
      cheers to you!

    Found you through “walk with Him Wednesday” and did read your links to previous posts ( I usually don’t cuz who has time for that…but I had a feeling). I love your heart, and honest message. I recently joined a prayer group that seems to be a home based version of your PFW and so relate with the blessings you spoke of.
    Congrats of finishing your homeschooling year and eating that cake.

    i don’t know why people tear-down like that. don’t we teach our kids to close our mouths to hurtful words?
    i like your cake and company idea. shake off the dust to naysayers!
