Social media can make a Christian feel alone

In this world of social media, everyone knows everything; or at least everyone knows what you put out there. We see our friends and family posting beautiful care free pictures and we think to ourselves “gosh, I wish my life was as good as theirs.” We ended up liking the post or picture and we begin to feel down and out. Soon that feeling turns into a feeling that no one can relate to the problems we have.

This is the time when it’s important that as a Christian you have someone you can talk to…someone who share your level of love for Christ. Life is tough already and traveling this life alone just makes it that much harder.

Have a great evening. PJSLB

Elementary chapel at First Presbyterian Dayschool

Today, my youngest and her class got to lead chapel today at FPD. It was awesome to see kids being able to learn about Christ in a safe and loving environment. My family is grateful for the blessing that is FPD. PJSLB

The verse they were reciting is John 19:24

They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

One day the stress of your child’s schedule will go away.

On the surface that sounds good. I mean, no more having to wake up extra early on a Saturday for practice (softball, baseball, basketball, football, etc.). I used to dread it as well but now i am beginning to realize just how precious this moment is. One day they will grow up and move on. The craziness of the schedule will be gone only to be left with quietness. Take advantage of the time spent with your kids. It goes away and once its gone, you are only left with the memories. Trust me, I am midst of this surreal feeling right now. God Bless. PJSLB
