Gobble, Gobble!

Good Funday Morning! It’s Thanksgiving Week! I realize 2020 has been, well, an overly strange year, but we still need to be thankful. I urge you to check on one another during the holidays and practice some self-care as well. To kick off the holiday week, here’s a fun video for you. Be thankful, blessed…

You ARE important

Happy Funday! I saw this quote and, knowing what a hard year 2020 has been, wanted to share it to encourage you. Yes, life is difficult. And despite the disagreements, there are some things we may not be able to change, but can be more sympathetic about. Someone will be President, COVID and mental health…

Who’s on Your Ark

Happy Funday! Do you often feel like your having to beg others to act? Serve on our board, make a donation, volunteer for the event, etc. Consider this, if it comes down to begging, do we want them on our ark? Noah was laughed at while he built the ark for 120 YEARS!! Yikes! And…

Battle Plan for Depression

Good Funday Morning! I heard a most excellent devotional on overcoming depression yesterday. From a teenager! He’s a new Christian and already digging into the Word and sharing his testimony. Maybe, if like me you have/do struggle with depression, this will give some hope. Here’s his scriptural outline: Mt 11:28 Take your burdens to the…

5 x 5 Rule

Happy Funday! Do you ever get overly caught up in emotion over something, only to realize after, it wasn’t that big of a deal? Sometimes I think adults revert to terrible two temper tantrums! Just look at this year! 2020 has been one of the craziest times. These times are temporary but some are making…

Anxiety

Good Funday Morning! Yes, I know I’m a day late, but when the computer crashes, there’s not much I can do about it. But with new laptop at hand, I am back at it. Today’s topic: Anxiety. This year has made even the most stable person perhaps a little anxious. Look at the graphic and…

Be Nice

Happy Funday! Guess what National Day it is?! It’s “Be Nice” day! So, I challenge you to choose to be nice all day to every person that crosses your path and do what is within your resources.. At the least give others a smile and go from there. One nice thing you can do is…

More compliments, less anger

Good Funday Morning! Quiz Time: How long has it been since someone made you angry with their words? Yesterday, 2 days ago, a few minutes ago? Anger is a response to stimuli, a response we can learn to control. Try this next time someone says something mean or annoying. Genuinely compliment them. It will change…

Thank You Notes

Happy Funday! Are you thankful? Do you let others know your thankful? More specifically do you send thank you notes? As part of grant writing classes I facilitate, I point out how important a hand written note is to tell a funder thank you. It’s becoming a lost art. The cartoon might express how you…

Tomorrow’s a New Day

Good Funday Morning! Did you do something you really wanted or needed to this weekend? Did you make big plans but they fell through? Were you disappointed with yourself for not completing something? Guess what? You can let it go. Today and tomorrow are new opportunities to do great things, even if they are small…
