Happy Wednesday!

Since I usually write on Wednesdays and Sundays, I’m thinking about creating one title for Wednesdays as I did with Sundays. Everyone seems to use Wisdom Wednesday. Well, as you know, my blogs aren’t always written to inspire. Most of them are about my wonderfully, crazy life. Yeah.. I’ll figure something out.

So how are things going since I resigned? FABULOUS! Part of me keeps saying this is the honeymoon phase, things will get bad. Then I hear God say, “Shaun, this is really it!” A couple of weeks before my last day, I was thinking about how others would respond to my news. I told myself they would say, “Well, you know it’s not going to be easy.” And at that moment God stopped me and asked, “Why can’t it be easy?” This changed my entire thought process. We’re so conditioned to believe every blessing comes with a struggle, yet we say, “With God ALL things are possible.” God let me know then that He had already prepared the way. All I had to do was allow Him to lead. Whew!! Y’all, and I love where He’s taking me. Listen, when He says jump, I don’t ask why, I ask how high! I love adventures and so far this is the wildest ride yet.

Listen, whatever God’s asked you to do or give up, just do it. No questions asked. He’s got you!

Be Blessed

Wednesdays

Wednesday is the apex of a typical work week. Y’all, I live for Wednesdays. Especially Wednesdays after 1:00 p.m. Wednesdays make me feel like no matter what Thursdays or Fridays hold, I will make it.

With that said, I know Wednesday does not have the same meaning for everyone. And for many, it is not the apex of their work week. It’s just another day. You see, I was a shift worker throughout my active duty career. When I worked eight-hour shifts, they were a mixture of day shifts, swing shifts, and mid shifts. Twelve-hour shifts were either 12 hour days or nights. I never had a consistent schedule or many weekends off, so I longed for regular work weeks. I longed to feel normal. So today, I am grateful for this privilege. So grateful for Wednesdays.

It’s the little things that makes me smile and Wednesdays make me smile.
