Looking Back to Go Forward

In the words of Junie B. Jones (a great series of books if you haven’t read them!), I (that’s Boykin) felt pretty slumpy today. I’m tired of being at home all the time, it’s raining (again) and I miss my friends. I miss my church. So I looked for something to cheer me up.

(Our playground swing)

I felt a little better after watching that. Sometimes looking back nudges you forward. So I looked for something else. This is a piano in Montreal. It was just there, waiting for someone (or two people) to play it.

“Ok,” (I said to my phone), “What else ya got?” AND NOW I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER!

(Remember we tried not to sing Jingle or Frosty or Rudolph songs in church but sometimes we did?)

When you feel slumpy, what do you remember? What encourages you?
