Just One of Those Days..

I just have one of those days occasionally,,,where I drop everything I touch.
The idea to photograph this little chick getting dressed up was a good one, I thought...


Then this happened,,,,I said a bad word, I think could have neighbors heard me.
It was my favorite butter pat.


It wasn't, the f bomb, I will leave that one  to the politician's.


Over an hour later, I had glued all the pieces I could find and fit.
was the goofy chick worth it?...ummm, no.
The next day I found the chick in another room, the cat thought it was hers.
Of course she did.
Actually, I will change that to YES, as I got to thinking how unimportant "things" are. How we all are broken, and are beautiful anyhow. The intense energy I expelled on the butter pat, was truly a waste.
In a moment, God can take it all away, it's all his anyhow.
I am glad I broke the pat, and now it will be a reminder of "where" to put my mind, the next time I have One Of Those Days.

Hi Marcie, How true your posting is, life is so fragile and can be swept away in one fell swoop. Maybe this is a message to start creating and re-purpose that sweet little butter pat? One never knows, sorry about your dish but like you said maybe just a gentle reminder of where to put the mind. Always learning, always creating. Blessings to you, your chickie is sweet and by the way I have many of those days.

Oh, my, Marcie. Sorry about your butter pat. The last time I was in Wisconsin, I purchased a whole stack of really pretty ones from an antique mall. When I got home to FL, I cleaned them all and carefully put them away. I STILL CAN'T FIND THEM! Can you even believe it? "Of all the things I've ever lost, I miss my mind the most." Yup...that's me! If anyone sees my butter pats, please let me know.
Hugs,
Donna

Marcie, I have many days like that lately. I used to save the shards for making...oh I don't know! I find that broken dishes look nice in my container gardens, so out they go. It is freeing, though, to remember that they are just things. There is so much that is more important! I'm sure the cat had a fun time with your chick!
Hugs, Sherry

Hi sweet Marcie! Bless your heart!!! I am so very sorry about your beautiful butter pat! But, I thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful thoughts! You are so right, "things" are unimportant and we are all broken, yet still beautiful, just like your butter pat. You shared a wonderful lesson that has helped me so much! I know what you mean about expelling intense energy and it being such a waste. I have done that before and always regret it, finding it truly was not worth the upset it caused me. When I have one of those days, I will remember what you shared. I agree, in a moment God can take it all away. Have a blessed day sweet friend! Love, Paula

Such a lovely post! I have days like that every so often (don't we all?) and its hard to remember to keep everything in perspective. Your little butterpat did more to move me in the right direction than any self-help book.

Hugs,

Sweet kitties need silly little yellow chicks to play with...I think your butter pat is charming and put back together like that. We are all a bit cracked but worth saving...thank you God for sending your son...and glue:)
Love Misses Peach at the cozy cottage <><

What a great outlook! It is all just 'stuff'. Thanks for the reminder. Sometimes we just have to take a step back. Warm regards, Connie

I'm sorry it broke.

Glad a lesson learned, and what you said is so true.

Thanks for sharing it, and for coming by to say Hi and encourage me.

Wonderful post and insight, Marcie. I've done the exact same thing with broken china...painstakenly glued it back together, all for naught, and ended up throwing it away. We do waste our time and energy on things are no more than hay and rubble...they have no value in the kingdom, and I do believe the Lord is teaching us to let go of our worldly goods, so to speak, and store up treasures in Heaven instead. Of course, He delights in our pretties, but He may sometimes remove one of them to remind us of who is most important in our lives.

Love your post and your blog...God bless!

Excellent message...yes, it can be taken from us...and given to us..it is HIS choice. Like you said..it is ALL HIS anyway.

I often think about the phrase' "Don't sweat the small stuff..because... it is all small stuff." ( In the GREAT scheme of things.)
Thank you for being so faithful about stopping by.

Love,
Rose
