Picking Up Faith

Sometimes, I’m a klutz!

Not when I am working in the mouth.  *You can breathe a sigh of relief.*  But, oh boy, when I am studying with a pencil, notecard, ipad, and textbook in my hand, lap, arm, elbow, lap . . .

Things sometimes fall.

So I learned a new trick!

Yes, of course, pick them up!  But first, I give those silly little trinkets a name.  My pencil is ‘Mind.’ My notecards are ‘Strength,’ ‘Energy,’ and ‘Excitement.’  My ipad is ‘Self’ – I try my best not to drop that one.  So now, every time I bend down to pick up a dropped piece of clutter, I pick up a tidbit of Hope, Energy, and Strength!

Now where did my Mind go? cute-wink-smiley
