The One and Only Math Day in May …

… was yesterday.  Hey, if I post about all of them on the day of, you will eventually get bored and stop looking for them on your own.  So, did you notice 5+11=16? 
Also, that was the anniversary of our adoption of May, our Gray Panther. (She likes to think that she’s on the level of King T’Challa of Wakanda from Marvel Comics, hence the nickname.) Right now she is trying to not fall off of my windowsill as she gazes lovingly at all the birds she can’t kill.  So predator. Much hunt. (Sorry, my inner doge slipped out.)
Yesterday was also our friend Daniel’s 18th birthday, meaning he is now completely mature and responsible. Wishing him luck as he navigates adulting.
This year is a scary year for birthdays, as I and quite a few of my friends also born in 2000 are going to turn 16, (!!!!) my friend Emily is turning 20, and of course, Daniel turning 18. Also, my little sister is going to turn 13 in February, and I’m totally questioning reality.  Stressed Out by Twenty-One Pilots is ringing truer every day.

  1. I must confess…I hadn’t realized yesterday was a math day! I need your help for that, Squid! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    P.S. btw….16 might sound scary….but don’t worry, I’ve made it to 19 & it’s not so bad. Life is really just a big adventure. And we’re in the best of hands! =) I think one of the hardest things about growing up is the uncertainty of what the future holds and having to make choices, and the fear and insecurity that creeps in. But lately I’ve been really blessed by the realization that as long as I’m seeking God’s face, I don’t have to worry, because He is a rewarder of those who earnestly seek him. ๐Ÿ™‚ And even when I make a mistake or if I start walking down the wrong road, as I long as I keep seeking Him, and coming back to rest in the shadow of His cross…. He’ll turn me back around. Plus, it’s such a blessing to know that friends are praying for me too, and that God is merciful to us humans. He loves ya Squid, and He’ll lead you!

    “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)

    Have a blessed day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much, Joy, for your wonderfully encouraging comment! You’re so right, God does have control, and I know that I can and should trust him because if I am seeking him, he won’t let me fall. I’m playing a song tomorrow with some of my friends in a talent show, and it is called It Is Well. Not the hymn, but with the same message. It says, “Even though I’m not in control, it is well with my soul.” And I love that line! God knows what we need to hear, and that song rings so truly.
      God bless you!

      1. All the best on the talent show!! That’s a wonderful song!

        Along the same line is a song I heard earlier today called “Just Be Held” by Casting Crowns. It’s sooo good!
