Last Thursday evening we heard this statement: I have to get to school at 6am sharp tomorrow because we get to play with Play-Doh. We tried to convince him that he misunderstood the time for 8am, the normal school start time. Unfortunately, our 4 year old was up at 6am the following morning. Immediately he reminded me, “We’ve to be there at 6am sharp.” It was not worth going into the whole 8am thing again. The point: Friday morning Play-Doh gets the kids to school on time. Why? Because kids love Play-Doh.

So, what about you? Are you working in an area that is like Friday morning Play-Doh? Do you wake up in the morning looking forward to the day ahead? Do you feel like you have been given an amazing opportunity in what you do each day? Of course everyone has a bad day, but do you LOVE what you do?

Confession: I love what I do – every day, all the time. We have so many awesome opportunities at Faith Promise that every day is like Friday morning Play-Doh. Are you working in that area that you love to get up for? If not, do whatever you can to find it! You will not regret it.

What gets you out of bed each morning?

Play-DohPS – My friend Chuck Carringer, Pastor of Family Ministries at Faith Promise helped with this idea…thanks Chuck!

    If I played w/ play doh at work, I would be excited too! Does anybody else find it hard to LOVE what you do everyday?

    I love my job 90% of the time, but the other 10% is tough. Maybe the other 10% makes me really appreciate the 90% that I LOVE.

    While I find little joy in my 9-5, it provides the opportunity to do what I love outside of the office and that’s what gets me up in the morning.

    I think I’d have to say that cereal is what gets me out of bed each morning – especially Lucky Charms. I love the stuff.

    I like my job too, but I’ve got to start off with some cereal.
