Also, the recycling is piling up way too high in the kitchen today. There is still laundry on the kitchen table from last week. The baby needs his flu shot. The paperwork needs delivering to Reef’s new preschool. Bailey needs a bag of candy for a school project. Ah, and it’s our niece’s and nephew’s 3rd birthday this weekend.
There is always something to do.
Like, right away. Not like, Add that to the list…but more like, OMG I better do that right now! I forgot!
Pay the bills, get the groceries (NO really, like, there’s NO food), edit photos for clients, sign up for Christmas mission work, wash the clothes (the kiddos have no socks)….
But somehow it’s okay. In the midst of the moments where I want to scream and run away because I.just.can’t….God shows up.
Maybe you think of God as not God like I think of God, but we can agree on Grace, I’m pretty sure. Because we’ve both seen leaves swirl, and we both know they can’t go back. We both can see it’s time to move forward, and even when we get it wrong or we slow down or take steps back, we do.
