I had many wonderful things planned last week, then it continued to change. I think all can relate. You try to plan, have a little space and SURPRISE – something changes!
I started with extra little visitors, ages 3 and 5. When I went to pick them up – they were in the driveway with one big brother and their baby sister. Car seats and bags all ready to go for their first ride and visit with me. Another of those moments where you say, “Where is the camera?” Yes, it was home charging. That was such joy to see.
They had fun finding the cats, pretending I was their pony and asking if I had more food! Later in the week, their grandma dropped off this photo from a previous visit.
I thought pony rides just did me in then realized something else was going on with my body. It’s good to finally be getting a little energy back a week later. For a non-napper – I definitely napped a lot.
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9 NLT
It had me returning to something I used to do more regularly…asking, “What needs to be accomplished next Lord?” By last Friday, all He said was rest and that was enough.
This week – I’m going to continue with that question. Because sometimes – we don’t need to do it all.
