A friend of mine told me that through the educating of her own children, God has taught her many things. I appreciate that sweet lady taking the time from her busy life of being mom to 5 gorgeous kids to encourage me on our journey.
That being said, there is some truth to what she said!
I'm not at all a "fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants" kind of girl. I need structure, and preferably, a schedule. When those things fly out the window, I really don't much care for it.
I had some really good time talking to the Lord today, though. Both this morning as I took Graham and Drew to school, and afterward, when my day started to go down. It wasn't coincidental that I prayed for God to make me flexible today. I prayed, specifically, for God to help me remain calm when things don't go as planned. (This comes after a really rough night and morning last week.)
God might have given today to me as a gift to remind me of what I prayed.
Sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. How we handle those moments is up to us. We can freak out and be upset, which I was tempted to do today, or I could decide to go with the flow.
I chose the latter.
Not that I will always choose to act that way, but I promise you, I will always remember today. I know this isn't life-changing for most of you, and most of you already know this, but I was thankful for the lesson God showed me.
Love to all.
