Fall Break: Monday
I’m not sure what it is about birthday weeks and fall break coinciding, but I usually wake up very tired the Monday morning after.
I celebrate another year with my child-boy, and also wonder where the time is going.
This is the first year it’s really beyond me as to how we’ve gotten this far so fast.
I wonder if I’LL ever grow into everything I want to be…in time.
And, then, there is grace, and God, and His help…and I realize how utterly dependent I am on that–I have to be.
I am so thankful for a great Dad in our “picture” who “rounds me out”.
You know, it occurred to me when I was praying this morning, as I have for the last weeks, “Lord, make me what I need to be for my family.” that I’m just not enough, and I never will be.
That is almost a mute prayer. A good one, but perhaps one that needs adjustment.
The prayer, perhaps, is better prayed, “Lord, keep me humble enough that you can flow through me and just be all they need. Keep me in a position to use me as often as you can. Be everything we need.”
Simple little difference. Something I knew already, but something very free-ing. It’s not all up to me.
Well, all the deep thought I have this morning. Daisy Dog is barking...I suppose it is time for breakfast!
Do you have special plans for your Fall Break week? Have a great one…take some great photos, smile, get your chores in order (don’t all moms try on fall break?) and relax!
