Wake up. If you thought a six-year-old and a red tabby cat couldn’t take up an entire king-sized bed, you were wrong. COFFEE.
Nicky and Michael off to school. I need new pants for gym class, mom. My sneakers don’t fit anymore, mom. I need a book from the library, mom. When are my new glasses gonna be in, mom? Kiss me goodbye. Yes, Michael, you have to. Have a great day. I love you.
Breakfast dishes in. Dishwasher started. Load of laundry in. Justin’s medication, Justin’s boots. Need to call the nurse back. Need to fill out that school form. Wish I had time for a walk. Wish I had time to just sit here. I should eat breakfast. I have nine unanswered messages. Justin! Need to teach phonics, spelling, counting.
Working at school after lunch. Do I have anything clean to wear? What’s for dinner? Jeff is in London this week. Not cooking. Perdue Simply Smart chicken nuggets. I have salad that looks acceptable.
Music lessons today at 3:30. Don’t forget. Again.
Breathe. All of this and none of this is possible without starting the day grounded in truth and perspective. What are you whining about? MOVE ON. I am God for crying out loud. If you come to an obstacle, I will HELP you. Because I AM good and I am glorious and I LOVE you.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen. The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen.”
