Choosing Life Day 2


Okay, so whenever I actually START something, it never seems to fail that something totallly messes up my intentions. The difference this time? My attitude. I didn't let it get to me (definately with the grace of God).

I had prepared to get up and going this morning at 6:30 am, do my devotional, go for a run, and shower along with some cleaning for later on in the day. Well, at 9:00 lastnight our 2 year old started running fever and crying. It lasted on and off all night long. I got no sleep, and my mom came over with medicine and Whataburger at 2:00 AM and watched The Blind Side with us until 5:00. My sweet husband was at work.

I fell asleep at 6:30 and woke up at 10:00 feeling somewhat refreshed and ready for the day. I prayed and took my time to be thankful for having a mess to clean up in our cozy home, and spent 30 minutes cleaning it up. Then, I cooked Pasta Primavera for lunch. I didn't get a lot done, but I got something done.

I am learning that God didn't call me to be perfect (pefection is why this sort of thing would've usually overwhelmed me for "ruining"  my plans.) He just calls me to be thanful and faithful.

So as for today: something that could've totally ruined my day and my mood, didn't at all. Today has been pleasent, relaxed, and very rainy...just the sort of day to hang out with our sick little man and watch movies, and that's just what we did!
