II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Lesson of the Day...


Sounds so simple but it's something I HAVE GOT to learn to do.
I am way too serious and focused and "scheduled" sometimes. Those are all great traits to have when you need them...but can be a detriment to my personality at times too.
Today is the first day of our Summer Schedule (also first day to babysit Fallon) and I'm already about 2 hours behind "Schedule"!!! AUGH!
By the way...you guys would CRACK UP if you saw my "Schedule". I have my weeks planned out to the MINUTE. Every minute of every day. It takes an entire sheet of paper in 12 pt. font Times New Roman with TWO columns!! HA HA
I've already realized there are tons of things I forgot to put on there too...like the time it takes to go to the bathroom, clean up dog poop from the carpet, make a toaster streudal, answer a phone call, put the clothes in the dryer, get dressed, answer a text message, plunger out a toilet...etc. (yes, those are all from this morning).
Ahhh.....the world isn't going to stop if things don't get done the way I had hoped and planned right?
Sure...my way is the BEST way...but I guess I can live with the "just okay" way occasionally. :o)

Agh, dog poop first thing in the morning, a pet hate of mine. Thankfully Custard hasn't done that indoors since he was tiny.

(BTW there was a really bad pun in there, sorry.)

I'm enjoying my purposefully less-busy life lately. Yes, the thoughts still pop into my head that I should do this and that or the other, but I kick them out and tell myself "not right now! Instead I am going to play this game or read this book or go for a bikeride (whatever) with whichever daughter is asking and enjoy it! I don't wan't their youngster years to pass me by because I was too worried about MY plans instead of their desires." Yes, we will eat, and yes we'll have to go to the grocery store, but there is more dust in my house lately, and I am hesitantly accepting that :)
I hope u can catch on to this slower 'freight train' too. It is rewarding :)
