I LOVE having things in order, always knowing what is coming next, having my list of things to do and just doing them! While this is a great way to get things done, it is not always so realistic with kids! I have to just LET GO of my plans and relax a little. Kids will poop right as I’m ready to go out the door, throw a fit right in the middle of a shopping trip, fall asleep when it isn’t nap time or really need to get some wiggles out in the middle of a car ride!!! It is good for me to remember Proverbs 16:9 “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.” God is control of my days (even the things on my “to do list”) I just need to LET GO and trust that His ways are better than mine!
