Today was the day I’d planned to cross so many things off my to-do list.
Oh, the best-laid plans…
Bud and Ruby did get their baths. In hindsight, that would have looked much more impressive if I’d thought to give each dog their own individual line on my to-do list.
What created the snag in my day boiled down to one little flash of time when I clicked on the “resume episode” button for Season Two, This is Us.
In a nano-second, my to-do list fluttered out the window.
In an attempt to accomplish something, I streamed episodes as I cleaned dog ears and listened to the next episodes while I sprayed, lathered, rinsed, and dried both Bud and Ruby.
The problem is, here I sit…trying to pull a rabbit out of my hat.
Search as I may, that rabbit is MIA.
Luckily, I do have a prayer to share.
It feels very appropriate for today since this prayer asks God for help learning patience. Specifically, this prayer asks for patience with self.
Lord, teach me to be patient with life, with people, and with myself. I sometimes try to hurry too much, and I push for answers before the time is right. Teach me to trust Your sense of timing rather than my own and to surrender my will to Your greater and wiser plan. Amen
Isaiah 40:31 (NHEB) But those who wait for the Lord will renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint.
Love and peace, Y’all.
