Romans 8 vs 28
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Yesterday I read a beautiful quote that was along the lines of this verse. I smiled and sent it to a friend and carried on with my day.
Within the hour the school called to say there was a lice breakout at school and I needed to fetch our oldest daughter. It was a terrible working mom moment as I had to go against my inner values of wanting to complete my assigned tasks with excellence, having to run out of the office whilst shouting apologies to my colleagues.
Once home though, after the hair washing ordeal was behind us and we sat on the couch smelling like tea tree oil, I was able to spend the morning cuddled with my daughter, which was better than being at work, by far!
This morning we had to wash hair for the third time before school and work and dropping the eldest at my mom. It wasn’t pleasant. There was no time to even finish my cup of coffee so I packed my coffee in my bag only to arrive here at work and see that in the rushed process it wasn’t closed tightly and has messed over all my things.
I’m expectant of how He will turn this day around for me, choosing to be joyful after a very grumpy start to the day.
I’m thankful to be a mommy. I’m thankful to have a job that let’s me run out of the door. I’m thankful for a mom close enough to look after my baby girl this morning. I’m thankful for the rain. I’m thankful that there was still enough coffee left for one cup.
This is still the day that the Lord has made, I’m choosing to be joyful and be glad in that.
