Generally, I rise at 5 to have some quiet time alone with God and His Word. My children wake around 6 and I.AM.OFF...making breakfast, dressing them, showering/dressing myself, tidying house the house as I go.
Wednesdays are household chore days...the largest being LAUNDRY! So, I sort the tedious mountain that awaits me every week. Today, happens to be bedsheets day too! Yeah! Washing them doesn't bother me...it's the REMAKING...ugh! That counts as a work out!
I will try to dust and clean the bathrooms. I will plan to look over the lesson for Patch Club tonight, assign the skit, practice the music...lay out the kids PeeWee uniforms. I plan to finish the new book my Loverbrains let me buy cheaper on his Kindle, finish a daily chunk of BSF study, BLOG...blog ahead...blog comment...
I'll need to make dinner...start the crockpot around the time I'm feeding the kid's lunch (this is how I often forget to eat lunch, sigh)...Start bread in breadmaker at same time...Put them down for naps...fold and zip about while they sleep...
Set the table, change clothes into teacher uniform, eat dinner as soon as Loverbrain's walks through the door, dress and ZOOM to church...TEACH, LOVE, LISTEN, TEACH...ZOOM home...put Sweet Boobahs to bed, snuggle Loverbrains over the secret ice cream...carry up laundry baskets...ZZZZZZ!
BUT, IF THAT'S NOT THE LORD'S PURPOSE FOR MY DAY...those things won't happen...and I need to be okay with what goes differently (notice I didn't say WRONG)!
I need to remember other important things that I need to fit in before those TASKS...
-GENTLE answers for my Sweet Boobahs.
-Calm and Kindness for my Loverbrains in my attitude this evening.
-Memorizing/Hiding God's Word in my heart throughout the day.
-Cut myself a break if the going gets too tough...It can be done another day!
I want the LORD'S plans to be MY plans!
