I'm not ready. I'm not ready for 2012 quite yet. I don't even have a new calendar yet! I'm not ready to get up early when it's 15 degrees outside, I'm not ready for the second semester of 6th grade, and I am certainly not ready for Kate to turn six!
It doesn't really matter though, whether I am ready or not. It's coming. So I can fight it by complaining and whining or I can trust the Lord to see me through.
I went to this blog today and this was exactly what I needed to read. There will not be peace unless it comes from Him. No matter how much I try to force it and plan it I just need to trust Him to provide it.
That's what I am doing. Trusting Him and thanking Him that I have an almost six year old, that I have a sixth grader and that he has provided a (mostly) warm home for us with lots of love and blankets and hot chocolate.
If I start complaining or whining, would someone please remind me of what I just wrote?
