Do you remember the post I wrote a few days ago about worry, and how I was choosing to trust, even if the plan we had made for one of our children seemed to be falling apart? Well, it did fall apart, and I’m still trusting, but not doing a very good job of it. It’s so much easier to write about it than to do it.
I woke up this morning and within moments, it all came back to me. I lay there with not-so-lovely thoughts swirling through my mind – thoughts that are really rooted in fear. I’ve learned that much. It’s not that I knew with 100% certainty that the plan we were making was the perfect one, although it seemed amazing to us, it’s that now we are back at the beginning with no idea of what to do next.
My strategy for the day is to rest in the certainty that my child is loved – by us, by our amazing God, and that he has a good plan for this child.
Thankfully, Hannah is here for a visit and our days are filled with conversation and good friends stopping by to visit over coffee. Yesterday she helped me homeschool the little boys and today we are taking Bee out on a coffee date.
One more quick thing, if you are thinking about attending The Refresh Conference in Seattle, please come. It’s going to be amazing and wonderful. I’m speaking in a general session and offering two workshops, one with a fantastic therapist, Megan Clarke (who also happens to by my cousin), and one with Mary Ostyn, of Owlhaven fame. I can’t emphasize enough how life-giving Refresh is. I hope I’ll see you there.
I’m running out to an appointment – I’ll try to add a fun photo to this post later.
Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends.
