Upon hearing of the weather predictions for snow as I left work yesterday I made the statement “Ah I hope they don’t call school off tomorrow.” Planning to do some deep heavy duty cleaning and purging on my ever so precious day off for this week I selfishly wanted nothing to stand in my way.
This morning my youngest came barreling in to say “Mom school is cancelled!!!” My first thought turned to “Thank you Lord for knowing what is best. What was I thinking yesterday?” As a nurse there have been very few times on inclement weather days that I haven’t had to drag my children out of bed and drive them to a sitters so I could go on to work. Nurses don’t get snow days unless a school nurse. This is actually a rare gem of a day, a bonus day in our ever so busy schedule that the girls and I can stay in our jammies and not have to rush here and there.
I was reminded that our first thought, snap judgments, what we think we want, our selfishness, and our pride get in the way of God’s perfect plan. He always knows so much better than I do.
Proverbs 19:21 “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
Now off to do some cleaning and hanging out with my precious blessings on our bonus day together!!!
