It hasn't been any secret that I've been a tad frightened at the thought of taking care of three children three and under all day long by myself. I've only mentioned my fear in every other post. The fact that I only have two hands and am getting limited sleep has been mentioned a time or two.
So, you can imagine the smile that came to my face yesterday when I opened up this email from a dear friend. It was titled "Today."
Dear Lord – I ask that You be with my dear friend today as she begins a new adventure in her life with the three little ones You have blessed her with. I pray that You will hold her close today and not let her be overwhelmed by “stuff” that needs to be done. I pray that You would make large tasks seem small and the dusting and vacuuming to be minimal. Please help her to keep everything in line with what You would want her to do. Please guide her to know when she does need to clean and have alone time and when she needs to love on Your children. Thank you for her desire to be a godly mother, wife, and friend. Bless her as she has blessed all of those around her.
In Jesus’ name - Amen
Now, I ask, why should I worry about the tasks before me when I have friends like this and a God who spoke the world into existence?
