This week has me feeling like throwing in the towel.
I’m talking total surrender.
Too much time off for Christmas break.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it.
But when the schedule gets thrown out of whack for more than a day,
it takes that much time to get back into the groove.
One kid got into it pretty well,
she’s been here before and has learned.
One kid took a little longer.
Two kids JUST got back into it, sort of.
Yes, this week has me feeling like throwing in the towel.
Today I realized it fits with the year.
Thanks, poster staring at me from the wall…
with my goals…
and my “word”…
just staring at me.
Ok. OK. OK!
I surrender, to my purpose.
I surrender to the consequences.
I surrender the week.
I surrender my attitude.
I surrender the stress.
I surrender to you, Lord.
And I take a deep breath and learn the lessons.
I pray harder.
I ponder St. Monica.
I ponder St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.
I ponder St. Therese of Lisieux.
I ponder Mother Mary.
I ask for their intercession to make the most of these lessons.
I thank God for His plan for my life.
For the purpose He has given to me.
And I praise him for another week.
