Life can be fun!
It can get messy.....
When faced with a BIG mess......
I could learn a lesson from little G.
First assess the situation.
What is the thing I need to tackle first?
I could start by puting all the babies to bed.
What to do next?
Well toys go in one basket.....
and pretend food and dishes go in another.
Snap beads have to be put together before putting them in the toy basket.(says little G)
then the baskets go on the shelf.
If I break things into small tasks
before you know it a Big job is done!
What can I do next???
Id really like to watch a movie.
let me see if I can crack the code on Pay per view again.
Hijack the remote
and a little doggie snuggle time.
Little G has learned a BIG life lesson.
I will see her room
and tell her to clean up the mess
before lunch, nap, bedtime....
and I am shocked
when I go back to check
she is busily working away.
Breaking a big job
into small steps
"just doing it".
When I am faced by tough,
if I just take a breath,
and rely on the Strength of
Not my own....
I really can do ALL things.
Daughter and I have been discussing this too....
Like eating an elephant.
One bite at a time.
People kept telling me this during the adoption paper mess....
I know she and I would both appreciate
recipes for Elephant.
Its getting old.
(hope you dont mind me inserting some humor here!)
if you are in a hard
and messy place right now...
take a lesson from little G
(and Gods word)
take a breath,
asses the situation
and take it one step at a time.
Leaning on "I am"
Under His wings,
