I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
I run down the stairs to make lunch only to find an empty fridge as we have yet to go grocery shopping. I’m not sure how I’ll blame the alarm clock for the lack of food in the house, but give me time, I’ll come up with something. Then mommy gears start to go off and I get creative making the kids nutritious healthy lunches (save for the slice of pound cake that made it into their lunch boxes out of desperation).
Okay, not the start I wanted, but now we can start the day again and be productive, right? Wrong. In comes hubby who says “come upstairs and let’s go back to bed’, and that’s all it took. A productive day…going, going, gone.
At the time, I remember feeling not only worried for our future but mostly hurt by the situation. I felt so much pain for hubby – caring for a dying parent, coupled with the loss of his job, the betrayal of a friend and carrying the responsibility to provide for his family? But through it all, hubby had faith and kept assuring me we would be OK. It was during those days that I heard God say to me ‘I got you’.
And God does not lie. In hindsight, hubby being able to spend the final weeks with his Dad – caring for him 24/7 – was a true blessing. Oh, and in part due to the help of another friend, hubby starts a new job on Monday.
So you see, even though things seemed ‘unjust’ at the time and everything appeared out of place, there was always a master plan. One that has slowly been revealed to us and for that we are grateful.
Yes, today was an unproductive day, but we’ll try again tomorrow. And if tomorrow doesn’t work, there’s always next Monday.
Thank you for reading along.
ps. I hand painted some pretty little roses on a Canvas Corp canvas envelope using DecoArt paints. I have a little video tutorial of how I painted the flowers that I’d be happy to share if anyone is interested 🙂
