Plans Change!

Yes, there is a story behind these two pictures! :) The scene is set: a beautifully sunny Sunday afternoon and the house is really quiet{must be something wrong!} The thought going through my mind during this uncannily quiet time is “PERFECT time to concentrate and get some computer work done!” My computer just happened to max out it’s 500GB storage capacity and I needed to move lots of pictures over to my external hard-drive plus a few emails were in desperate need of being answered. I grab my computer and fix myself a delightful raw-sugar latte in my favorite mug{added an extra shot just because it’s Sunday ;)} and find a refreshing spot in our breakfast room to start my work{even snapped a quick picture with my phone just because it looked so serene!} Within 60 seconds of sitting down I had half a dozen kids surrounding me, Bekah was on the back of my chair “doing” my hair, Abel was reading his book out-loud to me, and Emmi… well, she was downing my highly caffeinated latte. :) Needless to say, no computer work was accomplished and emails waited until later that evening. Truth is that I wouldn’t have missed the 30 minutes of fun with these kids for an empty computer or answered emails! Plans change, often times very quickly, and in my case in under 60 seconds! ;) This is a friendly yet random reminder that “A man’s heart plans his way: but the LORD directs his steps.” Just remember, “As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.”

Happy Monday everyone!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.”
Proverbs 3:5-6


About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
