Our first day of school…Why do I ever think we can have a good first day of school? Isn’t there some sort of saying about repeating the same action and expecting a different result? Well, I was certainly feeling crazy! Things started well enough—I prayed, read my devotions, finished my chores, got the kids up in a timely matter. We gathered after breakfast to discuss the new year, the new schedule and get situated. We prayed together, did science…. Then everything went horribly wrong. I can’t even put my finger on what the problem was.
I ended up putting myself in timeout for a shower just to cool off. I couldn’t help but wonder who I thought I was fooling. I’m no good at this! I can’t do this!! I felt so lousy about myself I just wanted to start the day over—NO! I surely didn’t want to REPEAT the day…I know. I just want the day to be done. Who ever said that every single day ever HAS to have a whole 24 hours? That is just a silly rule!
Praise the Lord for Day Number Two. If I didn’t hold out for Day Number Two, there would have been only one Day One!
