Today was a miss-the-birthday-party, bleeding toddler, stain-the-new-shirt, ’tween with a fever, husband-out-of-state, cherry tomato minefield on the kitchen floor, lumpy, GOOD day.
- The friend with the party totally understands. (love you, Amy)
- Fels Naptha bar to the rescue, and the bloodstained shirt is good as new.
- No stitches required. Toddler imitating daddy shaving could have been much, much worse. That kid is too quick for his own good.
- Getting my almost-12 boy quiet on the couch, asking me to read the Bible to him~ well worth a day of illness.
- Hubby offered a back rub as soon as he walked in the door (and he came home. I don’t take that for granted)
- Stomping tomatoes makes hurting children laugh. Who knew?
Not an “A” list day, but not a bad day. There is so much genuine heartache going on all around us that we need to really discern between bad days and GOOD days that have some lumps. Today was lumpy, but not bad. If the lumpy days feel this dumpy, let’s think of our friends who are experiencing really bad days, and let’s pray for them to be comforted by God’s hand at work in the hard times.
Our God is praiseworthy in the good days, the bad days, and the lumpy days.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other. I create the light and make the darkness. I send the good times and the bad times. I, the Lord, am the one who does these things. ” Isaiah 45:7
Are you having a lumpy day? A lumpy week, month, or year?
How can I pray for you?
