Today I'm gonna live like I love Jesus, so if He comes for me I'll be ready!
It's 6:20 AM. Much too early for a deliberate rising, but with back pain and an early morning nursing of the baby, my mind got to rolling.
That's who's on my mind because I noticed something missing from it's place that shouldn't have been. I don't know who's responsible, but I can guess.
A number of things lately have been shouting for my attention, telling me subtly and not so, that one of my children - an imp eyed pixie named O. - is falling through the proverbial cracks.
She's so easy-going. So Cute. So winsome!
So un-dependable. She disregards my every word as though it's her privilege to pick and choose what command she wants to obey, and with nary a dispute - she just does what she wants!
Once my brain set to working on a problem which I have known is mine all along, I decided to get up and make myself useful formulating a plan. Hence the desire to "...live like I love Jesus..." I do of course, love Jesus. It's just that I (along with much of the Jesus-loving population) do not always attempt to LIVE like it. So today I am deliberate. It might take a divergence from the preplanned school routine, but I have got to pick O. out of the cracks. I've got to rally her to my team! I've got to be Jesus to her, and I know He would take all the time in the world for her.
She's a little girl who needs a lot of training which I haven't made time to give her. Up to this point I have spent enough time putting out fires that I may as well have put in the effort before the fire got started.
I have a few ideas, a plan, if you will.
Perhaps if I'm transparent, you'll be hearing of my venture throughout the day. If I am all-consumed (which I anticipate since this is not first and foremost a blogging experiment), you might not.
Either way, if you love Jesus too will you pray for me and O.?
