Do you remember a childhood poem that starts “I know an old woman who lived in a shoe, she had so many children she didn’t know what to do”? Well as I looked it up I found it does not say that anywhere in the poem but for the sake of this blog today I will let my version stand because it fits the scenario of my thoughts for today.
I do not have any physical children but I have many, many spiritual children who have come over the years to stay in my shoe. There are days that I feel so blessed to have my job and it brings me joy and there are days that I feel I have so many children I just don’t know what to do! On days like that generally the entire community is chaos. The worst response is to join them in their chaos. The best laid plans…… I have learned to “be still” and “wait on the Lord.” The problem with chaos is when I become reactive instead of proactive. It is when the old shoe becomes too tight!!
