Do you ever have your day planned out? I mean, you are going to get things ACCOMPLISHED today! Raring to go, ready to tackle this or that project!!

And then, there's a CHANGE IN PLANS. Grown kids start stopping by. I am NOT whining about this...I love it. But my plans get crimped. And inside I feel a bit sorry for myself. It's really disgusting to admit that. The grown kids show up with THEIR kids, and before you know it, the grands are entertaining this crimped heart of mine. Just had a piano "concert" from E and L. First time L has been on the piano bench and actually got to "play" the piano. It was all wonderful to see and hear and I had to admit to God, "ok, I like YOUR plan better".

Then another grown up child of mine calls. They are stopping by in about an hour and a half. And again, that "crimped" feeling of MY plans. But, I have already talked with God about this impending visit, and have already admitted "indeed God, YOUR plans are always better." And so, I will shower and get ready to enjoy this God given, God driven time with them.

My plans will keep. They'll get done another day. God's perfect plan, God's perfect timing. God's perfect blessings. And I'm not going to miss one of them, He knows what is best...ALWAYS.


  1. His plans are better than ours! For sure! I love this post. I love seeing your heart in your posts on this new blog :)

    Jeremiah 29:11
    11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

  2. I know that crimped feeling all too well and always feel so guilty for having it, since God does know better and it always works out better.
    Great post!
