Unexpected

Today is Sunday.  Of all Sunday’s for the weather to shut down all Sunday activities, this wasn’t a good one.  My previous week consisted of getting ready for a community group leader training, finalizing FPU details for 100+ folks to start FPU tonight, moving lots of chairs and cleaning rooms in the building to fit all of these people, not to mention all of the other stuff others did to make Sunday awesome at New Community……and now none of it is happening today.

Part of me is a tiny bit  frustrated.  However, a larger part of me is reminded that I am not in control and what a waste it is to NOT enjoy this day.  I can prepare, I can do what is in front of me, but in the end I can’t control whether the day will happen.  Truly, we are given the day in front of us.  We are not promised tomorrow and if I am to dwell in that, then I will dwell in the unexpected gift of being home today with my family, enjoying the white stuff, and taking a few deep breaths when the thoughts barrage me about rearranging all the stuff that was today that is now no longer.

Enjoy your snow day
