I'm working on getting back to the basics today. For me, that means reading one more book to my little ones than I did yesterday (so...one book), helping my hard working man on a project while he's working his day job, pressing and starching a few work shirts for my handsome guy, and fixing a hot meal for dinner that doesn't involve opening a can of condensed cream of anything.
They're not gonna know what hit 'em!
I recently told the Lord that I'm gonna trust him, but I'm so darn scared because I just don't know what he has in store for me. I'm a planner...blindly leaning on someone for everything to come (no matter how infinitely competent they are) just isn't in my nature. He seemed to accept my feeble offering...even smiled and me...and do you know what he whispered softly to my trembling little heart?
"I have a plan, yes. A plan to prosper you and not to harm you."
What a gift. I'm clinging to that promise and enjoying my abundantly blessed life today.
PS. My trick for a beef stew that has a little extra zip? A few dashes of worcestershire sauce and one 12 oz can of low sodium V8 juice. Yum!
