A Broken Bee.


 Do you ever wonder what God sees when He views us living our lives?

I mean, the way we fret and worry about problems that we have:
the money worries, the health worries, the future worries, the job worries,
our relationships.

You know, 
all the stuff.

They are important.

But can worry change any of it?




 Mother's have worries, too.
I am constantly reminding myself to calm down
and try to go with the unexpected...

and the interruptions.

Worries can be big
and they can be incredibly small...
like deciding on what color paint for the school wall,
and 
just 
getting
it 
done!!




 Frustrations about
when hope and expectation will come to pass.




The tedium of constantly picking up and wondering
when will the kids finally learn how to put things away so 
it be safe again to sit down on the furniture.

Small things, I know.

They certainly don't seem worthy of worry
or of taking the joy out of a day.


My kids get upset over the weirdest stuff.

Really.

Lillie pulled the antennae ball off of Violet's bee costume headband.



What would life be like without a bee costume headband?



Something must be done.




 But what?




 Shall I be angry about the broken piece?




 Should I just stare at it and worry
and dwell on how it came off,
who did it,
why did they have it in use that way?



What can be done for something so important as this?
Maybe I should paint it the three colors of the wall and throw it at it,
and whatever color hits it
will be the color choice of the wall?





Oh, no, with so little time while they sleep,
I need to do what needs to be done.






 Because it is a trivial thing, really.

And just as the things in my life sometimes seem so huge and important 
and worrisome
or the people may seem demanding or annoying,
I need to realize that God is in control
and 
I just need to do my part...






 
 no matter how ridiculously small it seems.




Because when I do...
 
those under my care can smile...

and be a bee again instead of Spiderman.







 
The clown can take off those ridiculous shoes
and become the Spiderman he is so good at being...




And they'd all work together to
make the whole world a brighter place to live.




"Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in they sight,
O LORD,
my strength and my redeemer."
Psalm 19:14

  3. This is a very humorous and touching post. I love the photos too. Your kids look as fun and adorable as you do!

    For the record, I think you are so right and when it's put like that...Like all we worry about is just a little glitter ball...A little 'Stuff' it does seem more trivial.

    Also I like the greener color choice. Gives more of an energetic vibe. ;)

    Blessings!

  7. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face today. You're right; if we only realized that God is in control of all things, we wouldn't worry. I wish we weren't so distracted by what's happening to remember Who is in control of it.
