“Therefore, my beloved brothers,
be steadfast, immovable, always abounding
in the work of the Lord, knowing that
in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
1 CORINTHIANS 15:58 ESV
Wednesday. What a beautiful word! Halfway to the weekend, halfway to finishing the race. Yesterday was a long day in the very short beginning to the week. Monday. Tuesday. Wait, it’s only Tuesday? There’s a lot to do today…carpooling, character-building, don’t forget about the clothesline. I’m ready to throw in the towel and sit under a shady tree with a nice glass of iced tea in one hand and a book in the other! But, instead…I can do the next right thing. I can drive to that appointment, I can explain why we don’t take things from our siblings without permission (for the thousandth time), and I can even hang up too many pairs of tiny socks. Maybe, I can manage to do it with a cheerful heart…but for today, I’m just going to do my best and hope for the best. It’s the little things, one step at a time, that take me where I want to go…I just have to make sure I’m facing the right direction and walk in love.
