Oh if only I’d thought about priorities instead of running ahead at a hundred miles an hour. First I had to realise that being a mother is as much of a calling as the academic stuff!
I’ve always loathed thay wretched perfect woman in Proverbs 31! But there she is getting her house in order looking after the kids and and is doing such a good job that her husband praises her. v. 25 says that she laughs at the days to come!
That verse irks me most because thats my failing, never trusting or planning enough, muddling along and hoping for the best instead. Well , I’d like to laugh at the days to come….. time to get your house in order and get your priorities right!
What brought all this on? Aberdeen uni has offered me a place which will allow me to do my degree in modules on the PHONE! ( that Proverbs gal didn’t haveone of those!)
Time to do the house work, look after the children and study and NO travelling in the dark winter days!!!
Lord, teach me to be quiet and listen to that still small voice! Thank you for dealing with the most minute details . My God is an AWESOME God!
