Well, here it is, another first day for teachers that I’m not headed back to work. It’s still a little weird to me. Mostly, though, it reminds me how grateful I am for the time I am able to have with my son.
If I had tried to plan this whole stay-at-home-thing out, it wouldn’t have worked. My fretting and worrying leading up to what needed to be my resignation date wasn’t helping at all. It was truly a plan implemented–in exactly perfect timing–by the Lord. He takes such good care of us.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” –Matthew 6:25-27
