Every morning, my five year old son eats three small white powdered donuts.
And chocolate milk.
This is his routine and to get him to eat anything is a major challenge.
Today though, we were out of both.
As challenging as it was without coffee, I made the run to Walmart and got these items.
I was greeted at home with open, happy arms and much unlike the donuts, I felt whole…
I didn’t want to go out this morning, but I did so because it isn’t anyone else’s responsibility to donut run but mine. But I reminded myself, if there are chores in life we must do, do them with God and things seem much easier.
I relied on the Lord this morning as I knew that He would get me through the long Super Bowl lines and through the already crazy traffic with patience and virtue. And He did.
Also, the end result, which is always worth it—love from my son and happy smiles as I’m greeted at home made it that much better. It’s the place where I belong. Home. And along with the Lord, it’s what helps make me feel whole again and again.
Consider the power of Christ within you as you do ALL things. It truly makes a difference.
