Is That Wrong?
This morning, I was fixing my hair (after I had showered, exercised and meditated on scripture while drinking coffee), and I asked God a question my children often ask…
Is it wrong?
Is it wrong that I just took a deep breath as if to enjoy the fact that I am alone? Is it wrong that one moment I grieve sending my baby to kindergarten and the next there is a bit of relief over his excitement? Is it wrong I just enjoyed three things for myself?
Much like my response to my children, there was not a “yes” or “no” response. But, I hope the response rings loud in my mind throughout this “freed up” (Ha!) school year.
Your life is no more yours now than it was then.
My life is not my own. My time is not my own. While this new transition will be and has already proven to be daunting, I want to be careful to remember my schedule is under the Lordship of Christ. Everything belongs to the Lord. From colossal to small.
