Every evening I have a routine of leaving the kitchen tidy and the counter shiny so when I awake, it's fresh and ready to be used again...and once and a while I'll toss a load of laundry into the washer so I can hang it if the weather permits the next morning as I greet our new hens.
Well, this past Tuesday, my dad and I headed to a storage unit to see a hutch that we were considering buying for the kitchen...we got back later than expected, finished up dinner that Love had started and sat down to eat.
That cell phone was only four months old.
So, I have no phone until we decide to spend another $100 or try to find one from Craigslist...
But the connection I have kept this week is with my son. That is much more valuable and when this is a distant memory, I want him to remember that mom loved him more and there are always consequences to his choices...and to mine.
May my choices come from the wisdom of the Word and may the law of kindness be upon my lips. Help me, Jesus.
