Day 78: Plans

Today was  "Meet the Teacher" day.  It's funny even typing that, as I can promise you that "Meet the Teacher" day is something I NEVER imagined I would experience again.

As the thought of "Meet the Teacher" day passed through my brain, it brought with it all the other things we never thought we'd experience again.  Lunch money, and spelling tests, and school dances, and allowances, and curfews, and teenage drivers, and on and on and on the list goes.

The plans I had for this stage of my life most assuredly never included diapers or tantrums or pediatricians or meet the teacher days.  Had my plans prevailed though, I would have missed bedtime stories and sweet baby kisses and playing dress up and dancing like a ballerina.  I would have missed the chance to watch two sweet baby girls grow into the beautiful godly women they will someday become.

Proverbs 19:21 says, "Many are the plans of a man's heart, but it's the Lord's purpose that prevails."

All that to say, my plans are never as beautiful as His.
