I can do ALL things....
The kids were all smiles in this picture, but the day did not end up with smiles. Yesterday prooved to be a challenge. It was our first day of school. I THOUGHT I was ready. I mean the kids are in first and second grade, how hard can this be? RIGHT!!!!!! WRONG!!!! I was not ready, I was feeling overwhelemed and discouraged. Things fell apart. The kids were all crying over something they didn't want to do. I heard, " I can't do this!" too many times. Then as the day progressed, I was thinking or uhh crying, " I can't do this!"
That was our first day of school. I did NOT go as planned. It was not a smooth easy, fun day. It was difficult and challenging. So I move forward, I regroup, and I am reminded of what Phil 4:13 says, "I can do all things through him who strengthens me."
