sometimes things just don’t go like you plan them.
heck, actually much of the time things don’t go as planned.
sometimes, you get so excited to see a long-distance real life and blogging friend for the first time in 3 years,
and then without warning your daughter throws up all over you (and doesn’t even spare the space between your toes).
sorry, lauren! it was so fun seeing you all though
sometimes, your house sells too quickly (or maybe not quickly enough).
sometimes, your spouse loses his patience.
no, not this cute man?!
sometimes, your friends disappoint you.
sometimes, your daughter can’t get rid of her 103.5 temperature for days.
sometimes, your son throws countless tantrums.
sometimes, your plans come undone and things don’t go as you HOPED they would….
you realize, i realize, that putting my HOPE & JOY in any of these things is futile and will more often than not, lead to disappointment.
so, i’m reminded today, coming off of a weekend that was full of those “sometimes,” that…
“My HOPE is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteous;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.”
–lyrics from the hymn “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less” by Edward Mote
and ps. i love them all and always will.
