What a mess!

I just got up from the breakfast table with my two little munchkins a little more enlightened. Yes I do learn lessons from my children! We were all chomping away on our cereal when Maddux let out a huge sneeze and snot filled his nose (yummy). I got up to wipe it for him and him being a baby got frustrated with me and cereal went flying off his tray and onto the floor. Immediately Brooke said "No Bubbah, bad boy." I guess she didn't get the affirmation from me that she wanted for repremanding her brother so she said, "look momma, Maddux made a big mess." The only thing is that she was sitting in front of a mess of her own. You see, she recently started asking for milk in her cereal and though she is very good with the spoon she hasn't figured out the drip factor. She wanted to make sure that I knew about Bubbah's mess but didn't even notice her own. This was a lesson two-fold. How often does God come try to clean me up when I am a mess and I fight Him kicking and screaming? How quick am I to point out someone elses little mess when I have a big sticky one of my own? Man, either God was trying to speak to me or I am taking this job way too serious. I will place my money on God revealing Himself to me, as He has done that so much lately. Time to get ready to head out for the morning. What is God saying to you this morning?

edited to add: keep scrolling I had a post yesterday too! I know, nothing for months and now 2 in less than 24 hours. What's going on here??

This mornings verse for me was "He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield in whom I take refuge." Psalm 144:2

What a sweet reminder for my day!

I'm in a Bible study too right now. I've been hearing God left and right these days. It's amazing what you hear, when you have your heart open. I find his words in everyday things. I'm so excited that you are having a wonderful experience in your study and that you are finding new friends. I really don't know what I would do without mine. In fact, I'm going to lunch with one of them today.
