Recently a friend asked me if I could take even a few days off work for some self-care, and I replied that even though that would help so much right now, it just wasn’t possible because of my teaching schedule. I felt like I couldn’t cancel class, even if I felt unwell, because I had had to cancel earlier in the semester due to illness, and feared having students become frustrated.
And then, snow. Glorious, glorious, snow!
So, I am left with the peace of mind that, in some way, shape, or form, God will always provide what I need, when I need it (even, perhaps, a well-timed snow storm).
I encourage you to look for unexpected or unplanned blessings today–things that only God could give you. It is a wonderful way to remember both our Father’s love and power to care for us.
