creature of habit

I am a creature of habit. I like stability and clarity. I like knowing where I am and where I am going.

I do not do well with unsaid expectations, uncertainty or high winds.

 

I am a mum to three small girls, wife to an adventurer and a follower of Jesus, who is often quiet and easily misunderstood.

The stability I crave is often thwarted by Barbie dolls and spontaneous decisions to go to the beach.

 

I know that I choose to trust my temperament over my knowledge of a generous God.

And daily I pay the price for that choice.

And so I must begin again, daily, hourly, to choose to trust that He is close and constant and reliable and whispers beauty and grace when I listen.
