Here's a sample of dialogue from my house last night.
Doug: A, are you cleaning your room?
A: No, Daddy. My nose is bothering me. It makes me want to play.

Later, I (who turns three today) was playing in the living room while his sister "cleaned" their room.
Renee: Why isn't I helping A clean?
Doug: He never cleans. I don't pick battles that have no end.

Even More

When I wrote my last blog entry, I had no idea that my grandmother who has Alzheimer's was in the hospital. She's back at the nursing home, but the doctor says she is in the last stages of the disease and no longer knows how to eat. The doctor has advised my uncle to call in hospice.
No matter what happens today, just keep in mind that it didn't come as a surprise to God. He's still sovereign. He's still in control. That has kept me going lately.
