Speaking as one who's son regularly trys to scale the TV (and who really does climb on top of the piano the second you look away), today's muse gave me a change of perspective. I feel like I spend all day saying "No, no! No, don't jump off the kitchen table! No, don't chew on rocks! No, don't put cherrios in the DVD player! No, don't use the toilet to wash your hands!" Sometimes, it's so easy to forget that God has a larger plan, and that we all have to go through stages of understanding. We are only given what we are ready to understand, line upon line. And that we all have things to learn and areas in which to grow. And, that I won't be saying "NO!" every 30 seconds for the rest of my life!
Thanks for the reminder and for the perspective adjustment, Ro!
