But just to make you smile...
This evening before praying with the boys, Canon was lying in my lap and I noticed he had some boogers in his nose. I apologize if that seems gross, but I am the mom of three boys. And so I naturally did what any mom of boys would do - I picked it. Unfortunately I came up empty. But not to be discouraged I tried again. I was unsuccessful a second time. Canon lay there with a big smile on his face, patiently letting me pick at him. Finally he told me, "Momma, yous fingers too big. See, mine tiny. God made them for my nose. I get it." Though silly and slightly gross, I was reminded of this truth - we were created for a certain purpose. Our personalities, convictions and abilities are unique to us. We only "fit" in the will and path that God has for us. I am "too big" or "too small" to accomplish what God planned for your life and vice versa. It encouraged me to know that I have a Maker that laid plans for me to "give me a future and a hope".
And just for the record, we got a Kleenex and washed our hands after our little adventure!
For I know the thoughts I thinks toward you,
says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil,
to give you a future and a hope.
