Every now and then, the Lord does something or adds a little twist or leads you down a path that you just didn't expect. Sometimes, it's even unfathomable. Something happened and it was totally off of your radar, but then, there it is- the unexpected.
It's a good thing, too, because come tomorrow morning, I'll be making sure everyone gets breakfast and brushes their teeth and gets dressed, then I'll take two kids to school and then put one down for a nap while I clean and fold and put away- like I do every single day. So yeah, the unexpected, I feel, is the kindness of the Lord that breaks through and breaks in and gives us a sense of being on an adventure with Him. Even though I'm living in the town I was born and raised in and even though I have a regular schedule and even though I shoulder the responsibilities of a mother day in and day out, He still speaks and acts and leads in ways I don't expect and ways that remind me of the adventure I'm on with Him.
And it keeps things... colorful.
Thank you, Lord, for the unexpected in life.
