The youngest has been trying out new words.
Last week, he announced, “Dad is in a predicament.” Dad thought snow plowing the bottom edge of the driveway was a good plan.
Today, he asked if he could resume his video game after I reminded him about his chores. I asked him if he knew how to spell “resume.” The middle-one piped up, “R-E-Z-O-O-M.” The youngest didn’t get it quite right either, but he knew it meant “to start again.”
The middle-one is usually my best speller, but I did not find his misspelling discouraging. It fit well with a quotation from today’s reading in Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence.
“Do not bolt into the day like a racehorse suddenly released. Instead, walk purposefully with Me, letting Me direct your course one step at a time.”
Both remind me not to sprint into the day, but that I am simply to begin where yesterday left off and resume God’s purpose for my life.
