How is it that only a Sister can hurt your feelings without hurting your feelings?
Saturday, I shared with my sisters that I wasn't feeling too good and was just having an emotional pity party. The foot was really acting up and I was having to watch Hubby vacuum, dust and wet mop the floors and even pass a swifter over the most dusty surfaces. He then did some work outside and even a small re-org of the garage.
And all I did was watch!
On Sunday Sister2 called to check on me. I told her I was doing much better, but that Saturday had just been a difficult day for me. She very gently said, "Lib, you know you are a control freak, and you aren't in control of anything right now. This is new territory for you."
All I could do was smile and say, "Sis, you know I think you hit the nail on the head!"
Just when I think I've given the control over to the One in Control Of All Things, I realize that isn't the way it is at all. Oh yes, perhaps the biggies like the rising and setting of the sun and changing of seasons and even some relationships, but my day-to-day relinquishment, not so much so.
So, thanks Sis for putting things back into perspective for me.
How about you?
How do you handle not being in control?
These precious neighbors all decked out for a "Trunk or Treat" event at their church brought me a beautiful floral bouquet this afternoon.
I received a blessing from Just Following Jesus today.I hope you do as well.
