Three things #115

1. I find that all of our children have been self-determined from the start. They come into the world whenever they want to. Don't check with Mom or Dad. Just are born at their leisure. Completely uncaring about schedules and routines. Way to go, babies....way to go.....

This stage of the pregnancy is kind of like waiting for Christmas as a kid and not really understanding the meaning of the calendar. You wake up every morning wondering if there will be presents and then at the end of the day you think, "Well, it wasn't Christmas today." Eventually it has to be Christmas, but the waiting is still a bummer.

2. This quote was simply screaming at me: "Our greatest fear as individuals and as a church should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter." (Tim Kizziar via Francis Chan)

3. God knew that you would do the things that you regret the most and He decided to create you anyway. More than that, He sacrificed greatly so that He could adopt you. So, rest little sheep, your regrets are no match for His grace.
