I’m making an exception today and posting on a Sunday because I agreed to something that wasn’t in my “plan” for the day…and was very blessed because of it. I haven’t slept well the past 2 nights and woke up in pain, not an uncommon occurrence for me. So I planned to visit a little bit after church, take a nap and get a little hubby help putting my heavy scrapping supplies away from last weekend. Instead, we had a lovely visit with friends for over an hour after church, THEN my sweetie asks me to go on an impromptu picnic in the park. Hmmm…
I’ve heard many times over the years about saying yes to your sweetie when he initiates romance and leadership, so I decided to say YES! It actually didn’t take long at all to make the decision! :> THEN we remembered we hadn’t called my father-in-law to say Happy Birthday. Meanwhile, it’s getting later and later and all of MY plans begin to completely slip away. Guess what? I kept my word and went on the “picnic” anyway, although the clouds had rolled in, making it a bit chilly by this point, so we didn’t eat at the park after all.
He’s been really gracious when I’ve asked for his help taking Modest Monday photos too. Although he also wants to sneakily take take photos he wants of me as well! After reading a woman’s blog about avoiding photos of herself after gaining weight, I decided I also need to let this go and allow my sweetie and others to capture me on film anyway. YES, you can take my photo! We even had fun laughing about it together today! :>
In the end, we had a lovely time together and even ran into a couple we felt God wanted us to run into. Saying YES was a blessing!
Do you find it hard to say YES when something contradicts YOUR plans?
