The other day I let my daughter have quiet time instead of nap time. Mostly I make sure she stays in her room, but today she came and told me she was going potty, and I was busy so I said okay.
Ten minutes later I realized I hadn’t seen her or heard her go back into her room… so I went looking and this is what I found:
It was a mess. She had emptied out two tubes of toothpaste, had water all over the floor and was attempting to clean it up with a hand towel.
I could have gotten upset, I could have yelled at her, but I laughed and went to get my camera. I have to remember that daily God gives me opportunities to release control or to cling to it. A clean house is something I like to control; but even through the mess God is teaching me how little control I really have.
