This week is a silly crazy week. And for some stupid reason I am stressing. I really shouldn't be stressing because none of it is super important, but none-the-less ... I am.
I could write out the list but seriously none of it is important. We have some family get togethers for Easter - one of them is here. So I want to clean and prep and grocery shop for that. The 2 main guys in my life have birthdays coming up and
In the whole scheme of things none of them are super important. Just a list of wants. I mean, who cares if my house is spotless for Easter? It's my parents who are coming and they will love me no matter what. Who cares if there is poop on my front porch or siding?
What matters is that my family feels loved and that we celebrate and relish in the true meaning of this holiday: the death and resurrection of Jesus. That He paid the price for my sin, He died and rose again! That ultimate gift.
2000 years ago God's To Do list was:
1. Be betrayed by close friend
2. Be beaten up, whipped and spat upon
3. Be forgotten by my closest friends
4. Be nailed to a cross
5. Take on the sins of all mankind
7. Rise Again
My to do list seems pretty small in comparison. Helps to put it all in perspective.
So, if you are feeling overwhelmed like me may you be able to put it all into perspective. May our lists seem smaller and more manageable right now. May we concentrate on what it is we are celebrating this weekend.
