OH and if that is not enough---we will be biking also---I have NOT been on a bike in two years. For those of you unfamiliar with riding---my legs are the least of my concern. Sit on that bike seat for 20 miles---OH GOODNESS---I may need to order new parts before that day is over.
Perhaps all is not lost. We are going kayaking also. Perhaps I can jump into that frigid water and numb all my parts which should be trashed by the time this day rolls around. Let me see--when is the last time I kayaked---at least ten years ago!
OH I know---I will pray about it. I will ask God to swoop down and clean up this mess I seem to have gotten MYSELF into.
Sad--but true---I get myself into these HUGE MESSES---and then expect God to rush to my rescue. When my children were younger, I was a big believer in making them pay the consequences for their actions. Where could I have garnered that nugget of wisdom? MAYBE from His Word. Example after example is sprinkled all through His Book. We may sin---He will forgive us---but we still pay the consequences. Somethings tells me I am going to pay for my actions---incur the consequences for not preparing--and I am ready for the sore and tired muscles and tender parts that are coming.
What would really be sad---if I did not learn from this lesson. If I allowed myself to fall into the same predicament again---expecting God to rescue me from my foolishness. THAT WOULD BE SAD!
