Today was a day I threw out routine and we wandered around. We had to drop my husband off at work and we found a Halloween sidewalk sale to wander through. And then my mom and I decided to spontaneously go out to one of the orchards to get a pumpkin. And when we got there we discovered a Pumpkin festival.
I’m a planner, I never let things just happen. Matt is always telling me to relax, see what happens and not try to micromanage my life. I’m alway prone to focus so much on the future that I don’t enjoy the present. If I had planned out this trip, I’d have been trying to push through, do it all, and not relaxed, counted my blessings, and just let the boys play around. And I doubt I’d have so many cute pictures too.
Maybe I should try to make a habit of relaxing more. Maybe a little off topic, but thinking back on today, this was a scripture passage that was impressed on my heart. It’s one of the most well known and hardest to follow, I think:
“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34
