As I’m writing, my kids are getting ready for their swim lessons today: swim suits, goggles, flip flops, towels, sun screen etc. Reece always says, “proper prior planning prevents poor performance.” This is extremely true for swim lessons. When I don’t prepare well, they get sunburns, have stingy eyes and ride home grumpy – an all around bad experience that could have been good, if I had prepared better.
This is a great lesson in life – preparing for what’s ahead. Now my kids don’t always know what’s going to be happening & its my responsibility as their mom to do my best to make sure they’re ready for what’s around the bend. They need to be adept at various skills before they can move onto to the next challenge (even if they don’t know what the challenge is). Same with God. I think He’s always preparing us for what’s next. Thankfully, we can trust Him even more than ourselves, that He will keep us prepared for what’s coming – even swim lessons. 😉
