Didn’t turn out quite like I thought…

I have just needed a break these past few days. We all have. Things have been difficult and frustrating, one after another. So the girls and I had some fun. :)

We went outside to do some “bubble art!” (See my homeschooling blog for how-to.) We had a great time, and you can see the Jackson Pollock’s in training.

But the bubbles were weird because of another long story I don’t need to go into right now, so the artwork just wasn’t turning out how we had thought and planned for it to turn out.

But when the girls finished and stepped back, what resulted was still really beautiful and very fun.

It made me stop and think. Here was yet another example of how so often, we try to plan and see in our minds exactly how things will be, but they don’t turn out like we think they will. But when we step back and look at it when it’s over, we realize that it is beautiful, and that our Father in Heaven truly does understand how things are supposed to go. If we trust and follow Him, things will turn out better and more beautiful than we could have imagined.

So relax and try to enjoy the ride!! :)
