Creatures of Habit
It would appear I am a "Creature of Habit". The evidence is undeniable! Today, as I explained to my son (the oldest) that he should have done something differently, he replied "Well, mom, I'm just like you, I like to do it the same way every time". Ok, so there it is square between the eyes. Am I creating a monster? Hopefully, I am cultivating a love for order, organization, planning, etc... Don't get me wrong, I can certainly change gears midstream (having two active boys ensures that), but my passion is to do things systematically, the same way, and get the job done. Every night... eat dinner, take a bath, lay out clothes for school in the same place, take meds, brush teeth, head to bed, etc... Is that so bad? I mean routine... Isn't that what teaches them to remember to do things and to get in good habits? Somebody tell me if I'm wrong on this one!
*Walk with your eyes open, live a life examined; abide in Christ so that you can see with the eyes of Christ all the chances you have to change the world one obedient opportunity at a time.
