I’m gonna jump right in. It’s only 5 minutes, right? What could I possibly write about jumping in 5 minutes?
How about jumping into motherhood? No, she wasn’t an accident, a whoops, a we-didn’t-mean-to-get-pregnant-yet-baby. Natural family planning actually works for this anal retentive science teacher. 😉
But seriously…when God said, “Try once,” we didn’t exactly think He’d deliver on the first go-round. But how could we not? HE’S GOD!
So here I am…writing this with an 8-month-old-tomorrow baby girl playing with her daddy in the other room (teachers need/deserve spring break!!!). I have learned so much about myself, my husband, and mothering because I chose to jump in with two feet…but mostly I’ve learned about God. How much He loves me. How much He will cushion my fall when He tells me to jump…or prompts me to go for something without His direct saying but with the tools and talents and desires He’s given me.
Which is why I’m jumping again. I quit my online rating job. My safety, fall-back, guaranteed $300 a month job. Why? So that I can jump in to my Etsy shop wholeheartedly. We’ll see if it goes anywhere. But with God, all things are possible. IF YOU JUMP. And if it is not successful $wise, it will be successful in other ways…character building, discipline, you get the picture.
