Lesson learned/2nd Chances

A lot of mornings we start school while still in our pjs. Today, I told the girls to get dressed before we started school. They didn't obey. Aunt Shawna just called and wanted to take the girls to see Great-Grandma. They didn't get to go because they weren't dressed. Avery threw a huge fit. She ran upstairs to pout. She was so mad at me when, in fact, she was the one who didn't make the wise choice earlier this morning.

How many times does this happen with us and God? God tells us to do something-we don't do it-then we get mad and sulk and complain when opportunity comes and we're not prepared. Am I the only one seeing a parallel here?

In the meantime, Shawna called back to say they were going to go after lunch instead. Wonder if the girls will be dressed by then...
