Is the World Round for a Reason?

“God made the world round so we could never see too far down the road.”  Isak Dinesen

Are you a planner?  I sure am.  I like to know what is going on, when it is going to happen, and what I am going to do after that happens.  Anyone that knows me can testify to that part of my personality.  Lately my schedule hasn’t been able to be planned out.  I had to wait to get sports schedules before I could plan or commit to other functions.  I can’t plan much during the week as I am expected to need to substitute teach nearly every day.  Some days I haven’t felt the best and so didn’t feel like I could commit to something until I knew I was going to be feeling better.  All this “unknown” stuff has been stressful for me and made me a bit anxious.  Last Monday, when I turned my calendar page, the above quote was the quote for the day.  It literally calmed me.  Maybe I’m not supposed to know every little thing I am going to be doing tomorrow.  Maybe not EVERYTHING on my list has to get done.  Maybe I can wake up and wait and see what the day holds for me.  And, maybe, just maybe, I can actually be OK with that.
