Eeny Meeny Miny Moe.....

As I sat listening to my daughters doing the age old “eeny meeny miny moe” thing this morning, I couldn’t help but think how much easier it would be if I could do that. You know, eeny meeny miny moe between laundry, cooking, cleaning……reading, listening to music, watching tv……buy groceries, go shopping, go out to eat….you get the idea. Really I guess I do, at least for the unpleasant things! I make a “to do” list, and then pick & choose (eeny meeny miny moe) which one to do first or last!!
This led me to thinking about how GRATEFUL I am that my Father doesn’t do this to me! I mean really…..ALL His children are calling on Him (at the same time) in need, in praise, in general. As a mom to 4 I know how nerve racking it is for me when all this happens at the same time. How humbling to know that He hears me even when my “brothers & sisters” are calling out to Him too. He doesn’t play eeny meeny miny moe to any of us.
So this brings up the question (& I’ll end with this)…..why do WE tend to eeny meeny miny moe HIM?? We move Him to the LAST  on our “to do” list, we put Him off until later. I’m guilty of this so please know I’m not pointing fingers…..I’m coming up beside you the same.
