I had a date planned with my sweetheart, and I was running out of time to get everything done. I had laundry to fold, dishes to wash, posters to make, lessons to plan for church, and of course meals to prepare.
I felt panic creep in because I LOVE date night with my husband, and I didn't want to miss out on any of it! I also wanted to get all my work done so I could fully enjoy tomorrow's sabbath. I asked the children to help with extra chores than their own because I could see my time slipping away. I felt stagnant in my progress.
Right then, Mariah, my 5 yr. old, came skipping around the corner and said, "Mommy! Just say a prayer, and you'll get it all done in time! God will help you! See? I'll say a prayer for you right now!"
I knew she was right; I said a prayer at that very moment- she did too.:) I felt my panic slip away, and my efforts to finish what needed to be done became much more efficient.
