That was the plan...

We went to a Theology of the Body talk at our church tonight. I called ahead to see if there would be childcare, there wasn't, but our pastor was very nice and told me to come anyway. I figured I would give it a try and if the kids got to busy I would leave. That was the plan, but as soon as I got the kids unloaded at the church I realized I had locked the keys in the van. Yeah. - I'm sure this is not true, but I could just imagine a big grin on our Lords face and him saying "You really need to be at this talk, now you have no excuse to leave early!"- So, of course, we stayed for the whole talk, and it was wonderful. The kids were pretty good too, and afterward a nice couple drove me back to the house to pick up our spare key. (Dh is out of town, in case you didn't know.) I was really nervous though, partly because I had to leave all the kids at the church (I just didn't know what they would do to the poor babysitters while I was gone), and partly because I didn't know how I was going to get in the house once I got there! Luckily I had left the upstairs window open. I was able to climb up the fence, across the porch roof, and in the window; in my church dress! I must have been quite a sight! :D It took about 30 seconds to get from the porch, through the house, and back out the front door with the key. No joke. It was a little alarming to know it was that easy to break in to my house, and I didn't even have a plan first. Anyway, everything turned out just fine. The moral of the story? I don't know, but this song was playing on the way home :D. Even when things don't go quite how I plan them the Lord seems to take care of us anyway.
