I Don't Have To Be Perfect

Lark
They are bringing the lift chair today between one o'clock and three o'clock. I want to call and reschedule. I am not ready for anyone to walk into our home. I am never ready for anyone to walk into our home. I will keep the appointment.  I will endure this intense discomfort. I will remember. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

My hair is a mess and I have gained weight and my clothes don't fit and I don't want people I have not seen in a long time to see me until I can get my hair styled and lose weight and my clothes fit.  I will go out and allow myself to be enough. I will remember.  I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

My car is a mess and my house is in chaos. My intentions are good but the work does not get done. I wish I were different. I wish I would keep everything in place. I want to scold myself and put myself in time out. I will remember. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

I should be tracking the hurricane. I don't have an escape plan. I can't imagine where we will go if we go. I think I should know and that I am letting go of something very important. I will remember. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

Please, God! Help me to remember that only you are perfect and that you are in charge and I don't have to be perfect!

Amen!
