There are some things I often leave till I absolutely have to do them. I do this with dishes and with clothes. And at least half of the time this is what happens with dinner. The kids or Shannon ask, "What's for dinner?"
I answer, "Something really good" and then I start thinking hard about what to fix.
None of this is a big deal. Dishes, clothes and dinner do get done and everyone is fine with it.
But sometimes we really need to do what we know needs doing when it needs doing. We don't glorify God by procrastinating. Sometimes we can even do damage.
My son Hawken doesn't use his legs as typical boys do. He doesn't walk on them. He has braces and a stander I am supposed to put him in regularly.
He didn't stand in the stander all summer. I kept putting it off. He hates doing it. And I hate to see him hating something.
I told myself we'd start when school started.
And now, his hamstrings are so tight I can't get his legs straight without him crying.
I shouldn't have put it off for so long. Now, we have to play catch-up.
Did I glorify God by neglecting this in Hawk's life?
