Spinach is Healthy

There have been plenty of times I have stuff spinach in my kids mouths. I am lucky enough that Conner loves it now, and will willingly eat it. We have it a lot, and now someone’s two year old is dead because of it.
You just can’t control life.
Period.
I have thought a lot about it today. I want to be able to control everything. My husband, my job, my kids my house, my friends. I don’t like feeling as though something is out of my control — but when it comes down to it, it all is. It’s all totally out of control.
The world keeps spinning, and we can’t stop it.
Spencer keeps having accidents, and we can’t stop him.
And if God sees fit to take someone I love — I can’t stop Him. As much as I might try.
It seems like we’re placed on this earth to try and keep control of ourselves and our lives and yet realize that God controls everything, and thus, we must be obedient to him. Just another slippery slope we’re balancing on…. I just wish I had better core muscles. :)

    Oh wow – didn’t know a 2 year old died. That is sad. And it has been weird how I normally don’t think I eat spinach butt here have been things I have ordered that has spinach in it and it wasn’t available.

    That’s a very good point. Reminds me of a story from college. I guess a little boy had been killed in my roommates hometown by a rare tropical snake that came out of his banana and bit him in the neck. Her mom called her to warn he against eating bananas…and my roommate’s response was: “Mom, if a snake comes out of my banana and kills me…then it’s my time to go.” Although, the spinach thing now is a little different. I sure miss spinach.

    don’t we all wish we had better core muscles. Thanks for thought on not only spinach but on control, I am a control freak. It is hard to step back and just let life happen.

    I know exactly how you feel. I am such a control freak, and not to mention the weee bit of OCD in my system. I must drive DeLoy nuts. I always say I want to put my kids in cages at home, so that nothing bad will ever happen to them. I know people are taken at their time and I have a strong testimony, but if anything like that happened to my baby I would just die!
