Ducks in a row? Seriously?!

Ideally life should look like this


However; typically, mine looks like this


Which is okay if all the ducks stay still so I can assemble them into a tidy row: if I can take all my responsibilities and give them the proper time and attention they require.


Unfortunately my "ducks" more closely resemble Canadian geese - independent,fast moving, fat and mean.



Making it a constant race to chase them down to get them in order.

And they don't like getting in order...really.
Ducks,
Geese,
Responsibilities,
None are  predisposed to get into a nice orderly row.

Instead they exhibit other behaviors...


some days are just that way...


And it is on these days that it is good to remember that I am not the one sitting on the throne of the universe.
God is in control and because He is, I don't have to be.

I will do my best act responsibly in all my commitments and obligations.
But putting ducks in rows, is ultimately up to Him.
