I am a doer! When I have something that needs to be done – this is my philosophy: no stopping or standing around – let’s get this done. This is why it has been very difficult for me with trying to begin a kindergarten program. It has been more difficult than trying to develop the charter. The charter school development had many requirements, and in the end we had a binder full of our proposal each time we submitted. There was no standing around; we had a deadline to meet. With the kindergarten, we were able to be very creative and faced very few requirements. But again, we needed a space – which never came to fruition. There have been so many times where we had to stop and stand and wonder.
This week, especially, I have had to let go of working on kindergarten. I just wanted the kindergarten so badly – ME. My team was behind me and always gave their support and encouragement. This week – they let me be idle.
We had developed a plan B. Again, I was hanging on to plan A. Later today or early tomorrow, we will use our website to show you our plan B. This does not mean that we are giving up on the kindergarten. This is about working on plan A, the kindergarten, while we do plan B. Once this begins, there will be little to no stopping or standing around. It will be full steam ahead. But for this week – we stop and rest before the “madness” begins.
Ironically, today as I was looking for a Christian song to motivate me; this song popped up: Stand Still and Let God Move. That’s what I have been trying to do this week. AND this is so very hard for me, a doer. But it has also helped me to remember – we had a plan B. Is it time to start plan B? Do we still work on the kindergarten? God doesn’t speak so I can hear Him. Maybe I am not listening close enough. It seems like He always has to give me a nudge or a big push.
So if it seems to you like nothing has been happening - we are standing still for a moment “letting God move.” Stay tuned for plan B.
