If you give Michelle a baby...

If you give Michelle a baby,
first she will have to fill out an adoption application

If she fills out an adoption application,
then she will have to have a home study

If Michelle and Herb have a home study,
then they will have to look at the safety of their home through a magnifying glass

If they inspect the safety of their home,
They will have to pro-actively replace the kitchen floor (and bathroom, but that's another story)

If they decide to replace the kitchen floor,
They will find a great deal on laminate, and continue the new floor to the living room and dining room

If they purchase new laminate,
They will have to remove the old vinyl, sub floor one, linoleum, sub floor two

If they remove the old vinyl, sub floor one, linoleum, sub floor two,
They will discover disgusting water damage from the refrigerator and dishwasher

If they discover disgusting water damage from the refrigerator and dishwasher,
They will have to replace both appliances before the new floor goes in

If they replace the appliances,
Consequently, the refrigerator will literally quit working just a few days before a new one was to be bought

If the refrigerator will literally quit working just a few days before a new one was to be bought,
Herb will remind Michelle of God's sovereign timing.

If Herb reminds Michelle of God's sovereign timing,
Michelle will still have to spend the evening looking for a new fridge

If Michelle spends the evening looking for a new fridge,
She will get frustrated

If she gets frustrated,
She will call her mother in law, vent, and look at consumer reports

If she calls her mother in law, vent, and look at consumer reports,
She will pause for a minute to post her frustration on facebook

If she posts her frustration on facebook,
She will remember to also write a blog

If she writes a blog post,
She will be reminded that all this is for a baby

If she remembers that all this is for a baby,
She is calm, and happy

If Michelle is calm and happy,
Can you give her a baby?

  4. There is a plan for everything. God knows that you won't have time to deal with these things when a baby comes along, so He's taking care of them now. :)
