I have a crock-pot cookbook with that title. But sometimes I think I want to fix and forget things other than just food.
I have a tendency to be impatient with things that are broken or not working. I want them fixed NOW! All those ugly and disobedient characteristics and habits in my children–I want to discipline them and dismiss them. When someone I care about has a problem or is hurting….sometimes I just want to fix it and forget it. Do you ever feel that way? I know it’s not the way God intended us to handle anything (well, except maybe food in a crock-pot or a toddler’s boo-boo that needs a band-aid and a kiss). And yet, for probably a million reasons, we just want to take care of the problem and not have to hear about it anymore!
I need to file in my mind “Fix It and Forget It” as merely a cookbook and file everything else under “Pray It Out and Wait It Out.”
