I’m in this weird place right now. It’s a hard place. It’s a new place. It’s a place where you can’t help but be so thankful.
Your kids are sick? But they will be well soon.
Your kids have food allergies? At least there’s food to put on the table.
You have to clean the house? You have a house.
The place I’m at: this challenging season. It’s serving to remind me how truly blessed I am. It’s enabling me to trust in the Father. Where there was once only worry there now stands hope and peace. This place where friends pray for you and you cry all over them. Not a sad cry; a woah-my-emotions-are-running-bananas cry. When I talk about how life is going it doesn’t sound very positive. But it totally is. Challenging on the surface; clarifying underneath.
Just keep smiling. Trusting. Following.
And have a dance party in the kitchen.
And then make some cookies with some of your favorite people.
And then have a pizza party with some more faves.
Life is good, even when it’s hard. Hey, that’s a lot like parenting…
“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19
