My Day

Homemade chocolate candy
Cold cheeks
Tired girls
An evening with everyone home, with plenty of talking and giggles

And this blog, reminding me why this all matters.

Do you remember where you stand and who stands beside you?

I'm pausing to gather my focus. Around me, hurt abounds. Heartbreak, loss, terrible custody battles with precious children stuck in the middle, family turmoil, uncertainty about the future with talk of cliffs and bans and such. But in my home today, we paused. We just stayed in these walls, being together. He is among us. We invite Him in, asking for His guidance, love and grace to be what abounds here.

Let it be so, Lord.
