If we could talk right now…

If we could talk right now here’s what I would say…

Because right now he’s making a card at the kitchen table, he’s eating baby snacks in the floor, and 3 are jumping on the trampoline in summer clothes.

Life is crazy. Some days I feel like I’m barely holding on. The sign in the kitchen says, “Life is not an emergency.” But it feels like that sometimes. I curse the sign and say yes it is.

He just wiped away tears as he quoted Psalm 40:16, 17 for his online teacher. We are done with school today. Maybe we want to be done for the year.

After struggling through the verses I watched him pick her up, carry her down the steps, and gently place her in the grass. I can’t teach that.

I don’t know where you are today. Maybe you’re scrambling to get a blog post typed before someone loses their mind. Maybe you’re thinking through lunch plans. Maybe all of this seems pointless.

You are not alone. You are loved more than you know. God is so, so faithful. Maybe your biggest burden and your biggest blessing are one and the same.

But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the Lord!” As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God!” (Psalms 40″16,17)
