Thursday I caught AJ playing with . . . batteries! He had pulled the box of batteries out and was setting them up all over the floor. And he was thoroughly entertained. I'm thinking I could save a lot of money this way.
I am a woman saved by grace, learning to repent over and over again. Like generations of saints before me, God has placed me in a difficult place to reveal my sin and to show His goodness, might, and grace in the midst of my circumstances. Moses had his Israelites in the middle of a dessert. My mission: a single mom in a household of BOYS!
"Rejecting joy to stand in solidarity with the suffering doesn't rescue the suffering .... The brave who focus on all things good and all things beautiful and all things true, even in teh small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest Light to all the world. When we lay the soil of our hard lives open to the rain of grace and let joy penetrate our cracked and dry places, let joy soak into our broken skin and deep crevices, life grows."
