It seems that life is busier lately.
Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. Maybe I'm just slower. Of course, that would be bothersome, because I have always been slow. (I was three weeks late for my own birth and I haven't caught up yet!) So "slower"would not be good news for my family.
I also think that having children whose ages span nearly 21 years brings its own kind of busyness. Grandmother delights plus homeschooling plus late (late!) night chats with a young adult...all good. Having guests in our home, investing in family, investing in friendships, creating...also good. I would not trade any of it! It just means that blogging (and vacuuming) must sometimes take a back seat to the more urgent.
I have been gathering my moments...for isn't the best of life lived "in the moment"? Small slices of time, choosing the best, noticing the small things that are really the big things, making memories, keeping those memories tucked away in your heart? I'll be sharing my March moments sometime soon. It may be that you'll be so over March by the time I get there, for time marches on (pun accidental) and April is now and there are new moments to live and choices to make. But these monthly "gatherings" are a record for me and I love to look back and read the story of His hand in my life.
I have listened to this song over and over and over again as I have driven my minivan to and fro. That is my style. A song will grab my attention, and then I hyper-focus on it, listening, singing, meditating, soaking it in. This as been "my song" lately. As I linger over it, I feel immense gratitude, I feel awe, I feel deeper faith welling up in my spirit. Faith in my loving Father. Faith that enables me to trust Him with everything. Everything.
If you can, take a few moments to listen to this story of an awesome plan of awesome grace.
May your celebration of His resurrection be a celebration of His grace in your life!
Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
