As we prepare to move tomorrow, for the 2nd time in 4 months, I realize how beautiful my life is. Just like my current backyard, I can feel cramped and small in my life. Things can seem to overwhelm me and make my head simply spin. Sometimes my life can feel out of place and confusing, like an Indian Mound in a neighborhood. But many times I see my surroundings and am blessed. Like the bush in the back yard, my old home (the one we are moving back to) is shelter, and safe. It is by far not fancy, and many times lets the dirt in. But if you catch it at the right moment, it glows...with love, with open arms, and with a cozy feeling telling you it is home. I am glad to be going home, to be snuggling in with my family and praying for those illuminate moments to share!
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26
