You’re asleep now and my heart bubbles over with moments we shared this morning as a family:
cuddles and cartoons on the couch,
playing blocks and colouring on the floor,
dancing and singing to worship music turned loud,
jumping and bum drops on the bed,
an hour long tub party that ended with daddy rocking you amidst the suds, while you nestled in the nape of his neck and asked for lullabies on repeat.
These simple moments of connection- the everyday ordinary moments- are so full of grace we scarcely miss them them if we’re not careful.
Life can beckon us to move, to do and to go, when The Lord calls us to draw near, to be still and linger a little longer.
you came along and turned my life –my heart– inside out.
You showed me where life is truly found.
Where joy, peace and love are hiding.
But they aren’t really hiding. They’re right there for the taking; we must just choose to be present to receive them.
Seasons change and so do our circumstances but these things remain.
Rooted in Christ and found with eyes wide open to the people and the moments right in front of us, peace, joy and love remain: always, unchanging.
