All I know to do when I don’t know what to do.
When there are no words, your words help. Thank you.
Thank you for this. I needed it today.
You described a day in the life with me & my 4 tinies (age 3m-6yr) and put words to why I want so much to "love all of the sacredness that remains still around us and in us". I play snakes & ladders with one boy. I let another boy think he's actually trapped me in his goodnight hug. I nearly cry when another boy looks adoringly at me and gives me his first kiss on my cheek. And then I relish the sweet giggles of our newest edition. Not taking it for granted & praying through it.
Thank you Sarah, this is such an important message. When our world feels like it has shifted on its axis (as our collective seems to have done and my individual has done as I write this sitting by my Mom's bedside as she works to leave her body and go to God) and we feel we are on shaky ground we look within. As you said, we see the sacred in the ordinary and be grateful for it while we pray. So simple, yet we are called to step up and do it rather than lament and pontificate.
I thought I had written this as I read it. Of course not, but the tale is so very relatable. I’ve been humming “Just as I am lord” and “Let it be” almost constantly as I go about living.
Thank you for revisiting this essay and re-sharing.
Exactly what I needed today. Thank you. ❤️
This is beautiful. So grateful for your voice especially with all the brokenness in the world around us right now.
Love 💜 With you.
