Simple Sunday Truths

We actually made it to church today. (The last 3 Sundays 2 of the 3 of us have been sick- we didn’t think it would be so nice of us to bring Jonathan to the nursery with green snot pouring from his nose!)

It’s the first Sunday of the month, so Communion was offered. One of the elders came up to share and prepare our hearts to receive the Lord’s Supper. He spoke about his father who passed away 2 weeks ago and left his earthly body behind to go home to his Father. He shared what a joy and privilege it was to be there as he passed, to see his father “BLAZE across the finish line in good form.” It kindled in me such a desire for my son to be able to say that at the end of my life- to give Jonathan the peace of having a mother who ran the race well, whose steps were guided by the Holy Spirit, whose heart was to serve God and her loved ones with a gladness, thanksgiving and joy, and for whom death was merely the close of her chapter here on earth and the beginning of life eternal.

Most days I just try and survive and do the best that I can. But I want more than that, I want my feet set upon God’s path and my eyes and heart set on His glory and goodness. Most days I struggle to even want to want that, but I am so grateful for the days where my heart sings with that desire.

“You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.” Psalm 63:5

    This is my prayer for you and Benjamin and Doug and I as well. It was so cool to see my parents finish well. I agree there are some days all I am thinking about is surviving. Since going Paleo, though I think I am having a bit more energy for daily life.
