Can I just say? - I had a wonderful time at a meeting of homeschool moms, both last night and tonight. Can I just say? - speaking my fears of failing my kids outloud, my confession that meals are now non-existent and laundry continues to pile up to women who have learned to nurture their families and still have a frozen bird in the package when dinner time arrives is a tremendous sigh of relief for my soul. Can I just say? -
"Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you;
he rises to show you compassion.
For the LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are those who wait for him!"
This I know. Dark times come, when the vision of the path is more firmly seen in your memories than the ground before your feet. When the only thing to be done in the darkness is cling to the promise and the hope and the assurance that comes from knowing the Lord. And in the darkness, fumbling, timid steps of waiting, as things unseen seem large enough to consume, there is the persistent whisper - "open your eyes."
"See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. Each man will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. The mind of the rash will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear." Isaiah 32:1-4
Can I just say? - Jesus is always everything He's promised He will be to me. Savior, Redeemer, Master, Friend - the Light of my Path.
Can I just say? - I had a great time last night and tonight and I'm looking forward to Classical Conversations and the next steps on the path starting tomorrow.
Can I just say? - Hallelujah and Amen.
"he will quiet you with his love"
