January 31.

day 31.  
a gift found on paper

in a person
this mother who is the very picture of redemption and so recognizes it in her kids and cheers them on when they are in the desert, a place she knows well.  who is comfort and safety and warmth all rolled into one and lives an invitation to roll up in her and snuggle and who blesses me daily.  who is the first to pray and the first to come and the first to volunteer and the last to complain that there are thirteen kids wreaking havoc on her basement.  this nanny-burd who could eat her babies up.  who speaks to them with clenched teeth because she can hardly stand it, she loves them so.  this person is a gift.  seriously.

in a picture

this is me being real.

  1. I am so humbled by your praise, but God gets all the credit. It's amazing what happens when we get to the end of ourselves, and turn to Him for healing.

    love you deep
