matt and i took a walk today, wandering down old familiar streets in our neighborhood. the cars kept wiring past to homes unseen. drops clung to empty limbs above from our week of gray cold rain. its been a comforting gray, a bundle up tight gray. my heart has been distracted lately amongst the myriad of details swarming around of people to be seen, making food, photography, summer plans and trips, tickets, growing families, a blog called “mundane faithfulness” (about a mom who is processing her own death by cancer, life, family, purpose and God–i highly recommend it), card making, finishing chronicles II, and service in the church.
a friend said last night that she was processing the difference between her sacrifice and mercy–that God doesn’t her sacrifice. it made me think about all that i do for others and my motivations. (sigh). hope you all have had a great week 🙂
