We didn’t count on seeing this wonder tonight. 🌜Mars & the Moon.🌛But He did. He knew we needed this grace-moment to fix our eyes on things above. To remember, His greatness. Our smallness. His working for good and glory, even when things seem dark and distant.
This morning, as my husband and I prayed over a message of freedom to share with our youngest, I knew we would need a place free of distraction...because you know, he’s a boy. :) As we snuggled up on the porch swing, the glow took my breath. And our little nighttime chat suddenly shifted ... for a moment, we let go of being “the parents” and rested with him, simply as children. Beloved children of a brilliant Father. Because, at the end of the day, there’s no freedom better than knowing ~ and being convinced of ~ Whose you are.
May we never lose the wonder.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:13-14
