And life in general seems in flux. We are re-evaluating lots of things. We are seeking the Lord. What do you want our life to be like? What do you want for us and our kids? Where are we to be and what are we do be doing? Sometimes it is very clear others it is not. Hey, that is life right? I do love peace and comfort. I like to feel like everything is in it's place. I'm not there right now and it causes me to pray many, many times a day. That is a gift in this time. Prayer causes me to align myself with the Holy Spirit.
This Saturday marks 4 years since Brian died and that makes me think of heaven a little more than usual. The chaos that is my dailiness makes me want to be in heaven all the more. I feel a little weary with the sin and weight of the world. It makes it hard to do more than put one foot in front of the other. There are lots of great things like happy kids and trips and soccer games and a wonderful husband. It feels like just reporting those things wouldn't reflect the place of my heart at the moment. I'm not sad or down just pensive.
So, in the last days I have been listening to this song about heaven which brings much comfort. I will leave you with it.... Some lines that I like.
"When the last tear fades there is love, love, love." "When we look back on these tears they will just be old tales."
One day, my kid will be cough free forever and that will just be an old tale that I can hardly remember. What a beautiful day....
