God orchestrates his grace quietly for me; I am so thankful for his consideration as I have a small amount of anxiety when I encounter noise.
Today, it was a sweet email from my friend Tracy who walks this path with me....without her daughter. She shared words from another mom on this side of the fence and commented on this last line:.
"I live my life and go on BECAUSE of you. Not because I forgot you, but because I remember you."
The emphatic declaration this sentence makes represents a more confident woman than I. I am working to write a sentence with that kind of imperative.
Nevertheless, Tracy's words, the feelings she conveys, remind me that I am not crazy. She and my family and friends like her are the "rod and the staff" God promises made manifest in my life to comfort me. Holy - how the metaphor of Psalm 23 illustrates itself in the brokenness of our lives.
Thankful for my circle and the goodness and mercy they provide.
