my own most-read post
Bless the merciful as they carry our own burdens with us, and we cannot know how low they are bowed with the grief of the whole world groaning for justice and peace. Bless the ones who serve without fanfare or book deals or conference attention. Bless the ones who love their children, day after day after day, without thought of a speaking career or a MOPS invitation. Bless the ones who care for the aging and the dying, for those making the way a bit smoother for the families left behind. Bless the ones who hold the hands of the poor and broken and you and me. Bless the ones running right towards the hurting, instead of running away like the rest of us.

I was thrifting old frames for Annie’s new “own” room this week and came across this gem.
This kind of stuff just makes me so happy.
“I think of these desert years of mine, not of my choosing.Maybe if it were all smooth and comfortable, if my pride and professionalism were defining life for me, God’s steel-quiet, penetrating word would have been lost in the babble and sheen of success.” ~ Luci Shaw
