Weekend pieces of my heart
Hand raising, lung filling, good worship.
My parents came by today and it had been ages since we had caught up with them. It was funny because a neighborhood kiddo came to the door earlier in the morning and I was so excited thinking it was my Mama swinging by on her way home from church... when it wasn't I felt sad. Then an hour later I got both of them. It made my heart so happy. Sometimes, no matter how old you get, you just need a hug from your parents. Amen?
Adrain and I have been laughing because every single place we turn this week, we are getting hit with encouragement. We are basking in it right now. We were getting so depleted and though we don't know what our future holds, and still very much in need of rescue, we feel like we're emotionally being given what we need to sustain us until that rescue comes.
I've been reading the Relentless Tenderness of Jesus by Brennan Manning again (one of my all time favorite books) and that knowledge that we are precious and beloved by our creator washes over me like a flood. I look back at the notes I wrote in the margins years ago, the highlighter lined pages, and a few tear-marked passages and I can't believe I ever forget... that I am precious and that He delights in me. Still counting on that rescue!
