It’s Five Minute Friday! Come on over to Lisa Jo’s and join the party. There is fun, fellowship, a prompt and five minutes of pure writing. I hope you join in!
The truth is, some days are harder than others. Some days require more of you than you think you’re willing or able to give. But there is also sun among those shadows. Because the ultimate truth is that his love is new each day, and by that grace we are given the opportunity to receive and share his love and purpose. The beauty is that with each new day, new dawning sunrise, is a new opportunity
, and that hope in the morning springs eternal.
So even though last night was hard, I know that today may be different. I am strengthened in the knowledge that yesterday I too was a child of my Father, and likely broke his heart in ways I never knew. But today he is showing be the everlasting beauty of forgiveness. And if it is so freely given to me, why should I not so freely share it?
Today there may be new giggles and cuddling. Today there may be new conversations that bring me to tears from laughter. Today there may be new joys that come from challenges overcome, hurdles lept, or a new found peace within their heart. Tonight we will follow tradition and snuggle together over movies and popcorn. Today I will remind myself of the blessings of motherhood, even when the pain from yesterday still lingers.
There is grace today, and that is a truth I can cling to.
