My family isn’t perfect.
We have our ups & downs, and sometimes the brokenness is really tough to swallow. I’ve always reminded myself to choose to focus on the good, the positive, the “nice things”. But lately, God is impressing upon my heart to also embrace the fallenness…the awkwardness…the broken parts of people. To allow them to be them. For to love them, is to love every part of them, as they are. To love as Christ loves.
There are times I wish things were different, but I remind myself that we are all made uniquely in His image, and His love & grace will allow me to do what is “supernaturally possible”.
It’s when I have nothing to hold onto, except His presence…that complete surrender happens. And it’s a journey I go through time and time again.
Resting in Him, and giving thanks for His powerful grace.
Best part of the Christmas evening has to be hearing Kaelyn utter, “I love you so much, 姨姨!”
God, You are so good to us. Thank You for the gifts of Christmas. 💞
