Have you ever tried meditation? What did you think about? How did you feel? What did God show you about yourself? About Him? We'd love to hear about your experience!
There's one kid running naked, protesting against the shower I'm trying to muscle him into. The other one knows better than to flee by foot, and unintentionally continues to smear black goo across the bathroom floor. He stayed to clean the mess they'd just made together. Grandma left her mascara in the guest bathroom and well, the rest is history. The dog's barking and darts in and out of my legs as I walk. Not even able to hear my own thoughts, I run back and forth between the two crime scenes a couple of times, uncertain about where to begin.
I own exactly four unfinished journals. They sit stoic (and a little bit dusty) on my office bookshelf. The idea of journaling is idyllic to me, but the reality is much less fantastic. I'd begin with a vigor - writing down thoughts and prayers, pulling scripture, and becoming astounded by the sneak peaks of grace that God allows.
And after a while, they'd sit.
