I am that butterfly in the cacoon waiting to hatch- developing in spirit, mind, body, emotion, motherhood, and marriage.
Not yet.
I was led to Psalm 121 today.
" I lift my eyes up to the hills-
from where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.
He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day; nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life;
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore."
It's such comfort to know in these uncertain times while I am Claire's keeper that there is a greater keeper over me. He knows my ins and outs, ups and downs. He teaches me and prepares me to be a disciple. Just as I keep Claire- protect her but allow her to flourish and grow and learn- He keeps me. Simply because I exist, He glories in and through me. But there will be more.
As I continue to sleep and rest, He neither slumbers nor sleeps.
In the meantime, we need access to one another's faith to keep our faith.
Read the Psalms. There you'll have access to another's faith (-Marilyn Elliot)
We long for someone to be attentive to our lives. To have interest in where we go and who we become. Perhaps this is why we have Facebook. Sadly, no one can keep up with our lives in the way that we long for (though a spouse come somewhat fulfill this desire).
That is what our Keeper does though. He sees our face daily - without the internet, without a cell phone, tv, or computer, without a mirror....
A little deeper than usual I know, but I wanted to share.
