How wonderful it is to give Jesus those little thieves that rob me of joy.
There have been nights when I haven’t fallen asleep quickly but those have become opportunities to talk to God in the darkness. They are no longer frustrations that build into exasperations.
There have been days when the “what ifs”… and the “if onlys” have flooded my mind with heaviness but they have become intentional moments to stop and “reset” my thoughts.
In peace, I can breathe and observe and laugh.
In peace, I can live lightly.
In peace, I can see Jesus in the ordinariness of life . . . and hold onto hope.
