Since taking over the link-up at #GiveMeGrace, I’ve faithfully posted each week. 132 posts. 132 weeks of connecting, of loving and wrestling. I’ve been late. I’ve pressed pause. But I’ve showed up. The spiritual practice of showing up has been good. But I didn’t post last week. Here’s why.
I preached a sermon on Matthew 3:1-12
and planned a worship service based on the text. Our theme, “Water in the Wilderness” featured dance ministry by moi to ‘Take Me to the Water’ by Nina Simone.
I served with my teens in the Lessons and Carols service at my field site
and did my best to bear this gorgeous, but heavier than you think, cross.
We watched our favorite 1st and 3rd graders sing in their first school concert
and treated them to a sleep over with our god-daughter.
Let’s be honest, this is how some of the work gets done.
It’s been busy but there is light at the end of the tunnel. One more paper to go.
Let your handmaiden find grace in your sight … #GiveMeGrace
and let’s not forget the good stuff in my newsfeed …
