Yesterday I looked down at my breakfast…at that tiny sliver of toast and that empty coffee cup and thought “man that is how I feel.”
Yep. I feel like a dry sliver of toast and an empty coffee cup.
This season has felt exceptionally busy for us. There is no margin. And we are ok with that. We have named it as a season, we know there’s an end in sight, and we are putting our heads down and pushing through.
Then, later that same day, the Lord used an innocent photo clear out to help my perspective. I stopped to delete some photos from my phone and saw so much Goodness. So much Overflow. So much Abundance.
And I am reminded how these things can coexist. You really can have long days and short years. You can want no one to touch you and somehow everyone to snuggle you in the same hour. You can feel strung out and tired and at the same time your cup is running over.
Life is so complicated.
Good and hard coexist.
Rest and busyness coexist.
Chaos and abundance coexist.
I am so grateful for this life with these people. Even when I feel like a dried sliver of toast, I do not want to forget the abundance of it all.
