We are blessed. This morning, I am refreshed with God's mercies renewed. I can do this. I have so much to be thankful for. There is so much beauty begging to be seen through the struggles that we are facing right now. I am so incredibly blessed...and today I will face the struggles with a renewed sense of hope. Thanks to friends who listen to my struggles, cry with me, laugh with me and help remind me that what we are doing here in the trenches is God's work and even when I miserably fail...
...of course, the teenagers aren't up yet :)
...and now I understand why teenagers are wired to sleep late in the mornings...so their parents have more time to pray and read scripture that will carry them all through the day!
