The hurts and pains upon our hearts make us cry and whimper and we just want it to be all better. But healing takes time.
While this definitely wasn’t the most perfect, intentional, awe-worthy Christmas, we were oh so blessed the entire month long.
I would be lying if I said that the transition has been easy. But God has definitely made this place our home.
My hope and prayer for 2014 is that there be more margin in my schedule, more blank spots on my calendar, less clutter and mess in my home, more stillness in my spirit, more breathing room in my mind, and more room in my heart for God.
Because whether I was wrong – or the critic was wrong – coming face to face with my mistakes is what pushes me closer to Jesus.
Allume is such a giving community. The people involved give – over and over and over.
