As I begin the season of Lent, I pray for the grace to just be. In this big, loud, crazy world of ours, I usually end my day with my ears ringing and my heart yearning for peace. As I pray, I have a hard time shutting out the noise and I can only imagine what my children are feeling and experiencing. I have to remind myself to slow down, listen with my whole heart, and breathe. How I usually take breathing for granted! When I am able to get quiet enough to hear the gentle rhythm of my baby's breathing, then I know that I am hearing the whisper and grace of my God.
I invite you to walk with me, Elizabeth, and others as we venture towards grace.
