My heart is crying out that there is an Emergency in America today because we have been so concerned with our own personal rights, with our own personal spaces, with our personal appearances (OMG! My roots are so 2020!), that we have forgotten that as Christians, we are commanded to GO.
And then I realized that maybe we’re learning something in this storm of pandemic and quarantine and social distancing. Maybe we’re learning some things as a family that I don’t want to unlearn when the world goes back to normal.
When all of this mess is over, I hope that we don’t forget to play hide and seek out back in the woods. Someday, when they bring their significant others to meet us, we all run out there like we did today and hide deep in the leaves and bear poop, listening.
How could it not be a good day, crunching through the dry leaves, listening to praises to Jesus from little voices? Hearing them cast their cares onto the worthy shoulders of the King who conquered death? It was a moment I will remember for my entire life.
