I don’t know what God’s plans are for our family. But I thank Him that my prayers were answered when he sent Mike to us. He wasn’t just an adorable gift to me (with six pack abs!), but he was a gift (from God) to my family for a time of need that we had no idea would come.
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.
