i painted the color black over a sign that once said “bless this nest.” seriously, doesn’t God’s blessing envelope everyone? or only those nests that beckon blessings on a gray slate, with a price tag $14.99? thank goodness that we keep evolving in wisdom, people.
new sign now says: bring good energy… i mounted our mantra by the front door. noah said – “you forgot something, momma”….. i looked over the sign, and there was no room to add another letter…. “you know like our family code,” he said excitedly. wow, i didn’t know we had a family code. he took out his notebook that was shaped like a christmas tree, and drew a heart with two strokes, with the left side uneven from the right.
aw, a smile adorn my worn face as it reminded me. love lives here.
it can sometimes hide in the 4 loads of wash, dirty dog that dug up a bird fossil, seasonal mix of clothes that exploded in closets, floor with identifiable feet tracks, mountains of single socks or a pile of stuffed animals waiting to be stitched up from the same dirty dog that dug up a bird fossil.
love can easily be found again… as noah’s puts it… “in the middle of me and you,” (as he tries to smash the invisible “middle” holding me in a tight hug)
As we are, blest.We love, because He first loved us. John 4:19.
