Life’s not about pits or platforms. It’s not about the mountains or valleys. It’s about moments, lots of them. Lots of ordinary, quiet, mundane moments. Moments where we have to serve God, parent hard, and love even harder. Moments where instead of choosing to be seen we choose to serve. I think we will find in eternity that while we were searching for the spectacular the supernatural passed right by us without notice. Growth is a strange thing and I am certainly feeling its pain but it has value without measure. Oh Father, grow us to maturity.
