growing pains.

funny how we all want to be grown ups when we are little, isn’t it?

Truth is, growing up hurts. It’s uncomfortable, stretching, challenging, and quite often, in the midst of it, we just want it to stop.

Today, I was reminded so many times about the fact that God gives grace for the moment. Manna. What do you need today? RIGHT NOW? God will give you the grace to face this moment, in this moment. Not a second too early, but most definitely what feels like a whole lot too late. But it isn’t. It’s right on time. After all the tears may be cried out. The tummy in knots. Exhaustion creeping in….peace comes sweeping in.

It’s quiet here now. Except for the cicadas. And that, too, is a bit of grace.
