Good morning, sweet friends. I have missed you! Thank you for your comments and prayers this past weekend. They were not in vain. Not by a long shot.
We are home and we are well.
Do you remember that verse in the Christmas story that says "Mary treasured all these things in her heart"? So much had happened, yet she held it close. That describes pretty well how I'm feeling since we returned from the mountains.
I'm sure there were some pressing Mary for details, encouraging her to talk and share and talk some more. Yet in the midst of the hustle and bustle around her, Mary pondered. Mary treasured. I imagine Mary sat still.
It's no coincidence that so much of the Spiritual Mothering discussion and chapters and examples have focused on Mary. I am learning from her example, from her story.
And so I'm guessing that things are going to be quiet around here for the next little while. I'm going to save my talking, my sharing, my inmost thoughts for Toben.
Thanks for understanding. 'Cause I know you will--y'all are just like that.
