The Glow Continues

We just stayed home that Wednesday. It had been a long journey, those four seminary classes. And a stressed Mommy tried not to make her fantastic four CSI victims. We all just needed a night. A night to settle. Get into pajamas a little early and enjoy the nothingness of a cleared evening.

But we were waiting for him. Because without him our evening doesn’t end like it should. Nope, I’m not talking about mass chaos breaking out, I’m talking about how they relish in His teaching of God’s Word around the kitchen table.

But tonight was special.

Sometimes you just have to make the ordinary special.

By the power of candles.

It was a glow from some of the 100+ candles from our wedding eight years ago.
They waited so quietly and patiently for his footsteps to cross the threshold after youth group.
The fascination of the flame.


It’s the simple, really,

that makes it all so beautifully extravagant.

-Thankful, grateful and blessed.


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
