“Our hearts made room for each other as the world spun around. The birth of an unexpected family that would walk untold miles together, bound forever by the palpable nearness of God, who does not turn away from our sadness and shares the richness of our joy.”
-Shannan Martin, Falling Free
Emotions were pretty loop-de-loopy around here earlier this week. Out-of-this-world highs, uncomfortable lows, and not a whole lot of time for anything in-between. Roller coaster- weeee! Things seem to be leveling out more as the week moves toward the weekend though, and no matter our moods, at the end of each day, Everything in me always whispers, “be thankful for it all“. The blessings, the challenges, the thin-between. They all add up to growth and healing…especially the challenges.
So this Thought-Full Thursday, I am thankful for every curve, plunge and crest…and that my family is bound forever by the palpable nearness of God, who does not turn away from us when we’re struggling, and shares the richness of our out-of-this-world joy. 🙂
PS- I’m reading sweet Shannan’s book right now, and highly recommend it!
