Well, one of the joys of being part of a church family is that even though I am new here, I have a community to support me. Enter Mrs Barbara. Our dear friend. Joy of my children. She played with my kids all afternoon while I scrubbed my fridge and ran to the grocery store (ALONE).
When I signed the form saying that I would support my husband's itineracy, I had this vague notion that it would mean moving around. But I didn't understand the temptation to give into feeling dislocated. There are days that I would love to wallow in my "alone"-ness, but the truth is that I am not alone. The Kingdom of God is present in our world, and if we allow God to break into our selfish moments, we will see the greater truth: that God is a gracious, good God who longs for his children to embrace God and each other.
Who do you see who needs to have the Kingdom break in on their life?

|Ok...I am nesting...but is was gross. To be fair, I started labeling the fridge months ago. (The day before I found out I was pregnant...hmmm)|
|And my fairy godmother bestowed a hidden gift upon me for my trouble. I found it in the bottom of the fridge...you would have thought I had found a million dollars.|
