Everyday is a new day...

I have this sudden desire to write. Life seems to always have some challenge in it. The prayer is always to learn from the challenge. Being back in school is a challenge, the same challenge it has always been for me. A silly battle with procrastination, and lack of motivation, but on the other side, I get a lot from classes.... and I am blessed in the conversations there. It will be two more years before I get my degree in Counseling. I sometimes wonder If I can keep it up.

And then, there is my family. It's very hard for me to see them struggle through things. It's not all that bad, and God's grace over them is tremendous, and a balm to my soul, but I still must daily lift them up to Him.. and trust. My heart desires so much for them, as does God's heart, and they have been blessed. We are blessed in simply having one another. I am so thankful for that.

Liam is 13, growing up fast, and having to learn important life lessons he never went looking for, but that have simply come to him with becoming a young man. So handsome, with the girls giving him extra attention. Kaylee is 8, and is becoming a young lady before our eyes. She gets home from school, and without needing to be asked by her parents, rushes to the kitchen table to do homework. She really cares about that sort of thing. I wish I was that way when I was young! She is the sensitive one, with a witty sense of humor. Aiden is six, and is the one with the big heart. He sees things in a greater depth than many his age, and has eyes that see things others cannot. That is a gift from God I pray is cultivated well... and not manipulated to draw him from what is true. Oh, but God has heard our prayers for them...... I know that well. 

Everyday is a new day to learn of the most important things. I pray I have the eyes to see.. and the heart to receive.
