I’m starting to believe that the walls and interruptions of life are where Jesus anchors us, where He hides the surprise. And I’m leaning on a few, catching my breath, and waiting.
Because I don’t want to hide the eggs first, plan for new birth and miss the wonder of resurrection.
Every moment is a gift, even when it’s disguised as an interruption.
As I walk these last days of Lent, I’m scaling the wall at a slant, stepping away from my normal schedule of posting. Praying I’ll see the world a bit larger when I come back. Because right now, it feels like a wool sweater that accidentally got mixed in with the pile of whites.
May your Palm Sunday mark a season of expectancy that fits just right. And enjoy your Sabbath.
Some favorites I read this week:
Delays, Disruptions, and History by Mark Buchanan
The Morning After by Kelli Woodford
What to Do When Your Story Scares You by Jeremy Statton at Prodigal Magazine
Naked And . . . Well . . . Naked by Deidra Riggs
And from a Sabbath sister Cheryl Smith: It’s Time to Do Something About My Social Media Addiction
If you would like to join me in studying Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg, I’m co-hosting a book club with Duane Scott beginning April 3. We’re taking two chapters at a time, engaging in discussion on my Redemptions Beauty Book Club page and offering an opportunity for bloggers to link their posts on discovering the wonder of God.
