I asked God to help me see, really see, what was real, true and lasting...not just what was temporary. He showed me love. He showed me laughter. He showed me precious little developing hearts that need lots of support to figure out what to make of this big world and their place in it.
He reminded me again that I need Him to run this race. If I take off without Him, my true colors will invariably shine through--and that's not necessarily pretty.
Thank you, God, for restoration.He also showed me the importance of rest...for them and for me. Now I am off to enjoy some!
