The school room sits just now saturated in deep golden sun light. I study the way the leaves shadow dance on the walls. HIS creation is endless and endlessly pleasing. I am letting the kids sleep in on a Monday, a school day! I need a little more time here. Time to sit with Jesus and time to pray for each child by name. My husband. By name. Time to hold each one right here in my prayers, bringing them close to me, to this tender heart. Praying for family. For friends. For strength. For peace.
