Tonight was lovely.
I'm not even sure what was so special about it, other than it was normal, and sometimes that's where the beauty lies. In the ordinary, everyday happenings.
I went to Walmart with my mom and bought clothes and ate at Chick-Fil-A.
We picked up kids and went to church, getting there nearly late but it's okay because we can never get started on time.
Once the service was going, seven teens filed down the side of the sanctuary into a small room on the corner of the church, where lots of laughter takes place.
We learned about Naaman and leprosy, played game, and just laughed.
After church was over, I hung out with a few of the others. We sat with our feet dangling over the edge of the ramp, looking out over the cemetery, and ate popsicles and talked about life and laughed some more.
And I reflected on how this night, this life, is an ordinary but beautiful thing.
We don't have to have it all together. We don't have to know what's going on. We don't have to do things that would be labeled 'amazing' by the world's standards.
We're called to shine His light. To live, and laugh, and love.
And bask in the beauty of being free to live this wild and precious life.
Not at all what I had planned, but we're going to call this a make-up post since I missed Saturday's post. I'll be back this weekend, and then I'm taking most of the month off. Doing lovely, normal, life things.
What beautiful, normal things have y'all been up to lately? Anyone as hyped about summer as I am?
Live free, y'all. <3
