I have a lot I would like to share. I’ve been a picture-taking fiend lately, as I always seem to become in spring. More so because I’m trying to preserve this unique time in my life and that of my family.
But time, never something I had much of, has pretty much evaporated in the intensity of parenting kids through a stay-at-home order. Thus it is that this photo, which I took while walking around the block last week and intended to share on Friday (or at least Saturday?) is coming out now, as we emerge from Easter Sunday and return to our unplanned home schools. It’s the message I most need to hear. It’s the uncertainty, the bigness, of the whole question, that overwhelms. And isn’t this, after all, the reality of all the spiritual life? It’s all too big for us. Like Corrie Ten Boom’s suitcase, life comes at us one day at a time because it’s all we can actually handle.
