“You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14
This June will mark two years of Morgan and mom being full time buddies. That’s when Morgan’s schedule became our schedule. For the most part, we’ve adapted well. There has been lots of unexpected joy. I never know what that girl’s going to get me into. 😉 But truthfully, I’ve had my struggles. There was that moment of realization in this new normal, when I finally conceded, that my personal wants and needs would have to be placed on the back of life’s shelf indefinitely. It was, and still is, quite humbling. I remind myself often that God doesn’t waste anything, or anyone. He can use us in whatever situation we are in, if we make ourselves available.
I’m not just Morgan’s mom. I’m Allison’s mom. I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister, a neighbor, a friend, a community member,… More importantly, I’m God’s child. I do have a little plot of influence. I believe I am still able to do whatever He calls me to. It’s not a lot of acreage, but it’s my little piece of the planet. I want to stake out the property lines wisely. I want to take the best care of what He’s deeded to me.
I have been so blessed, that frankly, when He’s done with me here, I’m more than ready to go home. In the meantime, I’m thankful for every opportunity, every “hill”, He gives me and Morgan. I want us to be an encouragement to others who might feel forgotten on the back of life’s shelf. If that’s you, I want you to know God sees you there. Every morning Morgan and I say a prayer together, to be a light that leads others to Him, and his perfect love. Some days we shine a little brighter than others. He’s still working on our wicks. 😉
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope!
