Sometimes, gratitude’s game of hide-and-seek proves more efficient than others. Enter no post Friday. I’ve been looking for that tricky, treasured practicum (finding joy in all circumstances) high and low the last 48 hours. At last, FOUND. As the children and I blessed our lunch, beseeched the Lord to fill the three empty seats at the table, and praised HIM for each moment of this journey, I found it. Eucaristeo: Our family shares a common desire, which is unceasingly taken before the Lord, and a commitment to praise Him. Our hearts and prayers align as we pray home our terrific trio, whose presence seems long overdue, and trust Him along the way. It is no small thing that the Lord has given a mutual rhythm to 6 very distinct people.
We persist together on common ground: "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
