Before I headed out for the day, I checked in with Everyday Mommy to see the results for the Writing from the Heart contest she hosted last month. Although I haven’t read all the entries, I’m working my way through the list. If you’d like to be encouraged (and hear the testimonies about how children teach US about God), hang out there this week during your blogging time. They’re rather diverse AND insightful.
My entry, if I’m not mistaken, had the most comments I’ve ever received on a post. It certainly was heartfelt, almost painful to write…but ultimately redemptive. A warm smile is curling around my lips right now as I consider the irony (?) of my most “challenging” child being the one who has taught me the most about God…. To me, THAT…is…beautiful :).
