Life comes in so many waves. Sometimes it flows out and sometimes it comes pouring in. And sometimes they collide and create a riptide, doing both at once.
This weekend was the riptide sort.
I spent time with my mom (luv) and found this picture frame to hang a picture of all my kids.
Then I went to the bridal shower of my running buddy’s daughter. Here she is with her daughter… and daughters.
And straight from her game, we headed to Benjamin’s District Playoff game. He won and so did the girls team. Ben made First Team All-League and his coach and Uncle Russ (girls coach) both received coach-of-the-year.
And while all this life was being lived we were being feed updated about the aftermath of a severe car accident. An accident involving a dear friend’s husband and young son that eventually took the life of her baby. My heart…our hearts felt like a new driver was at the wheel pressing his foot on the gas and the break at the same time.
It was right to be happy and it was right to be filled with sorrow. It’s amazing what the human heart is capable of feeling.
Lord, please help Amanda. Please help Chad and the kids. Help them heal and help them find You in the midst of the riptide.
I love what my Sis-in-law wrote here.
And I love what my Pastor said here.
And I love that people are helping like this.
