You were in the laughter of my baby, a gift that fills my heart. You were in the kisses of my daughter and the feel of her arms around my neck. You were in the peace I felt as I waited for my husband to return home. You were in the strength I had to keep going as the coffee ran out. You were in the patience I found when nap time neared and frustration was high.
I remembered You when I realized I faced a visit from Micaela's new therapists with anticipation, not fear. I waited for them to pull up in our winter drive way and I wondered how You would show Yourself during our visit. I was not disappointed. Your Grace is ever present when I share Micaela's story and see the wonder on faces as they realize the miracle she is.
Today I was so close to you. Your presence is more beautiful than the greatest treasure. You peace is more precious than gold.
Oh, that I might never wander from this protection. That you might be felt so clearly everyday.
Help my heart to stay, not to wander.
Keep my eyes fixed on You.
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
