ahh, saturdays.

This morning is so incredibly blissful…how I would love to spend each morning. Don’t get me wrong, I have a blast on the weekends when we travel, but there is something sweet about staying around home. I woke up and had some great time with the family, and am sitting in Starbucks about to enjoy a cup of coffee with a new friend. And, we will still get to experience the joys of Georgia football…just watching them this evening from our living room. Smile 

Perhaps my most favorite part about Saturdays is that William is home, our family is together, and there is rarely an agenda. We can pretty much just do whatever we want and enjoy one another…which is much needed after a week of stressful work, places to go, deadlines to meet, and a whole host of other things that tempt us to worry. It’s sort of an art to enjoy one another the way we do on a leisurely Saturday during the week in the midst of all the chaos. But, isn’t that what we’re supposed to do? That is what we should be about.

Last night got a little crazy in our house. Evenings are usually “fussy” times for our little ones, but last night “fussy” was definitely an understatement. All three of them were, for their own little reasons, screaming at the their lungs’ maximum capacity. William was being so patient, but after a stressful day at work, I think he was hoping for a little slice of peace or maybe just a moment of quiet when he got home. So, I made the decision to take everyone for a ride. Car rides are great…they generally do the trick. Everyone can get out and shift their focus onto something else. And, it worked! When we got home, it was time to start getting ready for bed.

This whole situation made me think. I want to be able to enjoy my sweet family and not get frustrated after a long week when we have a Friday night meltdown. That’s where the beautiful mystery of grace enters. It’s there all the time. In the moments of peace and quiet and in the moments of screaming and meltdowns. It gives patience and refocuses the tension to the cross…where our focus belongs each minute.

I am so thankful for His grace. I am thankful for this crazy, unpredictable, adventurous time in our family. You never know what will happen next. But no matter what happens, His grace will be there. I want to choose that over whatever else I am tempted to cling to because it is completely sufficient.
