The bustle. The bustle of breathing throughout the day, the bustle of kids to dress and press and clean and feed. The bustle of dressing and pressing and cleaning and feeding myself. The bustle of Spring Break, the bustle of ministry, work and wife and life. The bustle. Making beds and paperwork and reading and studying and writing and .... The bustle. My problems, our issues, your concerns. Gas in the car, wash the car, feed the dog, change diapers. The bustle.
I have not been diligent in writing and sharing on this blog. I blame the bustle. But, I have prayed! Often when I get caught up in the bustle I also lose sight and lost touch with the Father. Not this time. Seven Foods has kept me in his presence. B/c our need for food and drink and sacrifice and discipline and creativity and community and commitment and counsel and GRACE all pointing to our need for communication with our Father, I have not lost touch. So even amongst the bustle, Seven reminded me to remain in the presence of the Father through prayer. Thank you Seven. Thank you Jen Hatmaker. Thank you Chicken and eggs and green peppers and rice and apples (lots of apples) and tortillas and coffee. Thank you Father.
So, how has it affected you?
