Sometimes God gives you a glimpse.A glimpse into other peoples lives.
Lives that are sometimes broken and bandaged.
A glimpse into her hopes and dreams.
Hopes and dreams that can sometimes be dashed by others.
A glimpse of something you would rather not see.
Because it makes you feel helpless.
Sometimes God gives you a glimpse so that you will know how blessed you are.
A glimpse that humbles you.
Because you wonder what you did to deserve this life.
A glimpse that may keep you up all night.
Because it frightens you.
Sometimes God gives you a glimpse.
And you need to have faith.
And you need to pray.
And you need to be thankful.
That he trusted you with it.
And he asks you to find the colour.
And you do.
Because that is the kind of world you want for your children.
About this blog carnival: “The world I want for my children” is an effort to support The Joyful Heart Foundation, which was founded by Law & Order: SVU actress Mariska Hargitay to help victims of sexual assault mend their minds, bodies and spirits and reclaim their lives. Today, the foundation is at the forefront of an effort to end a disheartening backlog of tens of thousands of rape kits in labs across the country, a backlog that contributes to a rapist’s 80 percent chance of getting away with his crime. The backlog and its detrimental effects will be the topic of an SVU episode on September 29th.
Please help us raise awareness for this important work. What kind of world do you want for your children? Write your post and link up here.
*note~ *Every Post linking up to Joyful Heart Foundation brings the backlog of kits closer to an end.*
Please don't worry, all is good at Bungalow'56.
We are experiencing a few growing pains in the high school of "hard knocks." Whoever (me) thought parenting became easier as your children got older? Had it all wrong. These past few days have allowed me to truly appreciate the life that I have. It is a gift I unwrap daily.
