Small moments

Sometimes the moments just come when you’re least expecting it. I call it harmony -when  all the parts are working together to create a beautiful song.  And watching that moment makes a feeling well up inside that is joyous and humble all at the same time.  At those moments you can’t help but feel blessed; that despite your inadequate parenting, your impatience, lack of consistency, your ________, ( you fill in the blank), it’s actually working.

What do you do in those moments….  congratulate yourself for a job well-done?
It’s tempting, but so much better to thank God for the grace He gives us, shown in the small moments of raising a family.

Sunday night traditions…. potato chips and a game, or in this case drawing fun.:

    Same things! There was a moment last week when I just had to sneak into the sunny sunroom to get a video clip of 2 kids hanging over the back of the couch behind John to look at pictures with him while Damaris practised a song on the piano. It all looked so harmonious that it could have been staged! But a bit of loud whining by Jack added the needed touch of authenticity 🙂
