Munday Love

I was caught this morning between desiring my children to be responsible and wanting to take care of them. It is a blessed struggle in the midst of the mundane of a Monday.

I wonder, doesn’t God our Father struggle with this?

What does God long for me to take responsibility for? Or you? Or all of us?

That love flows from God and takes care of us always.

Turn around or look ahead because love is waiting to flow over, wash out, fill up. And, then nourished, we have Spirit enough to respond, to take responsibility, to Love.

Thanks be to God for that Love and for all these little loves:
