I was completely overwhelmed today. In a good way.
Your comments on yesterday’s post were the icing on the cake.
I want so badly to tell you about it, but I just can’t yet.
No, we’re not having a baby.
Last night on our walk, we were talking about everything that’s happening with Lucky Luxe. We talked about all the loud and clear signs God has been sending us constantly in the last month (you’re all part of the signs—bet you didn’t realize it, did you?). It feels like every single day, he’s all but calling us on the phone and spelling things out for us. And for the first time in a very long time, we’re going with it. The episcopal church is just a few steps from our front door. They leave the church open all through the night for prayer. Around midnight, as we were walking past at the end of our (very long) walk, we stepped inside, into the safety of that ancient sanctuary. It smells like wood polish inside, a holy and solemn smell in my memory. It was silent, and dark, with only the low light of the wall sconces and a few candles burning at the altar. We went to it, and lit 2 candles and knelt there together and held each other tight and prayed. And I’ve never felt such a feeling of comforting peace wash over me.
We’re making some big decisions this week. And suddenly, the way we should take was perfectly clear. and we went to sleep without worry.
Today was completely calm.
And I think we’re ready for just about anything.
