It’s that time of year!
For a shopping spree. For wheeling around a cart whoohoo-ing and loading it up. With cars and footballs and princess crowns and lip gloss. With toothbrushes and soap and playing and prayer and squeezing into shoe boxes.
I hope I never forget her giggling and dancing in the aisles and her heart so big it may just burst. And the four year old hiking the ball for the boy so much like him.
And it’s the lunch of fish and bread all over again. Meager offerings to be multiplied by broken hands Who heal. And with the small giving up, we are the more blessed than tiny hands receiving.
We are the more blessed.
