We wake up to hungry cries, arms pulling up and around, sweet sleepy faces snuggled into warm blankets and fresh bottles.
The sun rises again in the East. Again and again it knows it’s place and time and job and does exactly what it was created to do.
We move forward, out into the day and do it all again. Daycare, work, school, meals, playing, bedtime, bathtime. The moon rises to say goodnight and those hungry cries, arms snuggled around, sleepy eyes focused on the face of the one who feeds her – we do it all again.
And I wonder where in this circle of “again” do I figure out my place? When does routine and habit become calling? Fulfilling what I was created to do, not what I must do as a responsible adult?
I probably won’t figure it out today.
But grace comes new in the morning and I have another chance to try.
So sleepy feet slide into fuzzy slippers and as the sun rises, I’ll look to the Son – the one who knows all the answers to my when’s, how’s, and why’s and I’ll wait.
And if I don’t figure it out today?
I’ll try again tomorrow.
Keep at it, sweet friends. Tomorrow is a new day.
