My soul cleaves to the dust;
Revive me according to Your word.
I have told of my ways, and You have answered me;
Teach me Your statutes.
Make me understand the way of Your precepts,
So I will meditate on Your wonders.
            -psalm 119:25-27 nasb

every day i read Sara Hagerty's adoration instagram

last year i read the book Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg.  

both have been such gifts in regards to awe and wonder and focus on Who Christ Is.

and it has been extremely tempting lately to think with these amazing words, what could i possibly add?  that's partly why it's been quiet around here. which is just plain...ridiculous.  but there it is.  moving on....

my daughter and husband are over in the kitchen heads bent over the f (x) and the function of y and and some such algebraic equation to figure out something about the weight and height of some random basketball player.  

i tried to help.  but i kept saying the same thing and she said, "no mom, that's not right," and i said, "but yes, isn't it?"  and "why are you asking me?"

so dad was called in and he sits next to her and asks the questions that lead to understanding and they wrestle through it and tears come but they keep going and eventually the tears dry up and understanding replaces confusion and hope of completing the assignment returns.

the help of a father that works.

i sit back and observe.  not to compare and condemn.  but intrigued by the process.  especially because i've been sitting here in psalm 119:25-32.  

Let me understand the teaching of Your precepts; 
     then i will meditate on Your wonders.
-psalm 119:27 niv84 

 

hmmm....if the video doesn't work, try this one

 

words have been hard to come by lately-not sure what is completely up with that.  hoping to continue writing more regularly here....maybe even finish the month off with adoration and wonder?  thank you for grace.
