Monday Confessions

  Hello friends, I have had a crazy Monday with the kids. We went to the Y with my mom this morning in her town in Maryland. Unfortunately after a short time swimming in the indoor pool, an elderly man had a collapse and we were all evacuated out. I have been thinking over a lot of things this morning like the brevity of life, how people respond in an emergency, and even trying to teach my children the well being of others is more important than our preferences. The kids didn't quite understand why their swimming adventure was cut so short although they witnessed the collapse of the man. When a team was gathered around the man working, I led a prayer with my kids. It's not necessarily miraculous on our part, but it recognizes WHO is in the business of the miraculous! These are certainly teachable moments...

So after the events of this morning, and probably the weather, I am in somber mood. It seems silly to share my trivial confessions. As we lead up to Easter though, I've been trying to have consistent devotions. This morning reminded me that the Cross was the entire purpose of Christ. 

"The heart of salvation is the cross of christ. The reason salvation is so easy to obtain is that it cost God so much. The cross was the place where god and sinful man merged with tremendous collision and where the way to life was opened. But all the cost and pain of the collision was absorbed by the heart of God" ~Oswald Chambers 

Hope you all have a wonderful week and check back next week for more confessions and hopefully some mini session photography!
