A new normal takes place when a piece of your life shatters. But one day at a time the Lord gives us the strength to pick them back up and fill them back in a new a beautiful way.
“Come, let us return to the Lord.
He has torn us to pieces
but he will heal us;
he has injured us
but he will bind up our wounds.
2 After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will restore us,
that we may live in his presence.”
This is yet another home that has had to take down pictures of a spouse that once was in the home. I come into homes now to help moms rebuild their walls with who they are as a unit this day. My heart is a little more weary on this one and it did not register to me that the first picture I took was in an empty room where I was attracted to the light softly coming in. This empty room was the master bedroom where I froze in time the mother and two children. One thing that can never be taken is your motherhood. And one thing you as a mother can always provide to your children is the steadfast love you have been fashioned to pour out. I understand you will not be able to give as much as you use to, but I am certain all our babies want is our attention, touch, our calm voice. I am a walking example that God has slowly revived me and has restored my family with a love that never was present until I let God love me.
