Have you ever ridden a bike uphill? To me that’s the picture of struggle. You fight gravity, you push yourself, your muscles ache, but what triumph when you reach the top!An excerpt from today’s reading:
“Teach us that the reason I must climb the hill is because Your house is there.”
“Christ’s truth teaches us not freedom from sorrow but freedom through sorrow.”
On a side note – hope all of you have a great mother’s day. Mine was wonderful so far…breakfast in bed. Two lovely homemade cards from my kids. My son ‘gave’ me the song Beautiful by Mercy Me which of course made me cry. And my dh gave me new pj’s and baking dishes (that I’d asked for). Sweetness all around!
