A Different View


One of our children wants to ski.  We’ve taken our kids a couple of times but to be honest it isn’t our thing. 

Yet maybe it is their thing?

Today I have been looking at a different view compared to other Sundays. Rather than being on a trail, I am at the mountain watching our child ski.

It’s a different view for me, yet one of many changes in scenery I will be experiencing as our kids grow up.

It’s easy to stay in our patterns; what we know and do, and what our natural tendencies are.  Yet, we want our children to be who they are, not who we are.  This will require us to shift from our comfortable patterns and experience new things, like we did today.

I share this with you because we all have our comfortable spaces and places. Yet we sometimes can get narrow vision seeing only from those points of view.  I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

May we be willing to step out of our bubble of comfort in order to help our loved ones grow more fully into who they are meant to be.  It may require us to experience a different view, but maybe that view is just what we need to help us grow as well.

With love and hope,
