A Holy Moment

'momma can you dance with me'

so many things to do on the to do list run through my head, so many things to accomplishment.

just a sec. I finish my task at hand. moment delayed, but God's grace grants me this precious gift still...undeserved.

I lifted the beauty up in my arms. We dance.

'just to hear
just to hear you
just to hear your word can make me whole'

she melts in my arms. we dance away.

God you are making her whole. You are redeeming her crushed spirit.

You are redeeming me. I struggle to love this one. She pushes and pushes. I feel weak. I choose love; I choose obedience, I fail over and over. How do I show love to your precious one? How do I show her You are the one who can and will heal the crushed?

This moment love is easy.

I needed this moment.
the facade of summer as the sun shines in through the window, the hope of newness.

I needed a moment to show me the hope. The hope as she melts.

The hope as she pretends to fall asleep. The reminder she feels safe. that's terrifying to her, but You are healing that.

we sit with her head burrowed in my neck, we rock. two more songs play away.

'and I can't wait for the sun to go down
so I can see the stars
and understand how real you are
even from so far'

'I will never be the same again
I will never be the same'

You knew. You knew I needed this moment today.

thank you
