Living in the tension…

I feel like I am learning to live in the tension of life lately…

Feeling a deep ache in my heart and at the same time experiencing joy….

Wanting to live with healthy boundaries and give myself generously to others…

Craving time alone and longing to live in community….

Loving comfortable living and wanting to live impacted by experiences I have had in Romania, Haiti, the Dominican and many other places…

Wanting to be at peace with who God has created me to be and committed to becoming the best “me” I can be…..

And so today I took time to reflect on these reminders of Good Friday knowing that Easter is coming….

Each hangs in my house and yet today, I put them together and again felt the tension….

The tension of  knowing the depth of my sin and the gratitude for Christ’s gift of full forgiveness….

deeply grateful

And yet in that tension, I find myself deeply grateful!
