On Fear, Sonship, and Love

Romans 8

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Prayers for the People, 46.

46. For the Care of Children

Almighty God, heavenly Father, you have blessed us with the
joy and care of children: Give us calm strength and patient
wisdom as we bring them up, that we may teach them to love
whatever is just and true and good, following the example of
our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Tiny House link

This is a fun site for streamlined and eco designs for tiny houses. I love the VIPP shelter.

Short Profile In Persistence

I enjoyed this brief video of a dad describing his work with his severely disabled and autistic son, Chris.

Watching this man work with his son, watching his son respond inspires me -- to be faithful, patient, firm and quiet.

He gives me a glimpse of how we are meant to be today: made in the image of God, having dignity, each bearing the scars that the fall brought upon the earth, but loving unconditionally, sanctified by the daily, mundane, unseen, and unsung acts of ministry.

He also describes, in a word, the mother. We know her story after just a few words. The daily, roll-up-your sleeves, tear-stained, jaw set, mind-running, researching, problem-solving, holy and beautiful and beloved work that is the special real-estate of motherhood.
