Chapter 6 Sometimes It Takes An Altar
No one ever said it was going to be easy. Mothering is exhausting but also rewarding. Seeing the fruits of your labor makes any mother's heart sing. What always got me was when I would hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time. That was when thoughts like "this is really happening" or "this is for real" came flooding into my mind. Then excitement and planning etc. etc. "OVERDRIVE" I'm sure it happened to most of you too. I have always known God but I never have been a very spiritual person. To me, my relationship with God was a private thing. I didn't really want to talk about it. That was difficult for me. It was until I had my son that I grew closer to Him. That was what my son's "issues" have done. When I was at my wits end trying to help my child I went to Him. My altar is my bedroom. Sometimes I didn't want to face it anymore but I didn't walk away completely. I just needed a break and to refocus and then I was okay for awhile until the next time. No matter how weary I felt I could never leave my children. Have you ever just wanted to walk away?
"Altar's don't necessarily have to be in front of the church they can be kitchen tables or behind bathroom doors. Do you need to spend some time today bowed low with the Grace Giver?Do you need to lay down the weariness you have been wearing? He wants to meet you. He wants to whisper into your heart. He loves you and will never let you go. I promise your weary heart will sing once more with hope."
And beleive it is true.
