joy.

We put her on speaker phone, both of us anxious to hear how her first visit to a new church went.  We had been thrilled when she mentioned she was going, and that she was even going to try out the choir.  And so when we asked her how it went?  Her voice spoke joy.  It made our day, really, to hear that joy and picture her smiling face.  She shared that she stayed for both services, and after the second there was a college lunch {they even packed up left-overs for the students!}   And more than all of that, she has been back.   It seems she has found a place where her heart, and voice, can sing...


Again, I marvel at her courage and willingness to step out in faith... arranging rides with choir members and meeting new people.  And I thank God for His showing of just how much she has grown since May...

I'm so glad I get to journey this life phase with you...it makes me less anxious when in two years it will be my oldest stepping out in faith!
