thank you and some scattered thoughts on a Sunday morning
As I sit here this morning trying to finalize my lesson for the girls at church my heart just keeps swelling and I keep getting distracted because of a few emails (and blog comments) I received about #LIGHTtheWORLD yesterday. The “theme” was “Jesus helped others to see and so can you” and there were these suggestions:
I just have to thank those who reached out to write a sweet note or to donate to Families Fighting Blindness. The truth is that we are really struggling with this right now, and it meant so much to us. I had a few friends Instagram about Lucy and her light, even as the light her eyes can see with is starting to dwindle more rapidly, the light others pour into her helps her shine. And that means the world to us. Dave and I have decided we better match the donations that came in yesterday as our own contribution to the service initiative so THANK YOU so very much for helping the BBS community.
Today the theme is here:
Watch the short video here:
I am teaching about a Christ-centered home in church today and I feel like this theme goes perfectly with the lesson.

I just watched this video, so now I’m a mess because I love it so much.
How I hope I can help these girls remember (and that I can remember too) that it is in remembering what matters most that we put Christ in the center of our homes. I have so many more thoughts to share on that topic since I have a post half-written about that very thing I spoke about at a Women’s Conference last month.
But for now I’m just leaving these quick thoughts on a Sunday morning… and one more humble thank you for the love people share with Lucy.
