As I think back on these 2 years, I know I am blessed. I become overwhelmed when I think of the love that I have for this family. I seriously would do anything for them. They serve well, sacrifice much, and they love big. Many different faces keep popping into my head as I write this post, and I think of the impact they have had on my journey.
They have taught me what it means to sit with those dark parts of my heart without guilt or shame. I have seen the pain my words have caused to those I love the most, but they have called me out in grace and taught me to be more sensitive and aware. I have been given the chance to be incredibly vulnerable and transparent without fear of judgement. They are teaching me that I am loved not because of what I do, but simply because I am.
I pray that I get to continue to do life with them for years to come. I pray that we go deeper into what Christ has called us to in regards to: our identity, family, sacrifice, and mission. I am excited to see what my role will continue to be in this community. May I bless them the way they have blessed me.
