One Thousand Gifts and my daughters

"That which tears open our souls, those holes that splatter our sight, may actually become the thin, open places to see through the mess of this place to the heart-aching beauty beyond. To Him. To the God whom we endlessly crave."
I'm so excited to listen to this book on audible with my two oldest girls. I've listened to  just a few chapters but, WOW, what a blessing Ann's beautifully poetic and heart stirring words are already to me. Love being able to share this with Karis and Kimmi. Love that God provides Godly women, like Ann, to guide me towards a deeper walk with Jesus and also to help me guide my older girls too!!

If these two of  mine can grasp this at their young age that pain is used by God to help us see Him!! That pain, tragedy, disappointment and sadness is part of God's plan to fill up our "soul holes"!! ------Well, that would be a beautiful foundation for these two young women of mine. It really would be everything. Pain is not something I will ever seek, but I'm praying that I and my daughters can receive all the gifts that He has for us and be grateful for it all!!
Here's my pretty girlies!!
