“The soul, for me, is in everything in life. It is in all the beauty as well as in all the agony.” — Marion Woodman
The other day, we celebrated.
We gathered about 30 people together at a house across town and held a recital for these two girls that I’ve been giving guitar and vocal lessons to for a while now.
These girls bring me such joy, and between each song that they performed I was able to tell stories of our time together, the ways we laugh and share our love for music and worship.
At the end of the afternoon, the girls gave me pink roses and a bracelet and candle.
The bracelet from Rachel and Avery is a black band with a little silver charm that says JOURNEY, BLESSING, GRACE.
Is there anything else I could have asked for from these dear friends?
All of life is all of these things, in my opinion.
We journey in blessing, we breathe in grace.
My life has been blessing, my journey has been so covered in grace.
In the agony, in the peace, in the rest and in the exhaustion– the journey never stops, the grace never runs out, the blessing never lets go.
Hallelujah for that.
