Behind the scene

Things look peaceful

Behind the scene is chaotic at best...
It's five people's schedules and
one very busy car taking
five people from their comings and goings.
I like the comings {home} part best.
Behind the scene it is at times frustrating.
It is forever forgiving...
Behind the scene there is laughing, arguing,
 hugging, talking, listening.
All the things I thought I would never say,
have been said.
Some of the things I thought they would never do,
have been done.
There are good memories,
bad memories.
There is no instruction guide,
no manual of any sort.
There is, however,
a firm foundation in Christ,
a lot of love,
a lot of forgiveness,
a lot of paitence.
Sometimes not enough.
There are grateful tears, sad tears.
It's school books and homework.
It is days of soccer, wrestling, theatre and guns.
It's 4 wheelers, hiking
and haircuts and fun.
It's Worship from home and chicken pox all over.
Lately it is exhausting, exciting, stressful, and frightning.
Praying with a grateful heart
for more days behind this scene.
What is life like for you lately?
