This picture was taken nearly one year ago by Anne Savage. She came to help me with the kids while Patrick was away at training. It was taken on a hike above our home. I love how the kids are looking out beyond the valley, as if they didn’t know what their school year would hold.
It held a lot.
A lot of tears. A lot of victories. A lot of perseverance.
Patrick and I are so proud of our three children. They endured a difficult year with joy and amazing resilience. Today is the last day of school (finally!). And I am left with the fact that God is good. He sees. He takes care of His little ones (and bigger ones, like me–a mother who came to France with a suitcase full of mom-worries).
Thank you, Jesus, for bringing us all through this school year. We couldn’t have done it without You.
