Where I See God
Journal #21: In the Details
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13 NIV
My son’s wedding is two months away. I find myself lost in a bunch of tiny details. Attempted etiquette on rehearsal dinner invitations, what dress to wear, flowers and candles for the tables or just flowers. The list goes on.
I’ve been working on one project that has proven quite therapeutic for me. I love working with my hands, so I’ve been designing a collage of picture frames with childhood photos of the bride and groom for the rehearsal dinner. I found most of the frames at a second hand shop and am spray painting them to the colors of the wedding (thankfully, gold is one of the colors!)
Reminiscing though the photos has brought back memories of so many moments I had forgotten about motherhood. Wet with sweat little boy hugs, his love for playing outside, and him dressed as Buzz Lightyear for his three year old Halloween, to name a few. Memories that highlighted details from our family life here at Thorntonville. I’ve cried and laughed and cried again remembering this amazing journey God has allowed me to have with my son.
Details. God is in every detail. He was in the creation of my son as a baby, as a boy and now as a man. God was also with me as a clueless new mom of one, a not as clueless mom of two and has guided me through adolescence into their early adulthood years.
It is an amazing ride I am on. The good, the bad, the clueless and the not so clueless moments add together detail after detail to create this incredible journey. Life.
