I have been on-site with a client for a week (hence the radio silence). Now I am back home. Compared to hotel life in the city, home has its annoyances and limitations (people talk to me; I have to wash up or cook or both). On the other hand I notice how much more relaxed I am here. Profoundly relaxed. And all the stress and exhaustion — and excitement — of the last week can unravel.

This refuge is a blessing, a mixed blessing, like many are, and a blessing that is difficult to rejoice in, but a blessing and a gift nonetheless.

In the roughness I see the opportunities to make smooth, to make the home stronger and more loving. Every failure is a reminder of Christ’s passion, and every success is a rainbow.
