Mama taught me a lot of things, but one of them is a lesson I'm still learning. Maybe not intentionally, but Mama taught me about letting go.
My initiation into serving in an urban elementary school was swift and heartbreaking.
Tossed about by poverty and neglect, Larry's family awaited the arrival of sibling number seven. A mother barely thirty and no baby daddies in sight for any of them, life held few promises.
Annalyn and I were making strawberry jam recently, talking about the important things that an almost teenager and her doting grandparent care about.
In the mix, I told her that God cares about EVERYTHING we care about, no matter how small. The very next day, He made sure I was keeping that lesson up close and personal.
