I was dreading Mother’s Day. I was figuring it wouldn’t go at all as I would’ve hoped. I must admit, that despite the 1am phone call from Tuck to wish me happy Mother’s Day, I was still feeling pretty crappy about the day. To say the least, I assumed it would be underwhelming. God, however, is not in the business of being underwhelming!
I received yet another phone call from Tuck, just incase I hadn’t remembered the 1am call. Then much to my surprise, the prodigal son came home!!
My sweet little Olivia picked Tucker up and brought him here. It took some coaxing, because he thought it was a set up. Paranoid much?!
We didn’t kill the fatted calf. Mainly because we couldn’t have gotten Tuck to stay that long. Besides, fatted calves are way overrated. We had apple pie and ice cream, and I couldn’t think of anyone better we could’ve shared it with, or a better ending to my day.
God loves us and cares about every aspect of our lives! Rejoice and don’t be sad! God’s got it! His love is overwhelming!
Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.Isaiah 49:13
