The Same, But Different

Our lives are completely different, and yet so much the same during this time! We are still driven by the daily rhythms of a toddler and baby, and still find ourselves actively reaching college students with the message of Jesus. Except, instead of library outings and playground adventures, we are getting creative in our backyard and taking lots of walks. And instead of small group gatherings on campus, and sending out our graduating seniors to the “real world,” we find ourselves holding discipleship and prayer meetings over Zoom. It’s the same, and yet, it isn’t. Many days feel like a long monotonous repeat of the day before and often by the time we say goodnight to our littles, we’re completely spent. However, there have also been some sweet glimpses of grace for us in this time: eating virtually every meal together as a family, even if it’s takeout (again), checking in on more neighbors from opposite sides of the street, and a refocusing that’s come from lots of distractions being stripped away. We miss our people, we miss our church, and John-Mark misses the gym – but we know that this, too, shall pass. One day at a time.
