Just Write {24}

February 28, 2012

It was a hard afternoon. Sometimes I’m just struck with the heaviest feeling, my whole body going kind of weak and I’m just done. I was sitting on the bed with Asher standing next to me. He was looking up at the wall at a vintage print we have of a boy going fishing. I was sitting hunched and staring at him, taking him in and I said, Asher, I love you.

He didn’t seem to hear me because he looked right at me suddenly and very seriously said, How come you can’t see God?

That’s a good question, honey.

Mommy. Lift your head up. Look up. And ask Him.

So I did, kind of awkwardly, God, why can’t I see you? and it kind of made me want to cry.

I told Asher that I think I can’t see God because He’s a mystery, a good mystery and that what we find out about Him is always about love.  

He bounced up and down then. He said, Yeah! He’s a mystery! A good one…He bounced right out of the room saying, And He blends into everything! 

Everything. Even blending into the going through the motions until the heavy passes.
