Last month, I shared a post about consolation and desolation. My intent is to use my blog once a month to offer a space for everyone to share their highlight and lowlight of the past month: the time when life was most fulfilling and the time when life was the most draining.
We need to share our triumphs and defeats more often.
Both are realities of life. Neither are permanent. Both are better shared in community.
This past month, my highlight was standing up front at church as my children offered the communion thought. My younger son read the Scripture, my daughter delivered her thoughts about what do, and my older son led the prayer. It was such a blessing standing all together and sharing that moment.
My lowlight is that feeling of helplessness I get when my friends are struggling in ways I cannot fix. I have had too many conversations these past few weeks with people who are facing life-altering situations and all I can do is listen. I am grateful for the opportunity to listen. I am grateful for the trust they show in talking to me. I just wish I had more to offer.
Now it is your turn. What is your highlight and lowlight of the past month? Please share. You can post in the comments here or on my facebook or twitter page. I appreciate all of you for reading and participating!
