Seeing The Wonder

I walk onto the field. 
It's the first home game. 
The first time I have walked onto this field since Elijah played. 
My friend is with me. 
She who has walked with me and supported me. 
Surprisingly, a sense of peace washes over me. 
I was blessed. 

I loved watching his team play. 

I think back to the day Caleb brought those sticks to the house. 
I didn't even know what the sport was. 
The kids loved it. 
Lacrosse became their game.
 I smile remembering. 
I look around. 
If I don't embrace the holiness of this moment and see the wonder
 I will miss the gifts God's is longing to send. 

Isaiah 30:18
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; 
therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. 
For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!

I allow myself to remember. 
Slowly. There is an ache, with a sense of peace; with longing. 
I look at my friend. 
She knows. 
Each one so precious. 
I stand up straight and watch as Cedric's team gets ready. 
I glance around. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
