Last night my son wanted to come home to pick up some of his things. So, we allowed him to have dinner, shower, pick up some more of his clothing and then go home.
It was ok. It felt right for him to go home....to his own home. And, when he came into the kitchen to catch me alone to tell me that he was 10 days sober, I was shocked that I didn't need to know. I was shocked that I didn't instantly have a mind racing with ideas for how he might maintain this new found sobriety.
Thanks be to good for His marvelous grace, my son's growth, this lovely weather and the progress my family both individually and collectively have made. I pray for continued direction in what He would have me to do so that I might do the work of His service. I pray for healing in all of our loved ones and I say a prayer, as always for you, Henry.
