I prayed for my spiritual armor today.
It was a joke, God. I didn't really mean that I wanted to go into battle!!
But the battlefield is exactly where I am standing right now.
Without going into much detail yet, the Anderson's have had a hard 24 hours. A lot to handle in a short span of time. Yesterday, I told Erik to bring me home and I ate a lot of ice cream.
Some adoption stuff, some life stuff, some "car stolen in the middle of the night" stuff.
But between those heavy double breath cries and some spoonfuls of sugar, I was reminded of a friend's blog way back from last year. And a quote that she posted that made me smile at the time.
I may not be smiling today, but I'm battle crying.
And as ugly as it may be, I am finding more strength than I could ever imagine to fight in a battle that I prayed to be prepared for.
