Scarcity, Abundance

It has been a time of scarcity and abundance.
scarcity: sickness, fussiness (mine or my childrens', I don't know) impatience, weakness, questioning the merit, the purpose of this whole motherhood thing

and, thank God, abundance: a prayerful husband who is my foundation, clear and wise voices, a new day, a stronger commitment than ever to living the Gospel in this family of mine, and endless forgiveness

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit (Galatians 5:22,23,25)
