joy’s… ups… and downs…

A time of celebration… filled with… ups… and… downs…
the travel out of town… three hotels… in three nights…
(really four… with some complications…)
ceremonies… hours long… weary legs… and patience tried…

But at the heart… a graduation completed… a degree bestowed…
Joy… for a mom… and dad… plus the brothers…

Each high… seems to be followed by a low…

The oldest… education complete… makes a mom realize… just how much she’s grown… and is really about to make it on her own… a moment of joy… and an odd sense of loss…

And through it all… ups… downs… high… lows… joy… loss… I see His faithfulness… and mercy…

Lots of hours… of travel… fun… frustration… and close quarters… make those of us wrapped in flesh… struggle… even in the times of joy…

But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
Psalm 86:15
You Lord… are the One who holds us all together…
