Brand and Sera are already awake and downstairs enjoying a quiet breakfast together.  It’s the way they like to start their morning.  Together, before heading off to their respective careers.

When Sera heads off to check on the boys, Brand is joined by Caleb and Shauna.  Seems like making her pancakes was just what she needed to stop being so sad about the monster.

Runaways Legacy History - a synopsis in one post

I’ve spent most of my life and most of my friendships holding my breath and hoping that when people get close enough they won’t leave, and fearing that it’s a matter of time before they figure me out and go.

I believe that suffering is part of the narrative, and that nothing really good gets built when everything’s easy. I believe that loss and emptiness and confusion often give way to new fullness and wisdom.

As those words began to take root in me, as I read and reread them, as I prayed and listened, I felt my tangled spirit begin to untangle. I felt my breath slow and deepen. I felt a part of the natural world, governed by a good God, created with care and attentive-ness. I felt my daughter-ness, my place in the family of God. And I exhaled.

I want to cultivate a deep sense of gratitude, of groundedness, of enough, even while I’m longing for something more. I’m practicing believing that God knows more than I know, that he sees what I can’t, that he’s weaving a future I can’t even imagine from where I sit this morning.
