Easy




"Jesus," Janie says. I squinch my eyes shut. "Help us to make it easy for you to show your glory in us. And help us to love you more everyday. Amen."

"Amen." I sigh. I open my eyes. Two sentences. Yeah, me too, God. Help me to make it easy. Amen.

Yes! Amen...my young "rambumctious never quiet know where her heart is" daughter prayed simply that we would know Him.

Yes, love, the cry of my heart.

To know Him.
To reflect His glory.
