Esther's Thin Place story, God in School, brought tears to my eyes, not because of the bad stuff Esther experienced, but because God spoke to her. It reminded me to pray that the Holy Spirit will minister to my children when & where I can't. I'll do my best to parent, but I'll fall short. Thankfully, God can fill in the gaps.
(Thin Place Thursday at MaryDeMuth.com features reader submitted stories about God meeting them in a thin place, a place where heaven and earth meet. It's the theme of Mary's memoir, one of my favorite books. Because I like the book and helping others share their stories, I help get the stories online.)
