“Lois is my hero!”

My wife is amazing. So many other friends (esp. other moms) have said that Lois is their “hero” for her perseverance during this difficult season of life. Yet what I see as her husband is how much she strives to be faithful to the Lord even when she herself is weary. This has been an unbelievably challenging time for her with 3 young children and entering her last trimester carrying our fourth child. That she offers to open our home to others in hospitality (as she just did a few moments ago) for building them up in Christ is a credit to the grace of God in her. I was reminded today of an old Twila Paris classic which seems to describe my beloved so well:

The Warrior Is A Child

Lately I’ve been winning battles left and right,
But even winners can get wounded in the fight.
People say that I’m amazing, strong beyond my years,
But they don’t see inside of me, I’m hiding all the tears.

Chorus:
They don’t know that I go running home when I fall down.
They don’t know who picks me up when no one is around.
I drop my sword and cry for just a while,
‘Cause deep inside this armor, the warrior is a child.

Unafraid because His armor is the best.
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest.
People say that I’m amazing, never face retreat.
But they don’t see the enemies that lay me at His feet.
(chorus)

I drop my sword and look up for His smile
Because deep inside this armour
Deep inside this armour
Deep inside this armour
The warrior is a child.
