Sick Day

Woke up this morning with a mega headache, which made my stomach ache. Took the day off and slept most of the day away.

What i would like is to be able to spend a day or two by myself in my house while I am feeling well. So much to do, but when one is sick, who cares if anything gets done?

Anyway.

Feeling better this evening. Just drained of energy. Hoping tomorrow will be a “well” day.

Real Life

“The great thing, if one can, is to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one’s ‘own’, or ‘real’ life. The truth is of course that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one’s real life–the life God is sending one day by day: what one calls one’s ‘real life’ is a phantom of one’s own imagination.” -C. S. Lewis, 1943

The Comfort of God

“The problem with God isn’t that He has been tried and found wanting, it is that He has been wanting to be tried.  People who could find all of the peace, solace and strength they could ever need and more hit bottom because they refuse to ask God for the help He willingly and lovingly

The Weight of Tearlessness

I have read a couple of great blog posts from friends the last couple of days. Both spoke about the need to face our struggles and rely on God to help us. One friend jokingly said, “If only there were calories in tears.” I responded to her, “Tears take a different sort of weight off.”
