Not Enough Spoons….

Yep.  Last night was THAT night.  Everything hurt, I couldn’t get comfortable.  I gave up at 10:30 and wandered around the house until after midnight.  I tossed and turned and finally, sometime after 3:00 a.m. drifted off to sleep.  Only to be woken up at 7:00 a.m. to help my brother get Mom up, and so the new day started.

I’m so tired.  But I have to remember that God is my strength.  He has this.  I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.

So, after lunch, I MADE myself take a shower and wash my hair.  I need to make myself drive to town and pick up my prescription and some black fabric for a project I need to finish.  Or not.  A nap is probably in order, or I will collapse right after supper.

Philippians 4:12 and 13 (KJV) “I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

I have great memories of days traipsing through the woods and fishing with my 5 kiddos while they were young.  We homeschooled, so we had wonderful, educational adventures together.  This disease can NOT take my memories away.  I’m learning to make new kinds of memories, and create new adventures.   I’m teaching myself how to knit.  I do water aerobics instead of climb hillsides.  I’m perfecting my sewing skills.  I’m studying the Bible through the Bible Institute sponsored by my church.  I’m learning to pray more fervently, and trust more fully.

Have a Blessed day, and I pray that you have extra spoons today!
