I am finding that I am in need of some "leaning hard" into Him, lately.
I am not one who normally finds herself "all stressed out." But I find that stress keeps trying to make its way into my life.
I have a friend with an ongoing illness.
I have an adult child who is not walking with the Lord...and is living here at home.
We have two family weddings this year.
We have an uncle near the end of his life.
I run a homeschool co-op. This is a busy time for me with memberships, our website, policy changes. With nearly 60 members there are alot of personalities to interact with!
My darling has gone back to work and he is finding it hard to get everything done. Therapy, exercise, maintaining our mower, trying to get the horse shed/barn started- these are some of the stresses in his life...besides being a dad and husband, trying to have family worship every evening...he is so tired. My work as his helpmeet is a delight to me - except when I can't physically help him. I just make sure he has good things to eat, coffee with sweetened condensed milk - just the way he likes it - I pray for him, too. But I am a fixer and want to solve all the problems!
We have a bbq for our oldest son's birthday this Sunday - Rachel's birthday is next Sunday....
I am finding a need to continue to cling to the Lord and let Him carry me through. Lest you think, these items are a burden to me - they are not. I am delighted to encourage and pray for my friend. I am praying for my son and am glad to be in the position of being light in the darkness. It is a privilege to pray for our Uncle's family and for him. The families in our co-op are great! I am so pleased to serve them in this way. I adore being my husbands helpmeet!
Thanks for listening....and if you think about it, please pray for me. This is just normal life...I guess it was just on my heart this morning and decided to open up and be real.
