After a sleepless night, I’m curled under my favorite blanket watching a cloudy gray sky. I’m dealing with some nagging pain following a procedure yesterday, and it’s got me feeling down. Well, maybe just sorry for myself. There were other things I wanted to do with my day today. Thinking how to be grateful anyway… there are so many with larger struggles than I. I can lie here and save my energy for my little people who will come bounding in from the bus and find me with love to share. That’s where the gift is found; in strength that’s beyond my own, and that’s meant to be given away. Tell me, where are you loving beyond your strength today?
Please leave me a comment, it lets me know you’re listening!

Living with chronic illness is hard some days. For me, it is thinking about my students and my ministry that keeps me going.
So very true… having someone or something else to focus on is such good motivation to keep putting the next foot forward. Blessings to your day!
