My thought today is to encourage someone. Someone in your family, a friend, neighbor, at church, at work, anywhere that someone needs a lift.
Maybe I am encouraging myself this morning. Jim has one good day and the next, not so good. He was in bed all day yesterday, was sick to his stomach, and white as a sheet. He said he just 'didn't feel good'. Needless to say, I stuck close by and listened for his call or even movement. He got up around 5 pm for about an hour, then went back to bed. He is still asleep as I type.
I do trust the Lord and His timing is perfect, but I have to constantly remind myself of that daily.
I know I tell you how Jim is almost every day, but today, it is me. I am afraid, lonely, tired, and pray for strength to take care of him, but take care of me too.
Sorry, this is a downer, I know. That is where I am, no matter how hard I try.
(I am 'preaching to the choir' as an old saying goes!)
