Settle Down Sister

I just came thru a dark and lonely spell. You know, those one’s I get, when I try too hard and run too fast and hit that hard brick wall. Yup.

I slept for the better parts of three days, prayed alot, thought a lot and generally just let my body rest till it did not want to rest anymore. I tended my little flower garden out front, and tidied up in here when I was able.

I had not let myself just relax into my new home, till this past week. It had just been running in circles full speed ever since moving in and the hurricane and then the illness etc etc. The whirlwind .

Well, by prayer and meditation and some simple common sense steps like BREATHING, I have been able to step off the merry go round.

Thank You Jehovah. I had forgotten to be grateful to You. I am, you know, Lord. I am so very grateful. Thank you for your son, Christ Jesus, and the provisions you made for forgiveness of my sins. Your undeserved kindness has allowed me to become teachable and human again. Has enabled me to truly love You, and to Love all your creation, even my fellow man. Thank you Jehovah. In Jesus name, Amen.
