exhaustion

by the end of Saturday night I'll have worked over 44 hours-that included one 12 hour day, where I sat down for a total of 30 min. No kidding.

changes, talk, lies, deception, manipulations, push the product, sell, sell.
I dont' want to continue in that.
I was told this week 'you just dont' listen very well". Sometimes you dont' have to 'listen', you can 'see' the truth or what is really going on. And God gives His children some disernment about things, too, that the 'world' doesn't have access to.

I long for a normal life. I look around-here at home, here on the computer at pictures/posts of things I used to do, church, cooking meals, cleaning house. I hear others talk about their friends, what they've done, etc. I have no time for them now.


Simple things. That's what I long for.

How did I get to the point?

Where do I go from here?

My devotion this morning, as it has been lately, was about God opening/closing doors.

Still holding on to The Promises.

~~til later



later~~

Well, this day has turned out to be a good one. I did have the day off, (not another til next Friday and I have the weekend off!!!)I had planned to run some errands but decided to just stay at home, and rest. I did do some basic housework, ugh, it gets so dirty so quick.
There has been a nice slow steady rain falling all day.

Think it's time for a nap.

As I read your words, I can feel your frustration and exhaustion. Sometimes, we just have to step back and let go and get away from the pull of life. Unplug that phone, let the house be dirty, it will get that way again, after you tire yourself out cleaning it anyhow. It can wait one more day. Right now, you feel like your on a merry- go- round going too fast. So when you have a day off....make it that way...a day...OFF. I pray and hope that things will soon get simple and normal for you again. Hang in there! My prayers are with you. blessings,Kathleen
