Yesterday I was so tired I could barely hold my head up all day long. I kept holding it up and my hubby kept encouraging me to take a nap. I've done SO MUCH WORK and baking and cooking over the last week that my body had finally taken it's toll. I took about a 30 minute nap on the couch while my sweet husband ordered pizza for dinner. Thankfully we have an "in town" pizza place that's really inexpensive.
Last night I went to bed around 8:30 and prayed that God would wake me up early and He did. I woke up at around 7 a.m. this morning. I got my Bible study time done and time to read a little of a blog. Now, I'm resting a bit as I sit here and plan out our day.
Hannah needs a haircut and I need to pick up the girls' allergy medicine. We have an aweful cough going on around here that everyone has caught. I thought I was getting it last night but instead I was just very weary and tired. I woke up this morning praising the Lord for waking me up before my family and giving me this time. They will all be waking up soon or will be woken up.
I want to encourage you today to not take on more than you can handle and end up weary like I was yesterday but instead to take each day and work hard but unhurried and enjoy all that you are doing. I was enjoying it so much that I started doing too much all at once and just got too worn out. I will be working peacefully and hard in my day today and will be pleased with all I get accomplished. My husband and my girls are loving all that Mommy does each day and that is a true blessing!
Remember why you are working and keep God at the head of all that you do. Keep walking towards the goal and moving forward.
God bless your day!
