Happy Friday... I'm linking up with The Gypsy Mama, which makes it even more of a happy one. Writing without thinking twice, breathing light, joining with other friends. Lovely. Hope your day is great, all. Thanks for stopping by. If you can, take a peak at what others are up to as they talk about the word for today..Together.
I wish there was an easy joke with a nice punchline for all the things that seem to go wrong in a body. Even for a girl who can come up with a thousand sunny days in the forecast to trump that one rainy day, it still doesn't quite make sense when your body feels like it fails you or what needs to fit together just doesn't. This has been a battle of mine for years. But the more I told myself 'I'll keep looking for the bright pretty roses in the bush no matter if I get stabbed by pointy things,' the more I felt like I kept getting stabbed by pointy things. Maybe that is the punchline. There's a thorn in there somewhere for all of us folks. They go together.
The sun and the rain. The rose and the thorn.
We have known this for awhile.
Paul talked the thorn in his flesh..
Yet, it still is difficult on some days. But the less I try to fight life, gunk, and pain on my own, the more it feels like anything good I'm able to do is Christ's power that rests on me. (2Corinthians 12:9)
This was more than 5 minutes. I needed it today.
My prayer is wherever you are, whatever feels like it fits or doesn't fit together for you right now, that you would let His grace be sufficient, especially what seems like a weakness.
