"Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved." ... Palm 55:22
So yesterday I repainted my dresser a pale yellow then recuperated the rest of the day because I'm not the spring chicken I once was.
Today I wallpapered that tiny wall and will probably need to take the rest of the week off.
Wow. In my olden times, I could have done both in one day and then mowed the lawn, vacuumed, ran errands and dug a flower bed.
Those days are so gone. And honestly? I am still accepting the fact that aging brings changes. Sometimes I kick against it in my emotions, but the kicking comes less and less now. Even my emotions tire more easily. (Which, actually, can be a good thing.)
Remember, I'm the one who took one full year to accept that she'd turned 50. Today upon the couch after all the wallpapering, I wondered how in the world I could be 55. High School seems only months ago.
I'm also the crazy lady who sleeps in her closet. :)
Without God, I have a feeling I couldn't do a darn thing now at my age. But then, I'd rather be dependent upon Him than be well-known for having accomplished a zillions things without Him.
" Because God knows how we’re made,
He remembers we’re just dust." ... Psalm 103:14
"But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me." ... 2 Corinthians 12:9
Please keep Tom's mom in prayer. She's been moved to comfort care (rather like hospice). I believe she's 85 and honestly? She's wanted to go home to be with God for some years now, even spoke of it when we visited by train in 2010 and again when Tom visited in October.
May God's will be done...
