This is going to be a quick blog entry, just because it’s way past due and I apologize for that. It’s been the most stressful and overwhelming three months of my life. There has been so much going on at once. It feels like my day has not been recovered since my son got his tonsils removed. Since then I have not been able to pick myself up. I don’t do well under pressure. It’s easier for me to just throw the towel but, that’s not what adults do right? I am quite behind with a number of things. (Sorry babe for not picking up the house, sorry blog team for not turning in my previous blog and this one for being super late, and sorry to my young adult group for not being on top of my responsibilities).
I’ve contemplated many times these past three months if I should take a break from blogging and I won’t attempt to fool you or myself by promising my regular entries from here on out.
What I can promise is that I will continue to pray for you. I might be forgetting a thousand things but I don’t forget to pray for you. For my family and for those who I’ve never met face to face.
Can I ask for your prayers? I could really use it. Due to a strange mix of circumstances that I will share with you later down the road, I’ve been feeling rather low and overwhelmed. Good thing I have good days and it helps me balance some of my emotions.
I’m no stranger to depression as my family and I have dealt with it for a good chunk of our lives from childhood trauma and such.
But to balance things and what I know to be true is that my faith in God continues to be the most precious gift and during this time I recline my whole to him. For I know He is my strength and He walks with me every day, through the good and bad. I thank you for your prayers. I truly do. They mean more to me than I could express.
Alright now, I’m going to submit my entry 3 minutes before it’s supposed to go up.
Also, you are not alone.
From a very sleepless sister in Christ,
May the strength of God pilot us,
May the wisdom of God instruct us,
May the hand of God protect us,
May the word of God direct us,
Be always ours this day and for evermore.
// Saint Patrick
