Thirty-six hours and the sum of my travels spanned the bed to the bathroom. When the children were sick last week it only took six hours to move through their systems… ugh. You would think that after all of that time in bed – most of it sleeping – that I would feel rested and refreshed. Not so, instead I feel worn out and achy and exhausted.
What my body needs most is rest, but the thought of spending another minute in bed is almost painful.
I remember thinking, last week, about how good a nap would feel and how nice it would be to have a bit more down time where no one expected anything of me. Now I’ve got it and to be healthy and whole sounds a lot better!
I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
It is so easy to look to what could be and think how much better it might be. BUT God has a plan for me right where I am. Making the most of every opportunity I’m given is my responsibility.
I don’t have to do everything, but everything I do, I have to do as well as I am able. Even more important than how well I do something is my attitude while I’m doing it. I think I will have that nap now 🙂
