A while back I finally started feeling better after a couple of weeks of weakness and fatigue. At the same time, we had beautiful weather, so I got out in the garden and pulled the overabundant mint that was attempting to take over everything. The next day I got out in the flower garden which was sprouting lots of little trees and took care of business!
One side of the flower garden was also getting swallowed up by a vine that was encroaching way too fast on the surrounding flowers. I know I said I love green, but I don’t like the green bullies that overpower the rest of the plant world. They have their place, I’m sure, but it’s not in my garden. (Not to mention that I don’t care for other types of bullying in the animal and human kingdom, either.)
It was so good to be able to get so much done after not having the energy to do much for an extended period of time.
Since then, I’ve cleaned a large portion of the laundry area of the basement, traveled to take my son back to college, started homeschooling my daughter for her senior year, and taken care of some medical issues that had been put on hold. I’m now trying to catch up on blogging, too.
Today I’m thankful for energy to get things done.
I’m thankful that I feel better.
I’m thankful for better days that have come.
And I’m thankful that God understands my weakness and loves me just as much in my weakness as in my strength. Any strength I have is a gift from His hand!
What about you? Are you thankful for energy to get things done? Do you ever feel like there’s just too much to do and not enough time or energy to do it? What kind of things get pushed off to the side when you are too busy or fatigued? Are you thankful for the gift of strength that God has given you you?
