My dearest friend texted me this photo recently. I was complaining about being tired. Again. I suppose this photo struck a chord with me because it doesn’t seem to matter if I get 10 hours of sleep or zero hours of sleep, I am just plain tired. Weary might be a better description. No amount of sleep will cure the weary soul. And I’m not going
As I was reading my devotional, Trust Without Borders, I was deeply struck by a phrase that it caused me to dig a little deeper into the thought. Don’t you love it when God’s word jumps out at you like that and brings about more study? I know it doesn’t always happen that way, and I also know that sometimes a verse becomes clearer just for

Psalm 105:5 (NIV) In the midst of some trying days last year, this verse came to the forefront. So much so that I pasted it into a document and put it on a board we have in our bedroom so
I feel like last week got away from me, and I didn’t get much posting done at end of week. Between not feeling well and a lot of other things taking up my brain power (things I will hopefully be sharing soon – it’s good news!), blogging just didn’t happen.
