Today is a bathing suit sort of day for Heidi. She has dug out her favorite suits and is changing and changing and changing. So lighthearted and carefree. Why is it so hard for me to live like her?
I had a friend call me on Sunday and say, "Every time I think of you lately I hear two words 'make dinner'. I feel like the Lord is telling me to make you dinner this week. May I?" Even now it makes me cry. For different reasons. Sometimes it feels so nice to know He loves me enough to speak to a friend and tell them I am weary. It also is amazing to have friends that are obedient to His voice. It is very humbling to be on the receiving end of peoples love. Fact is, having someone bring me dinner tonight is a beautiful act of service!! I have been having some health challenges lately (won't bore you with the details) but the medicine I am on makes me operate with pretty significant fatigue. What normally isn't a big deal feels like an ordeal now. Having to pace myself so I am not completely run down is frustrating. It is teaching me how much I need people which is something He has been trying to teach me for a long time now. Something as simple as not having to make dinner frees up some time for me to dig into some other neglected things around my home. So grateful today for friends who genuinely love and love well!!
Now I am off to find my free spirited child and see where she may be "swimming." Thanks to you who continue reading my ramblings even though they are way more sporadic than I would like. Someday......
