Back From The Dead

I feel as though I am back from the dead, after fighting for several days with a nasty bug. Yesterday was spent almost entirely in bed. The past two days have involved a lot of sleep, vitamins, pain relievers and decongestants. I am happy to report that I am in 'recovery mode' and expect to be back to normal by tomorrow. Thank God.

Work has been tremendously stressful lately, as each day seems to reveal more uncharted territory to explore. There is a good side to this for me, as it compels me to remember my limitations and rely on God for peace and stability more than I might when things are "going well." It is also a great opportunity to learn new things. I enjoy taking on new responsibilities-- I only wish  had more time to learn them without feeling pressured by time constraints. I am grateful to have the job, especially in times like these. I never have bought into the hype of a 'recovering economy,' not when I know there are so many in need. To consider a part time, low paid employee to be the same status as a full time, highly paid person is dishonest and gives a false sense of security to the uninformed American. It is my hope and prayer that this country can return to some sane, conservative values before it is too late. The only place to begin is GOD.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. -2 Chronicles 7:14
