Head Above Water

Another continuation of the past 3 weeks of blahs for me. I have been consistently staying in pjs until the afternoon, or even all day. It's almost like I don't feel there's a purpose in anything. At least it's not as if I don't want to go on with life. I haven't been near that point this time around.

I am asking that you would pray for me. That I would begin to feel better. That I can begin doing normal things a person should be able to do. Also, that I would not be anxious about ANYTHING? Thank you so much!

Good news for Tim though! His specialist reported (in writing) that he is doing even better than he would have hoped at this point! Praise the Lord!

It's so nice to know Tim is back in a workshop (a God thing happened, where someone offered the use of his heated workshop for Tim to use at no charge). Since then, he has completed a beautiful hope chest for Candle. This is his first wood project in over 2 years.

The biggest concern the Dr. has for Tim to continue being stable is that I become stable. If my mental health does not improve, it could trigger Tim into relapse, which is not a good thing.

I am able to say that I believe things will get better! I am also thankful that I've been having daily Bible readings again for over 2 months now. That's not saying I'm retaining much, but it's a big deal for me. Concentration has not been my strong-suit for quite a while.

Oh yeah, Tim and I prepared dinners, following the Once-A-Month Cooking, back at the end of January. It was really a hard few days of work to get it all done, but we are still enjoying the blessing of those meals, as many provided enough for leftovers. We also were able to have enough for some company (which usually causes major anxiety for me)... and I think there's 3 or 4 more meals left... so how's that for a few days worth of cooking?

Laurel-Thanks so much!

Martine-I don't think anyone can outrun struggles. Thank you for the Word you shared with me. Will try to call... having a hard time doing that, so if I take too long, you can call me. We're in the book.

I'll keep praying for you Dawn. It isn't fun when you don't feel like you can function. God is with us in everything.

May the Lord bless you and keep you, may the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you His precious peace. Numbers 24-26
