"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

crisis



I am so tired.  So tired.  You know the kind of tired I mean.  The kind that just slowly settles on you and completely takes control.  One minute you think you have mastered the circumstance.  The next you realize that it is you that has been conquered.  So, today I will try and find myself again.  Because I don't like this person who has taken up temporary residence...  She is just too tired...

Blessings, Debbie

    I'm sad to hear of your "tiredness". I DON'T know all the contributing factors in your situation, but I've been tired before...and it's not a good way to be. If you need help, don't be too proud to ask for it from someone who loves you. Please.

  2. Oh sweet friend I will lift you in prayer. I know the feeling well and finally this year I am feeling new energy and hope. I am not sure if you are feeling tired b/c of life or physical reasons but either way I know how you feel. I highly recommend the Maker's Diet and you might look at my post about Adrenal Glad Fatigue. Sense I have been changing things I feel sooooooo much better. Sending you a HUGE cyber ((HUG))!

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

  3. This is for anyone who lovingly comments...

    I have been dealing with some things that physically sap me, yet God is good and I've been doing well. I will post tomorrow about our lovely 4th celebration. It was just a very busy week for someone who is already running on less than what it takes. I really did enjoy myself and think all was fine until I finally let down my guard. Yesterday I just kind of crashed.

    Thank you to all who have already offered scripture and prayer. Thank you to those who I know will... You really are good friends and I cherish your sweet encouragement.

    Hugs back, Debbie

  5. Oh Debbie, you are in my thoughts and prayers! This getting older stuff is hard isn't it? My mind thinks it's still twenty while the rest of me knows better! Get some rest my friend.xx

  6. I so know your feeling. Sometimes I just get to the end of my rope and need solitude. So, with this, I pray God will renew your strength, give you rest, and give you all you need to carry one. I pray peace over your heart and body.

  7. I had many days like that.....they ended about a year ago....after I had some physical issues taken care of. It has a lot to do with our age....well....I am assuming we fall into the same age group anyway. :) (47)

  8. I hope you can get some rest. I get that way too and then I pull back and open my book of love letters and He restores my soul. I hope you can get refreshed. I will be praying for you my friend.

  9. Physical rest makes such a difference in my life. Often I need to remind myself that I'm not a machine and that rest is crucial to my well being, and in turn, to those who need me.
    May God's Word refresh your spirit and may your enthusiasm return. Blessings from Denise.

  14. Debbie, I suffer from chronic fatigue. I had a rough winter, but then slowly I started to feel like my old self. I just pray and try not to push myself too hard. But you have your family, I am by myself, so a little easier for me, I guess. I do believe our Lord meant for us to take things liesurely at times. xo,

  15. I hope you are taking time to rest. To quote the great philosopher Winnie the Pooh (!) "Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day." Sending a huge hug!

  16. Perhaps you are too busy or you are in need of a good night's sleep. I declare it a "Take care of you" day...whatever that means for you. Take some time just for you. (It may mean a delicious nap.)

  17. Take care Debbie! I am thinking of you today and sending you positive energy.~ Karen

  18. We all get like that..this is earth life, a time to be tested, tried and proven. It gets tough at times but I know that trough prayer, our burdens can be lightened...sending you 12 big hugs..that will fix you! ;D

  19. It makes me sad to here of your tiredness. You are in my thoughts and I will say a prayer for your burdens to lift and for life to become blessedly ordinary for you. I wish I could find the words to help you. Sometimes when it rain, it pours? Maybe just rest and relax... “Knit On, with confidence and hope, through all crises.” I hope you are able to overcome the obstacles in your path. Again, you will be in my thoughts!

  20. 'tiredness' meaning ( it's time to cut back - slow it down -- go on a easy careless no hurry walks that allow you to just see and feel the beauty around - sing songs - can you do that alone.. it works for me! God bless you.. hugs

  22. Oh, I hope someone rubs your back and pats your shoulder and whispers, "It's okay."

  23. Oh Debbie, I know exactly the kind you are talking about so yes dear, do take some time to yourself and just sleep and rest and hibernate and just be....It's okay, becuase we all do it and we all need it.

  25. Dear Debbie,

    I hope you feel better soon, dear lady! Rest as much as you can, and know that "a bad day for the ego is a good day for the soul." If we didn't know what tired feels like, we wouldn't appreciate what having energy feels like!

    Love,

    Marqueta

    p.s. Oh yes, I get to sneak peeks at all the goodies coming in at the thrift store. It's like someone with food addictions working at a bakery. . .Get behind me, Satan! :)

    p.p.s. The word verification is "reste"!

  26. I pray that you will find rest Debbie. Sometimes life just hits you like that. Then one day you wake up and everything is fine and your energized even though nothing else has changed.

  27. Debbie, your body is telling you to 'pull over' take a break and say no occasionally. You don't have to come to a standstill...just a long pause or a slow down. You have been so busy and even when I read your posts I sometimes wonder where you get the energy from. A little well earned holiday perhaps.
    Take care girlfriend you are in my thoughts. Hugs Maa.

  28. Dear Debbie, sometimes I push myself too hard trying to do it all so no one goes wanting of anything. And then I get run down. I get up early and go to bed late. Not a good recipe to rest a tired body.

    I hope that you can get some much needed rest, comfort and peace.

  36. Big BIG hugs to you. I do know that kind of tired--so tired that it feels dangerous. Keep sleeping.

  37. Poor Debbie - I'm sorry I'd missed this, but all your friends prayed for you and now you're better! Thank God.

    Don't overdo. It's not always the easiest thing, though.

  38. I am feeling this way after the move...I am realizing it wasn't the physical that zapped me it was the emotional battle for over a month. I am praying for you that you find an answer and as you wait you rest on the strongest arms in the world. Sorry I missed this when posted first...I am lifting you in prayers right now!
