" Fear not, for I have redeemed you.
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour."
Isaiah 43:1-4

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." Psalm 51:10

Feeling puny

I've got my first cold of the year, and it's the first time in 40 years that I've had work to go to when I felt bad.  Makes me admire how MANY, many times my husband went to work feeling horribly bad.   He was such a good provider.

In the night last night, I coughed so hard my lungs burned and I thought that I was going to be heading out to the doctor's office.  But I managed to grab a nap midmorning, and I feel okay to go on into work right now.   My biggest problem seems to be that I don't have much appetite, so it's hard to keep up my energy; but God got me through yesterday, and I know I can continue to count on Him.

Hope you're all doing well and enjoying the change in seasons.


  1. I'm sorry you caught that cold, and I hope you have a speedy recovery. This is the time of year for sure. It rained here most of the day and I missed the sunshine for sure. But...I have started a jigsaw puzzle and it is relaxing while I listen to Audibile's free audio book 'Cloudy Jewel' by Grace L. Hill. I have always loved her books.

    1. Oh, I love her books. I never thought of looking for them on audible.

      I'm trying my best not to call in sick as I figure that since I'll turn 60 in a few weeks, surely there will be things that I need a sick day for more than just a cold. I'm being a wimp.


Thanks for stopping by !
