Tired

I know that many people reading this relate to my title. We are tired people. I am tired of struggling to keep it all together. Guess what? I am not doing a very good job at it. I am tired.

There are many wonderful things in my life. I am blessed and I know it. But I am still tired. I am tired of the crap.

I pray for God's strength. God answers prayer. He knows the plans He has for me. I am comforted by that. But yet I am still tired.

Even the blessings make me tired. That statement is not very Christlike is it. I am blessed that I have 5 healthy children. That is a fact. But there are challenges that make me tired and make me feel very alone.

I am a fortunate person in that my cancer will not likely kill me. And I feel very fortunate indeed. But I am tired. I am tired of the cancer and the freakin treatments and the way that it affects my life.

So I put my eye on the prize. This life that God has given me and knowing that He is beside me and I don't have to walk it alone. But I am still tired.

So yep I rambled but what are blogs for? I did not mean to be a Debbie Downer (stolen from Dawn) but that is how I feel. Tired.

It's ok to be tired, and you're honest. Sure miss seeing you but you're not far from my thoughts and you're in my prayers. Ask Him for the strength, He'll give what you need, just enough for today. Let tomorrow worry about itself. Love you

Gentleman's shirt has also joined the fashion world, no longer was the before stereotypical face. The attractive sharp cotton and kapok adds the silk lining, the soft comfortable cotton and kapok hemp lining, the ever POLO Sweaters For Men lining design style and so on builds a Polo for women polot with many colors fashionable POLO L-Sleeved Shirt For Men world.

I love your honesty, christianity, while offering us so much hope doesn't anesthetize us from the pain of real life. Hope this will encourage you, Isaiah 61:3-4.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
