Life doesn't feel normal right now. And I won't cover it up... I'm worrying. A little. I like routine... and well... normalness.
The only thing that really feels normal to me is work and my coffee. Isn't that sad?
My sleep patterns are off. My food cravings are all over the place, and I'm entirely undisciplined. I've been feeling troubled over some personal things. My husband has pneumonia. I have felt headachey and blah off and on all week. And one of our good friends was hospitalized yesterday because they discovered he had suffered a mini stroke. Being in his early 40's, that was just a shocker.
It's really natural to look at the circumstances and feel discouraged. I'm trying to remember that God loves me, so much that Christ laid down His life for me. Why do I doubt that He knows what I need?
I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. John 10:14-15 (ESV)
