“For I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.” Jeremiah 31:25
Yesterday I felt terrible. My stomach ached and my muscles felt week.
I still ran around trying to get things taken care of. I thought, “Just because I’m sick doesn’t mean the world stops.” About two o’clock I curled over in pain grasping my stomach managing to drop my body on the sofa where I laid still for three hours.
The world did not stop. But I did.
My daughter came home from school and said, “Hi, Mom” from a distance. She made herself a snack and walked the dog before starting her homework. (So thankful for teenagers!)
My husband came in and reheated leftovers, ironed his shirt for work the next day and settled into his comfy recliner.
I eventually showered got ready for bed and read until I went back to sleep.
Yes, I stopped…and life still continued.
