And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (Gal. 6:9).
Are you a mother who struggles with chronic illness or even just plain old exhaustion? I hope to begin a brand new series just for you. You may also enjoy the current MOTHER-DAUGHTER series. Be brave, have a look around the blog. You will find articles about MARRIAGE, DIVORCE, DATING, and others–thoughts and teaching you may need for your situation.
Having struggled with joint deterioration and just plain old “too much to do” most of my life, my heart goes out to other mothers who have health issues, who have grown weary of their position or are going through a difficult season. Motherhood is a calling–a work like no other; and mothering through sickness, fatigue or depression presents a special challenge. I have been there, and it has always been such a comfort to know that our faithful Father in Heaven is there too.
My hope is to share with you the beautiful truths He has reminded me of on hard days, to point you to Him, to encourage you when the way seems dark, weary and lonely – and to remind myself of these things as well. I also hope to offer some simple ideas for running a full household on a limited budget (FOOD AND FAMILY), limited (or no) help, limited or no energy and remind us all of what holy women of God have done in the past. We will take a look at the good and bad examples in the Bible and learn much from each one.
Let’s encourage each other to take heart, to be strong, to be of good cheer and of good courage. Our God is the God of the impossible; the Giver of Strength in weakness, Light in darkness, Joy in sorrow, Beauty for ashes, Faithfulness in affliction and Hope for eternity.
