We all need a little prayer...

Okay I hate to admit it but I'm human. As much as I try to shoulder a lot, sometimes I break down.  I'm looking for all prayer warriors out there.  Lately I'm under attack.  Things just aren't going the way they should and for those of you that don't know, I have tumid lupus.  It seems to be getting worse.  I have flare-ups on my face of all things and my body aches pushing me into fatigue.  I try to cover it all up and smile and have to go through the day working and pretending that everything is alright when it is not. 

I try to keep others inspired which inspires me..but sometimes we just need to lean on each other.  Now is one of those times.  Are you going through the day smiling a fake smile as I am lately?  Is someone you know not as cheery?  Think about what someone else may be going through and say a prayer for them today.  Sometimes we all just need some uplifting.    You know I don't smile a lot right now - I'm hurting.  For those that truly know me - will see through my fake smile, but it is suprising how much people just don't take the time to really look at one another. Even family gets busy and doesn't realize.  We have lost touch.   We are so rushed. So busy.  Take time and look at those around you.  I bet there is someone out there that can use a hug, a card, a prayer.  Do you?

My prayer and wish for you all reading this is that you will all be kept safe, healthy and protected.  That you will feel blessed by today and be a blessing to others.  Slow down and really see those around you.  They won't be in your life forever.  We all plan to retire and live a long life, yet so many times, I'm reminded that always doesn't happen.  A past coworker of mine recently died.  He was 65.  I bet he planned his whole life waiting for retirement.  Don't wait - live today, enjoy today and be a blessing to someone today.  Don't live with regrets.    What will you do?  Drop me a line and let me know.
Until next time...


  1. I'm so sorry you are going through such a tough time. Hang in there. Hopefully the flare-ups go away soon. In the meantime, it sounds like a great time to ask your husband for a relaxing back massage. :-) I'm praying for you!

  2. I said a little prayer for you and I know that His Healing hands are upon you. His Grace will sustain you and the Joy of the Lord is your strength. He will intoxicate your heart with laughter in Jesus precious name. Amen and Amen. God bless you :-)
