A Reminder

What a precious visit Joel and I had on Saturday. Four and a half hours of uninterrupted conversation; how could it go by so fast, never seem like enough? But before I knew it our time was over, and I was saying goodby and trying not to look too sad as I waved and was ushered out of the visiting area. Why does it get harder and harder to say good by?

I went from rejoicing on Saturday, to doldrums on Sunday….sick myself and caring for a sick child. It was a long, trying day. One of those days that reminds me of how weak I am. A day of frustration in my own limitations. And a reminder of my own tendency to rely on self. How quickly I fail when I find my strength in me. A little physical limitation is all it takes to show me  my frailty, that without Christ I am nothing.

So today, feeling a little better, though uncharacteristically tired, I am pondering rest. I am contemplating the lesson of weakness.  I hate being sick…I hate feeling weak. But my physical condition awakens my heart to my spiritual condition. It speaks to me of the weakness that requires rest–His Rest.
