The bad news is I got off early, the good news is I got off early! It's all how you look at it. No, I don't get paid when I am off, but at least they called and I got to go home early if I wasn't getting paid. I ran and errand the went home and put on work out clothes and ran, week 2 day 1 5k to 10k run. A few more errands including the Laundry Mat (I had to use the supersize washer for a dog bed). It was a pretty day and I wore shorts but the cold returned over night and worsens till Thursday.
My Bible study and Feasting on the Lord has continued well with many lessons on Forgiveness, Fruit, and Gifts. My favorite statement from Joyce Meyers is Gifts without Fruit are dangerous. Fruit is the evidence of a growing and deepening relationship with Jesus. I have said that my stamina has lacked in past months as I have tried to do more and more. Since November before my December hernia surgery particularly. I was trying to do more at work like I used to do! Well I can't. As I did more I ran less, studied the bible less, had less for my husband and God, and increased my stress. I don't need to go there again because evidence of God's Fruit lessened in my life. I just was drained and had nothing left over.
God has been helping me see this. Putting God first again instead of him just getting the leftovers of which there were little if any on a daily basis. The rest of the financial and business things will have to be what adjusts from now on. I am not going back to that old person who did so much she was deteriorating physically gaining weight each and every month. Done with that is my plan!
