It’s early on the first day of Daylight Savings time, and I went to bed too late. Coffee hasn’t kicked in yet, and I need to leave in a couple hours for church. I will be “springing forward” to help pack 125 boxes of food after our worship service for our monthly drive-thru distribution, so I need to get myself ready and out the door.
I don’t feel very springy for a variety of reasons. What about you? Are you feeling weary today? You’re not alone. Life for many has gotten very challenging with reported bad news everywhere. Continual warfare in Ukraine, devastating storms, increased prices on everything, political upheaval, and family situations.
It’s tempting to not even try to count our blessings, but let me encourage you to do so. I have much for which to be thankful – hopefully you do too. If you have a roof over your head, heat, food, clothes, a working vehicle, job or retirement income, etc., you are blessed compared to many others. Let’s try to be a blessing to others in these difficult days. God’s word tells us that we are blessed to be a blessing. Spring foward!
God bless – Sue
