Nothing like getting sick with a bad cold at the end of a great month. Humbling, draining and frustrating on my end of it. All part of the larger picture I can't see.
Too much to do. Too many projects. Falling behind in life isn't something I'd planned or prepared for. Need to pony up in middle age with all the work in progress and leave the easy lifting at the end.
I've been through this valley lots of times and found myself looking back and soon forgetting the pain and pressure.
Psalm 103:12 - "Give us help from trouble; for vain is the help of man."
