Folks, I'm tired...

I am so very very tired right now. And my heart is discouraged. The recent events with Skaterboy have made me question everything. Who the hell did I think I was to be entrusted with the lives and spiritual well-beings of these five amazingly perfect little souls? How can I begin to do this? I thought I could. I even thought I was pretty darn good at it.

But now...I'm tired.

And that was just the moment I stumbled upon this. 1 Kings 19:5-7 (New International Version)

5 Then he lay down under the tree and fell asleep.
All at once an angel touched him and said, "Get up and eat." 6 He looked around, and there by his head was a cake of bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again.

7 The angel of the LORD came back a second time and touched him and said, "Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you."

"the journey is too much for you."

If I try to do this alone, I'm bound to screw it up. But with God's grace and the angels He sends to feed me, we just might make it through.

I'm thankful that I am never left alone.
