This encourager needs some encouragement.
Keeping my mind preoccupied from the very shaky state that the world is in right now has been my priority today.
So I rearranged some space to create an office at home, since it will be a longer time than we hoped for. The creativity of that brought me some joy.
Overall, I’m content…but it’s mixed in with one part stress, one part frustration, and many parts sympathy. So when I do turn on the news, my heart hurts for others and my fear returns a bit. It’s a struggle, that. I don’t want to turn a blind eye to the suffering of others. But I also wish I could just ignore the news.
But you know, it’s got to be expected. The down days.
Everyone has down days.
Tomorrow will be a new day, with a new beginning, and another opportunity to keep our eyes fixed on what we can be thankful for.
Just wait and see.
