It's been a tough couple of weeks inside my head.
The tropical wet season pattern of heavy cloud, high humidity, rain showers, sun, heavy cloud, high humidity, rain showers, sun etc. which hasn't altered in a while plays havoc with my migraines.
About 80% of my migraines are triggered by barometric pressure and there's simply no pill or treatment available to stem that tide.
Today I was going to push myself to get today's book study post up but quite frankly I'm not thinking clearly and don't feel like reading. I'd rather curl up on our bed with the air conditioner running, a comforting audio book playing in the background while the painkillers take hold, and my life holding no distractions or expectations until things inside my head settle.
So I'm postponing this week's book study till next week.
And I'm also going to offer some encouragement to those of you who feel hurried, overwhelmed with expectations, in pain or quite simply frazzled by any number of things life has brought across your path. I read this quote recently and it's pretty much what has become my time-out pass today, but I think there's a wealth of wisdom in the advice offered for you too.
So sweet one, give yourself a rest - whether of mind or body - and allow God's peaceful spirit to calm you, His grace to cover you, His generosity to supply your needs, and His guidance to lead you into tomorrow.
“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” -- St. Francis de Sales
Sending you the biggest hugs,
