Is it just me ?
I feel swamped.
The first week of Great Lent is almost over; I haven't been to a single service, haven't even read any of the services at home, which I normally do.
I never even got round to asking forgiveness of y'all on Sunday, which I do so now most humbly.
Fasting has been erratic to say the very least. The young ones are off for half term break and I am trying hard to get all the laundry etc done in good time for next week's return to school.
Between mother and mother-in-law, we seem to lurch from one anxiety and crisis to the next.
I am managing to hang onto the barest shred of a prayer rule with gritted teeth and clutching fingers, like a drowning man grasping at a straw.........I am praying one stasis of Psalms daily for those whom I know are in need of prayers, and am managing so far to read one chapter of Isiaih daily, as well as one chunk of "Christ in His Saints". More than that is beyond me.
I am just so tired. Work, housework, cold wet dark days are all rather grim at the moment. It must be Lent !
On Tuesday, I have my job interview. Prayers for the acceptance of whatever is the Will of God for me will be most welcome !
