Small Tasks

Updated on April 10, 2016

April 10, 2016

I miss work. I enjoy working when I feel well. I have a lot of work to do around home. Breathing difficulties slow me down, and tire me out easily

Our floors need improvement. Our car needs 5to be washed by hand . Too much dirt has accumulated on our car. I need to repair our wheelchair ramp.

Once in a while I work on a song I created to honor God. I have played it, and worked on it , for years. Anxiety still pesters the heck out of me.

Today is a good day to buy gasoline , for our riding lawn mower. This is a good day to enjoy the outdoors. Becky is sitting on our porch in her wheelchair. She enjoys watching squirrels , rabbits, raccoons, possums, and lizards.

We have a flea problem. I have flea granules to distribute in our yard. Hopefully this will reduce the fleas to a lesser number.

I would like to create some art work. I may draw more saints.

I need to check the oil in our lawn mower. Grass is growing fast, and I need to cut some weeds from around my deceased mother's house.

I have lost some of my desire to eat. Often I have to force myself to eat because I throw up in the mornings. Sometimes I breath well, and sometimes I struggle for air. I do not think it will be my heart , or kidneys that will do me in. I think it will be suffocation. troubled by severe anxiety..

I have a lot of doctors. I have two kidney doctors, two, or three cardiologists, a primary doctor that helps me with diabetes that helps me to determine whatever kind of medicine I should take. I take around sixteen medications a day.

Joann my wife got sick last night. I stayed up all night with her because she kept on throwing up.

She is feeling better today. Becky has been O.K. Our pets mean a lot to us. They are important in our lives.

God Bless

      You sound like me when I let myself get overwhelmed with all of the things that need done, most of which I can no longer do on my own. I have been praying for God's strength and know that what is impossible for me is very possible for Him. My focus gets scattered too when I start doing one task and see something else that needs done. That's when nothing gets finished and I sometimes leave a bigger mess than I started with. It's so hard when a person is no longer able to do the things we used to but you take such good care of your family and have for many years now. Stay on one task, thank God for allowing you to have the strength to do that part, even if it is not finished, you made a difference. Be satisfied with knowing you are doing you best, our Father knows your heart.

      We most know that by Jesus blood we are saved and that we could never be good enough by ourselves to get to heaven but only through Jesus but the bible also tells us that by his stripes we are healed, meaning He took all our pain and sickness on His body before He died such as it says in Isaiah 53:4-5.

      It is not easy to stand on all the bible promises but I feel much better when I try. Jesus never passed up anyone needing help and He never will.

      God bless you and I pray Jesus' hand reach out to you and your family. He loves you so much. Your friends here love you too.
