When It’s All Been Said

When it’s all been said

and my spirit flies away

may love have spoken

Wendy / 2016

When I’m feeling like a wrung out dish rag that’s too tattered to make it through another wash and rinse cycle without disintegrating, and I’m tempted to throw a pity-party (without balloons or guests), I look up and remind myself where I’m headed when this feet on the ground adventure is finished.

~

Within nanoseconds I sense a Presence.

~

And unlike voices from the past who would have told me to pull myself up by my whatever-straps (I rarely wear boots), I hear a whispered, “I’ll lift you up.”

And that’s enough to make my spirit soar.

I know where I’m going.

I know Who loves me.

Now excuse me while I go about my Father’s business.

How do you handle the temptation to indulge in self-pity when you’re feeling overwhelmed?
