Today I started my morning off like any other - laying in bed for a few minutes catching up on Words With Friends games. I got up, made my coffee, took my medicine, and got back in bed. Still all part of my routine. First thing to start the day - Bible study.
I first read the chapter my parents' pastor blogs about, then move on to the study-of-the-moment. Today I read 2nd Chronicles instead of 1st and it didn't make sense. Then I found myself skimming the chapter. I never made it to my Beth Moore study Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit.
I called my boss, leaving a voicemail saying I didn't feel well and wouldn't be coming into work. I've spent all morning in bed (save for making myself toast for breakfast) and even went back to sleep for a few hours. I'm still not sure what's up with my body, but fighting it all week hasn't worked. Hopefully giving in will.
Focusing on the good in my life, rather than the bad, is constant work for me. I definitely didn't want to miss doing this week's thankful post - numbers 1584-1635.
