Monday Spiritual Ruminations– beleaguered , belated, but not yet belabored…

It is Tuesday, not Monday.

I spent most of Monday parked in an easy chair with a blanket over me.

I do not know for certain but suspect that old lady Lupus is up to her tricks again. I am beleaguered by this sneaky disease.

So I do what I must–I surrender to the fatigue and hunker down under something warm until I feel better.

In that act of giving over, I also surrendered the need to be prompt with this posting, thus, I am belated.

And lest I belabor the point, let me simply offer this piece of Scripture that, for centuries, has brought comfort to those who are simply worn out:

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart;

and you will find rest for yourselves.”

[Matthew 11:28-29   NABRE]

And now, I shall rest…

August sun through fog

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!

  1. Sending prayers for feeling better. We have a common enemy. The disease that destroyed my kidneys in less than 6 months is lupus like. I have developed a mental toughness. I hear the same thing in you. I have a disease but I am not my disease. Love your ability to recognize and implement self care!!
