I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, and without Him I can do nothing.
(Phil. 4:13 & John 15:5)
I am tired this evening. It's been a long weekend and I am ready for bed and a good night's sleep. I am rediscovering the truth of these verses as I deal with a small and highly determined child who not only fights going to sleep at night, but wakes at the crack of dawn. I have quickly learned that an afternoon nap is not a good idea with this little boy, no matter how nice a quiet hour may seem. We purposed to wear him out today in the hopes that he will sleep long and deep.
Hannah and the group from church returned from their trip to Grenada late last night. Please pray for them as they deal with the adjustment back to everyday life after a week full of children and excitement on a tropical island. Hannah said she wanted to turn the plane around instead of come home. I can't say as I blame her though I have never been away on a missions trip to a foreign country. Coming home from summer camp was hard enough. Shoot, even coming home from Minnesota was a letdown.
It's bound to be an exhausting and emotional week.
