Proverbs 29:18 (King James Version) Where there is no vision, the people perish

I slowly started to lose my vision.
I had stretched myself a little more than even elastic girl could stretch.
Honestly, I was tired.
Home school lessons got a little backed up.
Laundry piled a little too high for my comfort.
And the dust on the bookshelf became a little too thick.
I was no longer swimming.
I wasn't even treading water...
I was drowning.
I needed encouragement.
My husband stayed home from his scheduled outreach.

Other Saints from our church marched on to witness to the lost.
While My husband, the leader of our home, encouraged, prayed & delegated.

1 Timothy 5:8: If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

I just needed that boost-- to know that things could be made right and order could be restored to my house.
My vision for my home has been restored.
I will be OK.
Because without this vision, the little people in my home will perish.

{When I am weak Jesus makes me strong}

God bless you Wendy! From afar you seem like a superwoman but the reality is none of us are and at some point we all get stetched to the end of our elastic limits and it all becomes to much! You have a wonderful husband and wonderful support systems through your faith. Thinking of you - Rachaelxo p.s. the pile laundry always gets to me a but a bit of dust never hurt anyone:)

So glad you are encouraged again and have your 'vision' back!
