Too Busy? My Calendar for the month.
Have you ever felt like you are too busy to keep up with your basic chores? When this happens, I become exhausted, disorganized and absent-minded. I soon recognize the need to step back and re-access my schedules.
Last week I had a Doctors appointment. Getting ready to start my one-hour trip to the city, I spotted my heart rate on my Fitbit again. 154 is a little high I thought; I take blood pressure medication; did I forget to take it the night before?
Buy the time I ran out the door it had reached up to 164, so I swallowed two aspirins and wondered if I should go to the emergency room or straight to my appointment. I decided to head straight for my doctor.
Speeding down the highway, I checked my Fitbit once more, my blood pressure had risen to 192, I promptly took another aspirin. By the time I reached Lethbridge, my heart rate was at 290. At that moment, I figured my Fitbit was out of whack.
Seeing my physician and finding out my blood pressure was it’s regular 114, calmed me down. It was later I realized I had been reading my daily steps, not my heart rate.
Sometimes we are so busy we barely have a chance to take a breath. I have felt like that these last few years. I’m uncertain if it’s because of my age, or my bounce is a little slower. lol
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
These last few years I have learned to lean and rest on God promises. According to one account, there are 3573 promises in the Bible. A promise for every need. We are blessed.
He is the one who fully knows me and unconditionally loves me. He makes my life complete. I love you, Lord.
Thank you, dear friends, for spending your time with me.
I love you all and am praying.
