Spring has sprung and so have I ?

My how time flies when you're dashing off to bed! Unbelievable! And here I thot I'd posted not that long ago. Ooops!

So I dropped in just to post a reminder that May 12th is about here again. I hope you all will remember to let people know that is CFS Awareness Day...and FM Awareness and MCS Awareness Day too. Yes, somehow they put them all together on the same day. I suppose that makes sense since they do seem to overlap symptoms and many people have more than one. Some think they are all one and the same. Which one depends on who you talk to.

I had planned to make Doorknob hangers and small downloadable posters you can print off and stick in your windows, hang on your front door etc but unless I get to feeling better real quick and find some time I might not get that done this year. I will post here and announce it if and when I do. Meanwhile do take a look at the other things that are already available on my site including the t-shirts ! !

It's Easter Soon !

Easter time snuck up on me this year ! Here I thought we were weeks away yet only to find out it is this sunday already. How time flies when you're laying in bed, huh?!

I could easily whine about the tremendous brainfog and fatigue I've been having these last several weeks but instead I wish to think about spring, and Easter...

Besides bunny rabbits and cute little chicks, eggs all decorated in pretty shades of pastels I think of children's giggles as the hunt eggs and chew on jelly beans.

I think of the newness spring brings. Flowers poking their noses through the soil. Birds chirping in my trees. Mostly I think about the new life our Saviour gives, the reason we celebrate Easter - His sacrafice and Resurrection.

This year I wish to stop a few minutes and ponder not only the spiritual aspects that salvation brings but also what that means to our bodies and souls. How thankful I am that I do not have to be perfect in myself. I don't have to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. And I don't even have to carry the weight of my own failures, shortcomings and sin. He daily carries my burdens.

Because He lives I can face tomorrow----

How happy I am for I know that My Redeemer Lives !
