Pressed Down, but not Crushed, Troubled but not quite in Despair. At least not yet!

I hope to be back soon.

I miss blogging and sharing community here in blogworld.

The last few weeks have been veiled over with gray and dark for me. Which is ironic, seeing as the leaves are bursting forth, the blossoms have been blooming and the days are growing longer.

I have enough energy to barely run the bakery, tend to business and kids. But not another ounce for anything else. I can't remember when I went so long without writing anything. I am pressed down, wrung out, and terribly concerned about some matters dealing with a child.

It is shocking how many of you check in on me. You are dear to me, and I appreciate you.

Yesterday I reminded myself that the Lenten season is a good time to feel one's weakened state. To feel needy.

So, as we near the end of this season of hunger, I pray we would all be filled. That as we witness the resurrection in the world around us, birthing life and color and green, we would be restored, refreshed and renewed. (I'm guessing there must be at least one other soul out there feeling like I do!)

I always find Lent hard; it seems that something always comes up that does, indeed, underscore my "weakened state". I am earnestly looking forward to Sunday's "Hallelujahs!"

I hope the sun breaks forth through your "gray and dark" very soon.

Ginger, so sorry. You and your family are in my prayers. I hope you are able to feel some light in your heart and your troubles lifted.

I'm happy to see these words....even though they are sorrowful words.

I for one have needed to see you in the written word..even though I've heard your voice.

We all need each other so very much.

Greatest of all love for each one of you, His love.

Oh, I'm so glad to see just something on here! I'd been checking but...nothing. No, you're not the only one and worries of a child can beat down the most dedicated and prayerful mom. Hang in there, it does get better and know others are praying for you, too.
