I CAN DO ALL THINGS; YET, I SHOULD LET OTHERS DO SOME OF IT… 9/02/2021 … Thursday …

I think learning to let go of trying to do it all may be one of the most important lessons that I am learning. Since childhood, I have wanted to be a part of every activity: dance, scouts, piano, band, groups, clubs, school – sign me up! No wonder my mother had a hard time remembering where I was on which day.

At the time, that was doable. Now it isn’t. I can not read every book, every article, every email. I can’t soak it all in if I hope to appreciate the beauty of life.

Sometimes I really do have to deal with problems that can overwhelm, as do we all. Health, finances, cooking, typing, house, car, pets, … fill in the blank for what gets to you.

It is for these times I pray for peace, for strength, for help. This is not our burden alone.
