“[yawn]…I wish [yawn] that I had [yawn] more stam [yawn] ina,” I murmured to my indefatigable husband.
“If you lost some weight, you would get your wish,” replied my straightforward spouse. “It’s just like the bushy tomatoes in the garden. If they don’t get pruned soon, they are going to produce a few small tomatoes. But if you cut back some of the extra shoots, you will be amazed at the fruit it bears.”
What a perfect picture. That’s my man: clarity and truth-telling with kindness. It sounds so reasonable when he says it.
Reflecting over the weekend, I also realized that I got dehydrated and that contributed to my sense of weariness.
It’s back to the basics: pray, drink, move, give thanks, sleep. All to the glory of God.
