When Your Spouse is Sick and Tired

We have all been there. Schedules have to be adjusted and plans canceled. It’s never fun when sickness hits your spouse. How prepared are you to love and cherish your spouse when they get sick and tired?

I am posting today from our bed and it’s 3:45 in the afternoon. Not where I like to be this time of day, but it’s a must for me. I have been fighting this thing for over a month now and doctor’s orders are for me to lay low for the next three weeks. What?! I don’t have time to be sick and tired. But.I.am.

Tom has been great to help me by doing things around the house. I love that about him. He is a servant at heart in all seasons.

The reason I’m sharing this with you is because I am taking a break from the blog for the next couple of weeks. Our kids and grandkids will be visiting and I want to spend my limited energy on them.

We are getting a great response to our survey. If you haven’t taken it yet, won’t you please do so? We want to provide helpful posts relevant to current areas of need. This will also help us know what topics to focus on once I’m better. You can find the survey by going to the post right before this one.

We are grateful for each of you and the way you continually encourage us in our ministry. Enjoy the final days of Summer.

  1. I’m glad you are going to rest. It’s important. I’m sad you are still fighting this though.

  3. Debi, first, I’m praying Yahweh Rapha’s healing over you…and please enjoy your well-deserved time off! We’ll be looking forward to your return.

    I am sick, in fact, I’m dying,
    and that makes me tired, too,
    but there’s no breaks, and no denyin’
    that nothin’s worthless as ‘Boo, hoo!”
    Out home’s a place of safe calm rest
    for abandoned canine souls,
    and they deserve my very best,
    no matter how the night-bell tolls.
    Life is now at the flood of real,
    and what I got just ain’t enough,
    but I will walk through trial by ordeal
    because I am the Boss of Tough.
    Bring it, cancer, and be clear,
    that when you fail, I’ll still be here.
