It is amazing how the feeling of being stretched in too many different directions can sometimes make simple tasks seem too hard. I hope Donna doesn’t mind me talking about this, but it just was too good of an example of this to pass up. Donna has been working on a variety of different things in several different spheres lately. Being a missionary requires you to work in different languages in what feel like different planets. Well, Donna was fixing supper one evening and I came in to talk and help with some things. She said she was feeling tired and just wanted to sit down. I looked around and there was a stool near her.
But this stool had two things on it: a book and a small basket. I went over to the stool, removed the two items, and said, “Here, why don’t you sit down?” She immediately sat down and said, “Oh that feels good.”
I think probably everyone everywhere has moments when they feel stretched too thin. In those times even simple things can look really hard. I am thankful that God brings people into our lives to help us, and I realized that I want be on the look out to help in those situations.
