Caregiving is Easier With Faith?
Several months ago I was sharing some of the things I deal with in caring for mom. The person I was talking with, said, "Well, at least you have the Lord in your life, that makes it easier!" I immediately answered with, "No, it doesn't." I know and will state, that without the Lord, I would have never been able to handle these past years as mom's caregiver. It is He that I can run to for help, He is a very present help in time of need. He is my Strong Tower, the Shelter from the storm. He is my peace, and my strength. However, I am flesh and blood. I make mistakes, I hurt, I grow weary, I despair, I get depressed, I get angry, I get frustrated. I have experienced all areas of emotions possible, and I think sometimes some that are not! But because of Him, I can face tomorrow...again and again.
