Are you excited? Sigh. Maybe it's winter blahs. Maybe it's Spring fever. Maybe it's just plain old down in the dumps. Whatever it is, it's no fun. 1. I have no friends (other than my wonderful husband, but he's gone all the time). I try to reach out, but my schedule never meshes with anyone else. I had my Mom, but her email time has been restricted. I have my goat, but I can't understand her. 2. I'm at home almost all the time, with my 5 kids. Don't get me wrong, I love them to death, but I can only talk just so much about which super hero is cooler and why. I would go to more meetings, but our family fills up the van, and the van is needed to carry the believers to the meetings. It's a sacrifice for the work. 3. I'm having some health problems and am unsure of how to get it taken care of here, though I'm going to try. It's pressing on the mind. 4. Then there is all the other everyday missionary struggles---language, finances, balancing home and ministry, etc, etc, etc. I don't know for sure what I'm trying to accomplish by this post. Maybe just to vent. I don't know. Maybe just a few "Hang in there, sister Spinach, you'll be ok" or "I'll be praying for you"s. You know, when Elijah had his pity party, the Lord supplied the cake. Maybe He will do the same for me.
