Paper Plates, the Dishes Can Wait

My body is saying no more. I have pushed it to its limits. After another day in fluorescet lights waiting for an answer to our daughters illness my body will not work. I do not have time for a down day. But I hear His clear voice. Rest. And I become thankful. I can fight the lie that is playing in my thoughts, You are lazy, just get up. Lies told to me by those who do not understand what one day with Lupus or Fibromyalgia is like. Instead I rest in God, knowing my body is not created like others. Despite my body's working flaws  "I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well. (Psalms 139:14 HCSB).
I am remarkably made, God's works are wonderful, he did not make a mistake, and I will praise him to bring him glory through the work he is doing with my wonderfully broken body. Today I will be thankful for paper plates so the dishes can wait. Clean laundry that my never get folded. A day to sit with my children and read. Yes, I thank you Lord, for this good day.
