Power thru Proverbs – Proverbs 13:12
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.”
Deep sigh, frustrated sound, tears……and that’s not even addressing our 3 year old….that’s me.
I realized the other day that before anything escalated, I needed a time out. I am hopeful of breaks, time to enjoy a book, a cup of coffee, and time to write. I often wait to the point of near burn out to take them. Why do I defer these? When I wait too long, well, my heart is indeed sick.
And when mommy does get a time out for her, and that hope fulfilled, I am a tree of life!
Vibrant, healthy, and fruit bearing.
