for when your weariness shows…

I’m untucked here,
and wrinkled there.

Darker bags
and puffier eyes.

Yet, I thought I had it
hidden well.

The extra care around others,
the pasted on smile,
another layer of concealer…
these only served to fool me.

I’m tired.

It shows.

And, caring friends have noticed.

Here’s the thing,
there isn’t any major crisis going on in in my life
and to my knowledge I’m not fighting any major disease.
It’s just the stuff of life.

Do you ever get this way?

Does the weariness of life ever creep up your bones
and settle deep within your heart?

Jehovah whispered these cooling,
soothing words to my heart this morning…

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.
At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. 
Galatians 6:9

So, when weariness settles deep and wide
and threatens to spill out,
take these words to heart.

Maybe they will soothe and cool
your weary heart too.

I'd love to know what you think...
