Taking toll...

Nope! I didn't get to do any of those special, dreamy things I had planned out for the leap day  - it has come and gone just like any other day!

This alone weighs me down today as I sit down to take a toll of the many days that have just come and gone - just like today. Yesterday, the day before, the day before that, last Monday, last 1st of the month, the last leap day four years ago, it's all gone! Forever! Here I am moving on to the next new month, as if nothing has changed a bit!

Mhhhhhmmmm - that was a BIG sigh that just escaped me. As I was thinking hard about all the toil for so little returns, turned to read my Bible and landed on Psalm 127, verse 2 which was direct and goes: In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves.

So true, it's all vain.

If only I can save the weekends for myself, I would be wise. But no; I have to have company; either I visit or I invite and there goes the weekend!

It's all absolutely vain.

Shut me down somewhere where there is no access to the outside world - just me and my family with some clean sheets and comfy pillows and please dim the lights on your way out. Yes, that will do! Thank you!

But then I know if I give up now I will regret it as soon as I am back to my senses. So shoving my thoughts aside, getting ready for more toiling and of course to cherish the new month! 

Happy March folks!

You are not asking for pots of gold or a large mansion in an exotic location or a luxury yacht on the ocean. Your wish in the penultimate para is so petty and small that Lord should grant it without loss of time.
Nice reading:))

I know what you mean! Why don't you buy a bouquet of flowers? That always cheers me up. Happy March Madness!

That got me thinking, but we deserve lazy days too!

God listens. I know this. He hears and replies in the most unexpected time or manner. :)

My thoughts are with you, here's hoping you soon get to have 'your day'. Only human, we all need time to have that breather,to consider just where our lives are heading.
