When we have M.E or chronic illness, it's all too easy to overextend ourselves and feel overwhelmed. I felt like that recently when I travelled to attend the service where my daughter-in-law was being baptised and my grandson dedicated.
As I sat feeling weak and weary as can be, close to tears, the Lord reminded me of His mercy and grace and how much I had learnt in the process of acceptance so far in this journey of living with M.E.

Could I not simply be thankful for being here in this moment, this day? Could I appreciate this occasion as one of joy instead of struggle? Would I sacrifice my desires for the greater good? And might I allow others to serve me if need be?
