Butterfly on flower!
I have a confession to make, I'm weary! It was less of a weight last week, but this week it's full blown heavy! Let me look that up real fast to make sure I'm using the right word. Yep, it's the right word. Feeling or showing tiredness, esp, as a result of excessive exertion or lack of sleep. For me this means; more than necessary physical or mental effort. I think I can throw in emotional and spiritual effort too. 

I found it very interesting that in talking with my spiritual director he suggested that I look at weary and ask why it's hanging around. 

Have you ever thought about doing something like asking your weariness why it's there? Well, up until a few years ago, ok it may have been months, I had never thought about doing anything but begging God to take it away from me. 

So I've been asking weary; What is your intent here? How long is the duration going to last? What do I need to do to make you go away!?

The answers I seem to be getting are: Invitation, as long as it takes, pay attention.

I'm going to do more asking. I'm also going to step back and see if the view is any better from back there.

I have been feeling "weary" for several months and a quick trip back "HOME" to Durango fixed my problem.

Many welcoming hugs and" we have missed you" made our stay the best medicine I could have had for "weary." A Saturday evening church service with Zach preaching opened my eyes to a bigger picture and the wearies left me.
Hope you wearies are gone soon.

love you both, Jan and Roger
