I have had a period of sickness, and even after it passed it left some weakness behind. This has given me more opportunity to listen to books and consider how to apply the learning. This week the book was Second Samuel of the Bible.
When I am strong I sometimes put too much faith in my own power, but I really have everything by the grace of God. I called my mother, who is weak from muscular dystrophy, to remember humility and to add compassion to my prayers.
