"Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28, NIV
Could your soul use some rest?
Even the most gregarious, compassionate personalities can find it isolating and exhausting to be a family caregiver for a loved one whose health challenges are significant and ongoing.
As a caregiver, your days (and, often, nights) are like a marathon event you entered without a day of training...and no one is handing you a water bottle. Add the strain of a global pandemic, further isolation, threats to your physical health, and continuous toxic stress from so many unknowns. What a mess!
You're committed to stay the course with someone you love who needs care, but you're also beyond tired and thirsty for a break. I'm right there with you, friend.
Whatever caregiving mess you find yourself in, I'm offering fresh perspective, practical tips, and biblical touchpoints to refresh you...body, mind and spirit. God is at work in your mess. Let's focus on the blessings there.
