Leading a Double Life

53577797_10155826637806244_8815818694601998336_nMy column for the week in the Beatrice Daily Sun tells you part of the story.


My farm life is messy – full of cows, calves and a lot of manure, mud or snow and freezing temperatures right now.  To top it off, Klinger is now at the vet being treated for pneumonia.  (Don’t tell my husband, but I transported another calf in my jeep!)

My work and family life – just as crazy right now.  Grants, meetings, deadlines, phone calls to return and more emails than I can manage.

I’m physically and mentally exhausted.  I’m so overwhelmed right now that I want to cry, but instead I write and I pray.

“God give me strength to get through this day.”

And He gave me this:

Psalm 46:1 – “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

Isaiah 41:10 – “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
