Going to bed. Hope for much sleep. Back at 3:36 am on Saturday, July 20, 2019. The usual pain and discomfort, but! Now? This painful misery is not stopping me.
Tenacity. Perseverance. Resolution. Determination …
I am tenaciously determinate to conquer the shinning task You have placed in my mind’s confine. It’s the 7th Day of Rest. I’m working at my best. Working? No rest?
Ha! Resting Underneath Master’s Everlasting Arms …
