Have You Heard?
I'm home with my girl today as she (and I after being woken in the night by her) is not feeling well today. We lead a pretty hectic life where downtime is precious. Between work, school, dancing, church, domestic duties, shopping, visiting, etc, there isn't a lot of time for she and I to just chill so we do get worn out and susceptible to illness. Our lives run fortnightly with Jasmine staying with her father every second weekend, so I feel like we're on a constant spin cycle ALL the time. Thankfully with some rest, TLC and fruit so far today, I can see Jasmine improving.
So, while Jasmine has been relaxing and watching some kids TV, I've been taking some time to read through some blogs and I happened upon this from Andrea at Under Grace and Over Coffee. It is 'Have You Heard?' and it's all about 'spreading the work of Christ'.
Today's post about the site More Than Coping is most fitting for me as I suffer from a mental illness - depression and anxiety. In fact, last night I had a (now) rare anxiety attack. It was brought on by a variety of factors but wasn't as severe as in the past, praise God! It's amazing the amount of Christians that do suffer from a mental illness that is kept under wraps, so it's pleasing to see a site that caters for us!
Please take some time to pop over to both Andrea's blog and the More Than Coping site to see what is on offer. I'm certainly looking forward to not only checking out the More Than Coping site in depth but also what Andrea shares within her 'Have You Heard?' posts. Another great avenue for sharing what Christ is doing in the world!
PS: I'm two posts away from my 200th post (this is 198) and I'm planning a giveaway (a worldwide giveaway - no postage restrictions for this chick!), so keep a look out!
