I’m lucky enough to be moving to a lovely house, and lucky enough to be given money to renovate it in one go. We’re redoing the kitchen and putting in two new bathrooms. We’re even lucky enough to be able to continue renting so that my M.E. isn’t exacerbated by the noise and dust of builders.
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?…“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:26-27, 34
