Showers, Flowers, and allergies

You know the old adage, "April showers bring May flowers." Well along with the showers comes mold (to which I'm especially allergic). Ray, on the other hand is allergic to most anything green that grows--grass and trees. The spring is a beautiful time of year, but we're a bit on allergy overload right now. The last couple of weeks we've had few days without rain. And just to make it interesting, there have been tornado watches and warnings!

So, we are finding our energy flagging a bit from the allergies. This is at a time that although Holy Week is done, there remains much to do that requires energy. My internship winds up in June and there really isn't that much time between now and then. 

So, basically, I think I may just be whining a bit, but neither Ray nor myself feel very good right now. We're not sick, but just are off the charts with allergies. So, this seems to be another reminder of my inability to do anything in my owns strength, of which there's none at the moment. God's strength is made perfect in weakness according to Paul. It's a good thing with all that tomorrow and the coming days have in store for us. Now if I can only bloom as well as the trees and flowers, I'll be all set.
