So I don’t recall being “sick and shut in” for this weekends forecast, however the rain was fitting for the occasion. My whole entire house had a stomach virus. My 4 year old son started off as soon as he woke up and couldn’t keep anything down. A few hours later after coming from the doctors, little man was diagnosed as dehydrated, daddy had a fever and the chills. As for me, I had stomach cramps everytime I had to get up, which was often because baby girl was hardly affected outside of a few loose diapers.
Do you know what it feels like to be sick and yet still have to keep up with a 2 year old? Not to mention I still had to tend to everyone else (someone had to be praying for my patience). My mother- in-law came over to pray and to administer the “onions in the socks” remedy. Now I know that method is useful for breaking fevers, but oh the smell!
Nevertheless, after much needed rest, fluids and lots of tasty jello, I am happy to report that everyone is doing well. I thank God for his strength and his will in my life. I also never forget the power of prayer and his WORD.
Isaiah 53:5 says, “But he was wounded for out transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
Happy Sunday everyone and try to stay healthy in this changing of the season’s!
