I ended up extremely ill two nights ago.
I was sort of expecting it. My youngest daughter had the stomach flu two nights ago and I took close care of her. Our family has been so sick for the last six weeks! Someone has been in bed or on the bathroom floor almost every day. We’ve even cycled through some illnesses, like the flu, more than once. I think I’ve been praying for our families good health for weeks now!
So why am I telling you all this? I guess to point out that I have been reminded of a few things overnight.
1- God’s Will- I keep praying for good health and He keeps giving us just the opposite! He knows best and I don’t understand why all this bad luck is upon us. I do know He has a plan. So maybe it’s that we slow down or that I miss the drive to work where there was a very bad traffic accident on my route. I don’t know. But You do and I respect that.
2- True Love- My husband took really good care of me last night when I was at my lowest moments. At one point I even blacked out, a very frightening moment indeed. He laid with me on the cold hardwood floor of our bathroom to comfort me in my despair, knowing full well that if he stuck around he was likely next for this retched illness. What a wonderful man I have in my life.
3- Prayer- one other thing I had been praying about is for God to give me a kick in the pants and get back on track with my self-controlled eating and weight loss plan. I have such little self-control with sweets that I’ve been eating too many calories! Well, I guess He gave me the kick in the pants I’ve been asking for! I can start fresh tomorrow with small, healthy meals!
Sometimes when you ask you will receive! So be careful what you ask for! LOL!
4- Clean Water- I can’t wait to take a shower and get clean! For now, I can’t get out of bed, but hopefully later today I will be able to appreciate a warm, cleansing shower! Thank you Lord for my warm home with running, clean water. I recognize not everyone in the world has this luxury.
That’s all for now, gotta rest.
