Our company arrived yesterday. This family of eight consists of
six children, fifteen on down to four. Things are going so smoothly, it is amazing. Perhaps I could feel sorry for myself, by swallowing the lie that I am not needed. Instead I am seeing how great the children are at stepping up and willing to serve where I can’t. My friend and I have grabbed a couple of great conversations, but then she sends me off to rest. It is hard to leave the hub bub, but it seems best if I can lay down a lot.
It is no fun to be under the weather, but it is always good for
me to be reminded of my frailty. At times I have been in such pain that all I could do is mutter, “Jesus”. Thankfully, the pain is not all of the 24 hrs in a day, but it does seem worst when it is sleeping time.
God knows all our pains, physical and emotional. He is with us, always! Rescue may not be His plan for this moment, but strength and courage are the rewards He has to offer.
