Under the Weather

I've been a little under the weather the past couple of days. Nothing serious, just achy and tired. I was so glad to get an 'on-call' today from work and just be able to hang out at home. Sometimes we all need a little down time. I know that I tend to cram many things in to my schedule and rarely take time for myself, yet I always feel refreshed when I do take a day off and just hang out, read or nap or what ever.
I also know that I really have nothing to complain about. There are so many people out there that have bigger trials than I do. Some special people have been on my mind alot lately.

One of those is baby Brooke's mom. Remember, I had posted about her a week or so ago. I had asked for prayer for baby Brooke. My patient / friend has been in the hospital for awhile now. I talked to her today. Things weren't going so well. She said her white count was up which could mean infection and she was having contractions. Please keep praying for them. We are all hoping for a miracle for both baby Brooke and her mommy!

Another new blogger friend is Stacy. She is a young mom with 5 children and a recent diagnosis of breast cancer. Visit her blog here to see a woman with the softest heart and hear her testimony. Also pray for her as she navigates the path of cancer treatment. I can only imagine what it must be like to be responsible for your family and to be in pain and not feeling well all at the same time.

Lastly, if you would keep my blogger friend Jody in your prayers also. She is another Christian woman that has seen her shares of heartache, yet continues to praise her God for who He is. She has an amazing story and just went through another anniversary date of the day her little girl died. Anniversary dates are always bitter sweet. You love the memories of that special someone but are incredibly hurt by not having them around any more either.

Tomorrow I plan to get up and just enjoy another day - for that is really all we have - one more day to praise the God who made us and holds us in His hands.

I am so sorry that you are under the weather and will pray that God will restore you quickly and give you back your strength! So glad that you were able to take a day a rest.

My heart is overwhelmed that you shared me with your readers and that you asked them to bring me and my family before the Lord. Thank you, sweet friend! I am touched beyond words.

Yes, one more day......each day is a gift. May we live it to the fullest and praise God for HIs mercy which is new every morning. To Him be the glory!!!

Praying you feel better tomorrow.

Love in Christ,
