Gratituesday- Sick



Oh what a week. I have been sick since last Tuesday. I was not sick all cozy at home in my bed... I was sick 1010.42 km (627.85 miles) away from home at my in laws island house.  As well we took a trip from there to my mom's house which was  539.54 km (335.26 miles).  All with fever chills and other nasty icky sick symptoms. (Did I mention that there were 3 ferry rides each way?)

Misery!!

(Praise God for a week of scheduled posts before I left).

God works all things for good.  (ALL things!!!  Even the really gross not polite to blog about things!!!)

*I was blessed with so much time to just lay at the feet of Jesus.  I had so much time to soak up His presence.  I totally did not take nearly enough advantage of that time, but God made it available to me.

*I was blessed by the kindness of others.  My father in law packing me some Gravol for the trip. (really very touching).  My sister gave up her bed so I could have a room to myself to rest and sleep in.  My mom braided my hair and brought me Gatorade.  All little things that really mattered to me.

*My children were well taken care of while I was ill.  Craig goes back to work tomorrow so if I had been sick this coming week my house would have seen a lot of movies and cheerios.  Instead they were out having great adventures with their dad and grandparents.

God is good all the time!  All the time God is good!
