We have had sick days in our home the last three days. My little man came home from school Wednesday afternoon and slept for two hours. He never naps. He didn’t have a fever and didn’t show any signs of illness other than being tired. I assumed he was tired from getting back in the routine of school until Thursday evening the fever came. Along with pains and more napping. My child is sick and so am I. It hasn’t been too bad and I am blessed that it isn’t the flu or even strep. So far appears to be just a virus. His fever broke last night and lots of firetrucks are on rescue missions in my living room.
We still had fun times together. Of course you can’t go without taking some crazy family pictures! Especially our family!
I was planning on writing a post today that I have been praying about but I am going to save that until I am fully prepared. The sick days have consumed us to say the least. At least I was able to get my dishes done and not have a sink full today. I am studying one scripture from the bible each week and this week I am reading Romans 15:1-4. I was overwhelmed reading this since I have been taking care of my sick child while not feeling well myself and keeping up with my daughter and our home. I jokingly posted on facebook that mom’s really can’t get sick and then I read this.
I love how God will use scriptures that we are studying, or show them to us when we need him,, to remind us of his teachings and promises. You really need chapter 14 and 15 of Roman to understand what Paul is teaching us. The transformation in the renewing of our minds which should demonstrate by the change in our attitudes towards others. In Romans Paul is sharing final instructions to his readers encouraging us to seek and please others. We are to serve the needs of others and put their needs before ours. Even Christ did not please himself as we read. The words in the bible are for our teaching and inspiration.
Jesus is our example to be strong with grace from the Lord. With his love in us we will help the weak in faith. Through the endurance we will have patience and comfort from the bible to give us hope. Just as the Lord provides for us and comforts us we will provide and comfort others in need just the way the Lord has planned.
The last three days I have taken care of this sick little boy. God reminded me of helping others in need, especially in our home. Our family is our ministry to witness too. I will continue to comfort him, love him, take care of his needs, serving him because that is what Jesus would do.
Have a beautiful Saturday Lovelies! I pray that you will see those unexpected divine moments around you today to help someone else, completely selfless. Even if it is just to pray, listen, laugh, or give. Even if it is those closest to you. Even if it’s just a sick day.
