Caring for the sick at the White house


Oh, my beloveds, how I hate to see you down.

No laughter, no feet running to and fro.

Fevers, cough, and headaches, a part of my

daily bread.
Thanking the Lord for comforts that
I can offer to my kids.
My bed
My time
My love
not to mention
Motrin
Popsicles
Movies


A warm place to lay their sick heads
with their brothers and sisters
who are also sick
Going by and kissing their hot
heads and telling them
how very much I love them
Looking forward to
tomorrow when my
Love is returned.
I missed his drawings today.
I missed his smile...........
Stopping what I had planned and
doing what God commanded
Taking care of the least of these.....

Holding Channie until her fever went down
Her body hot against mine.
A sweet time to send a prayer up
on behalf of my kids on behalf
of my house-hold.

Looking forward
to a new day
when
Lord willing
my home is
loud again...




"When Trouble or heartaches or sickness come....
trust in God and do the next thing."

Isn't it sad when the little ones are sick and the house is just too quiet. Praying that you all are better soon and I hope those little babies stay well. I also wanted to tell you I just love the song on your blog. It is just beautiful. I often play it while I'm on the computer just to hear it in the background. Get better soon!!! Missy in TN
