This past week has been a bit of a long week. With two sick kids, thankfully on the mend, and now a sick husband up in bed with the same thing...I have had to lay aside any of my desires this week and focus on the needs of my family. (Beside Wednesday when my husband watched the sick boys so I could throw a surprise shower for my friend who's getting married tomorrow!)
It's been long, yet through it all, I've had great peace. I started reading a book that has blessed me with peace for this week. I know that my family is my number one priority and they need all of me.
Beside the support of my mom, I've gotten my greatest source of strength from looking upward.
This morning the song/verse that was going through my head: I lift my eyes up, up to the mountains. Where does my help come from? My help comes from You, maker of heaven. (Ps. 121: 1-2)
This is where I've gotten my strength this week.
Actually, I've had some tender moments with my boys. It may have been at 2 am, but having Luke asleep on me, I've been able to pray for him, his cough, his future, his walk with the Lord. God is good and I am thankful for your prayers!
