"Spiritual" Cold Virus?

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

Just the other day I was commenting about trying not to get discouraged about being knocked down by a bad cold. Today it has struck me that God knew just what was happening to me. He know that I would need something to make me stay home and not go 3 hours away to my daughter's in Chicago. There are very few things that would keep me away from my precious grandsons and my DD and SIL. But God knew that my DH would run into an urgent medical situation with his gall bladder, and would need me here. The other amazing thing is that I worked all day yesterday, and thought I would probably make my health situation worse. But in the evening and today I feel improved and on the mend. I don't "need" to have this cold any more to make me stay home. God works in amazing ways! And I'm very sure that he'll allow me to visit my Chicago family soon - maybe there is a time coming up when they'll be needing me more than they do this week. God is never surprised.

Just want to say thank you for the encouragement to my SparkFriends who reply on my blog, SparkPage, and forums - there isn't always time to do it individually. Ena

    Congratulations on being a new Grandma!! I am a busy Gramma also. I know what it is to have a new baby that is mine and understand how hard it must've been for you to decline on caring for that little precious new person.

    Praise God that he knows what our days hold. He knew to keep you grounded at home for your dh sake. That reminds me of how he keeps us from going on the wrong road to keep us from an accident. .. and even how having that accident can lead us into places we wouldn't go otherwise.. Praise the Lord for being in my life and guiding into all those places He wants me to go.

    I am excited about this new Bible Study. The book has not come yet and here it is the 8th. I am going up to my daugters Thurs through Monday so I will try and acces the study there. What verses do we memorize?

    Take care now and Praise God in it all!!
