This picture COULD have been taken today as far as Kevin is concerned. He is doing great and you would never know he had a procedure done yesterday! Thank you Jesus!
No more throw up in the Ferrill home today. Thank you Jesus!
I find myself really wanting to get-away with the family...just some away time. Away from responsibilities. Away from stressful situations. Away from life, really. I tend to have that reaction a lot. I call it the "fight or flight". Sometimes the Lord just wants to teach me through everyday life, and so I am learning to be content right where I am. (and yes, having a happy heart amidst throw up! ;)
Don't get me wrong, I love HOME. Love it!
But to be honest, the past few weeks have been really hard. Church yucky stuff. Illness in our extended family. Death in our church family. And now the news that Kevin's lung pressures are not what we hoped.
Thankfully we have Jesus. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He holds our lives in His hands! He watches over our comings and goings. He turns our weeping into joy. He REALLY does!
I know the Lord will provide our family some away time in HIS time. And it will be VERY good!
In the meantime, when life gets tough, we do what Oswald Chambers says in "My Utmost For His Highest": "Do the next thing"
Just do the next thing! For me, that would be bathing kids. What is YOUR next thing? ;)
