Our sweet Laine developed reflux around 3 weeks, so the consistent sound in our house has been her painful cry for the past few weeks. To be a mom is to ache sometimes, huh!? Two days ago I developed mastitis and came down with flu like symptoms. Oh, how I wish I could say that I have welcomed both of these with joy, but there's probably been more frustration in my heart. Life is a constant journey though! Not that I always like it, but I will say that I'm desperate for God to rescue me from me in all things.
I can now say that I'm thankful for this sickness because it has made me rest and focus once again on what's most important...the Gospel and my moment by moment need for it!
I long for the attitude of my heart to be able to say with Mary..."Here I am your servant, do with me whatever you choose!" I praise God that He promises that we will be made complete bearing His image, the image of our holy, good, and delightful Savior! And as a result we are more like Him today than yesterday, and even more so in two days and on and on!
Lily was so precious the other day. When we were in the car, I asked her where Jesus was. She said, "In the sky!" I then told her that He was everywhere! She then said, "Mommy, I know, He never lets us go!" Thank you Lord for speaking through my daughter, being ever present in every season, and never letting me go!
