Humbled

I'm truly humbled as I sit and write this morning! My husband walked into our house last night after work...it was a disaster, supper wasn't started, our kids were doing who knows what downstairs and I was wrapped up in a blanket, sound asleep on the couch. I felt so bad and apologized...he could have been mad if he wanted to, but he looked at me and said, "I don't see a disaster...I see that you're sick and you needed to rest!" Then he asked what we might make for supper and he went to work in the kitchen. Later on last night, we really needed some things from the store so that my life would be a little easier...he stayed and we put our kids to bed earlier than usual and then I went and covered back up on the couch and he went out in the cold weather and conquered the grocery list!

When we went to bed last night, my sweetie said, "Come here and I'll warm you up!" He engulfed me in a huge hug and I just put my head on his shoulder and we prayed together and then fell asleep. Not long after that I thought I was hearing a voice in a dream, because Mr. Cinder was already sound asleep. The voice said, "Come...rest...let me carry you while you rest!" I felt the loving arms of my heavenly Father embrace me and lift me into His arms...I put my head on His shoulder and I let go of everything and just rested and let Him carry me. This morning, I woke up with such a sense of peace and rest...he allowed me a chance to gain some energy, possibly just enough to get through today, but I can feel Him with me and I know it's all manageable.

I'm so humbled and overflowing with love for God, my husband, my family and friends...I am truly blessed! Well, we're now off to see if we can get into the doctor and get everyone checked out...I'm ending with praise and worship song which He put on my heart...I woke up singing these words inside...go to Him if you need to...he's right there waiting!

All Who Are Thirsty
(Brenton Brown, Glenn Robertson)
All who are thirsty
All who are weak
Come to the fountain
Dip your heart in the stream of life
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
In the waves of his mercy
As deep cries out to deep
(we sing)

Come Lord Jesus come (x3)
Holy Spirit come (x3)
As deep cries out to deep (x2)

Thanks you guys...I was able to get us all into a doctor this morning and three of us are on antibiotics. He didn't say for sure what's up, but my symptoms and just the overall feeling of my body are really similiar to this summer when I had bronchitis.

I have to go feed my kids and then hopefully lay down and get some rest...three kids in a doctor's office for over an hour tends to be exhausting when you're not feeling great yourself!

Blessings to you both :)

Just lean on Him for rest and restoration.

You are blessed to have a husband that is so good. However, most of the time, women that have good husbands are good wifes. Rejoice in your family.
