So, I'm fairly new to all this, but I find myself always thinking of my next post. Great, this is my second time of posting and I'm already consumed by it. This weekend wasn't all that exciting, but you know you have those little events that happen that normally just don't...
Turns out that my daughter had Strep, no biggie...until she had her panic attack. I didn't know 7 year old's could even do that! But she over heard me speaking to one of my friends, and I said that her tonsils are so swollen, I'm a little afraid of her breathing. Well, she doesn't miss a thing. Next thing I knew, I had a very shaken, pale face, heart beating a mile a minute, getting ready to throw up TRAIN WREAK! At one point, her eyes actually rolled to the back of head like she was going to pass out...YIKES! Not really knowing what to do, I ran her to the bathroom just in case we were going to have a puke episode. When she said she was fine, but she was still trembling, I took her to the couch and held a blanket over her to keep her warm. We prayed and talked, and I reassured her that she was not going to stop breathing. The whole thing for some reason made me a nervous wreak. I never want to see my daughter ever worry about her life, but if anything good is coming out of this, she is really learning how to let Jesus be her comforter. She kept saying as I was holding her "peace be still". She was taught that when she was younger how to handle the storms and the thunder and lightning by saying that phrase. Now, its her security blanket. I find myself saying it alot too when it seems hard to breath, or when the storms come and they seem to linger longer than I like them too. In the past few weeks I have really clung to God's promise that we are to be strong and courageous. Its not easy, but I have a God that I serve that know's my every need before I do. So for right now, that's my security blanket.
As for the rest of the weekend, it was great until our blackout on our block. Somehow a power line caught on fire and all the technicians would tell us was " it could take a few hours"...Gee, thanks. So If you know anything about living in the country it means...NO water, heat, lights etc. The biggie was no water, which means no toilet. Well, let me back up. We were allowed one flush each before we would loose pressure..so as Rob said...Make your visit count when you go! LOL I missed being at church this morning, but sleeping in was WONDERFUL.
Well, I need to turn in. Rob is watching Clint Eastwood...BORING!!! But at least Ill go to sleep : )
