I was praying mostly, as I went to and fro in the house. Laundry, bags, and disinfectant would be teaming up with me for the next day or so.
I hate to see any of my kids ill and it’s like the desire to do other things vanishes as I sit on my knees near her beside, just looking at her – whispering more prayers to Jesus.
We were out of medicine, wipes and a few other things. I had planned on picking them up at the store tomorrow but now that my hot, pale and weak three year old was getting sick everywhere on her bed, I just put the thought of errands out of my head.
I cleaned her all up and remade her bed. Repeat x3.
I posted to my social media for people to pray for her as well. No sooner had I shared, a sister in Christ was calling me and asked if I needed anything because they were actually coming back from a concert. (By this time it was roughly midnight)
I found myself saying out loud, “God you are taking care of me!” – Click To Tweet
Some of you may know, that my husband is a truck driver so he is away more than he is home. It makes things like: a quick run to the store, without kids – or any other task, a little more complicated than if he were here.
She kindly told me to text her a list of everything I needed.
She humbly showed up at my house around 12:20AM with Ginger Ale, meds and wipes.
We talked for a bit, more I than her for my lack of adult conversation lately I suppose.
It’s funny when I haven’t been out of the house for a week, how I take on the characteristics of a shaken up Dr.Pepper. In a good way. If you can imagine that.
We had just said our goodbyes and hugged, I closed the door and took a deep breath in. My Lord had done it again.
God cares for us each day, but frequently bestows a unique tenderness in times of helplessness. –Click To Tweet
I turned to put the much needed items away when I heard her cries from down the hall. The baby wipes were here just in time.
I shared this because it is just another example of God taking care of us. Right on time.
He has done this throughout our lives and marriage, but now I am more faithfully recording His mighty acts. I want to remember them – in case my brain ever decides it’s going to try and forget.
I wrote most of this around 2am, because my baby girl was up and down a lot. As I finish this, she is back to sleep and in mommy’s spot. I am beside her, chair pulled up close. I love watching her sleep soundly.
Lord you are so good, so faithful – even when we fall so short. You provided late last night when I wasn’t even expecting anything, at least right then. I knew you would take care of us, but you always seem to surprise me. Thank you for sending someone to show your love and concern for us. I pray you bless them. I pray that you give me more love, obedience and creativity to go a step further and be the hands and feet of Jesus.
