Sunday a.m. perspective

OK, gang...this was our 1st week of school!!
We didn't have a strong start but I still trust that it'll be a fabulous year anyways. Our 7th grader almost got rushed to the hospital with 105.7 fever!! He asked me to annoint him with my hyssop oil and asked for his devotional so he could pour his precious heart out to the Lord for healing. Also, he just handed me money to put in the offering plate for him. WOW!! that's a biggie. As soon as my grandma's and Facebook buddies started praying for him his temperature went down 4 solid points to a safer 101 and we didn't have to go to the hospital.Lil' fella came home early from the 1st day and didn't make it back until Friday when we felt that his fever had been down for 24 hrs. He was a bit miserable with headache and fever and cough.
As you can see I nursed them back to their feet on the couch. You know what...usually I'd let this get me down and I'd be mad and saying, "why me...why us?" to the Lord. This time, I annointed them with hyssop oil...sang praise music around them, played praise music around them, danced around them to the Lord, prayed blessings and promises over them. I rebuked the illness and claimed that these precious boys belong to the Lord and are sacred unto him alone. We made it thru and I trust this next week will be better. PTL!

Pray without ceasing

  2. Happy Sunday Denise..
    Sorry to hear about your son not feeling well. Can you believe my 7th grader also came home from school with a 103 fever so I had to go and pick her up. Not a great way to start the school year off, but she is feeling better now. I understand about the award free tag. I just leave it up to each of my friends if they want to recieve the Bloggy hugz or not.

  3. I remember those days. I home-schooled one of my children for a few years and frankly was so glad for the respite from constant illness that he had had previous to that time.

  5. Many posts are about "prayers" today, including mine. I think the Lord is telling us something here...TO REALLY PRAY! Harder than we have...Praying that your sons are up on their feet at this time. I'm glad you chose to rejoice instead of be overwhelmed. The beauty of joy that comes from knowing the good God! That we can rejoice no matter what trials we are facing. God bless you.
