Do you ever feel this way? Like your world is getting a little upside down & twisted up? Some times that is how I feel. Maybe even a little right now. My family & I have been sick this past week. Head cold mostly. It turned into pneumonia for my oldest. He isn't happy about that. No baseball. So far my middle child hasn't been touched by it. My 4 yr old has been a little miserable but taking it very well. Hubby has sinus problems so this is just exasperating the original problem. Through all this there are so many things to be thankful for really. The ability to go to the store & get medicine. We are all healthy enough that our bodies are fighting this very well. We have a comfortable house to get well in where are beds are comfy and our pillows are very soft :-)
We are also awaiting a phone call saying that Great Grandma (my grandmother) has gone to meet Jesus. She is ready & waiting. She has had a full life & is a wonderful woman. I'm sad for us but happy for her. She has been sick for a little while now and misses my Grandpa terribly. She is the last of her generation in my family. She will be missed for sure.
I just got a call about a special couple that our family has been friends with for a long time (close enough we call them Aunt & Uncle) and they are both battling their own forms of cancer. Gosh, they seem so young to me too! Only in their 60's. They are so full of life.
These things some times cause me to cry out to God and ask WHY?? It makes me remember though that this is not the place for us. Heaven is MY home!! These bodies aren't meant for eternity. Thankfully!! I feel like the more healthy I get the more I fall apart!
My God is so strong & loves me so much. As he does my Grandma & Aunt & Uncle. He knows what we are going through and is there walking along side each of us. He will guide Grandma into Glory and walk with her hand in hand. She will see Grandpa again and will glow like she used to EVEN MORE!!
As I end my post I just want to say this one more thing. Hug your family & friends. Let them know how much you love & care for them. Send them a note (snail mail preferrably) and tell them how special they are. This is such a short time here on earth. Let's make the most of it and share the love that God shares with us unconditionally.
BE BLESSED & HEALTHY
