We're in the thick of Winter here in the Midwest!
Doesn't it seem that around every corner our friends & co-workers are falling prey to illness?! My daughter had an appointment with the pediatric neurologist last week (migraines) and the nurses separated the waiting room - healthy kids on one side - sick kids on the other. We've had our share of coughs and colds at our house, even influenza. A month or so ago, I couldn't seem to get one kid better before another one was coming down with something.
The Lord reminded me recently of that verse in Isaiah 53 - "...by His stripes we are healed." I know that it's referring more to spiritual healing and believe me, I fervently pray for spiritual healing in my children, in myself. But lately I've also been praying those words for physical healings, for financial healings, for relational healings.
And God is faithful.
I am delighted to tell you that after 4 years of unemployment, odd-jobs, and part time work, Steve is back to full time employment!! It's not in his field. It's not what we would've chosen as a career change 4 years ago. It's not glamorous.
But oh is it beautiful!
