Sick kids...Peace, Contentment and Patience--Oh My!


Well my weekend off was unexpectedly hindered by a sick baby. Baby Girl woke up with fever, Saturday morning. I treated it, then Boog and I took off to his friends birthday party. He had a blast with his friends, we spent a few hours there playing and visiting. Baby girl stayed sick and the next day I took her to a clinic where they said she had a infected throat. All was fine as long as she kept drinking. That night she started with a ulcer like sore on her tongue. When we woke up the next morning she had a few more on her lips, so off to the doctor again. Well another doctor bill later, we are told it will run its course. AAAHHH!!! I hate spending money to be told something I already knew. When will I learn to just wait it out a little longer?? Anyhoo, Baby Girl started feeling better by Tuesday then guess who gets sick, yep, you guessed it Boog. He ran high fever for about 24 hours, then was totally fine. Not really sure if they had the same thing, or if Boog's was just milder. It really sucks that a good friend of mine is in this week with her kids from Utah visiting and we cannot get together. We hope to get some time in tomorrow, before they leave on Saturday morning.

As for the rest of my post, I am just really dealing with being content and learning to have patience. I am ready to move on in a certain area of our lives and Gus is waiting. I am submiting to him, but it is really hard. I desire to follow God's authority and headship in this and all areas of my life, but being patient sure is hard. I know the desires God has set in my heart and that He will fullfill them in His good timing. I also know that God has placed Gus as my head and that I trust his decsions. So, I am praying for patience and peace during this time, that I may become a nobel wife who loves and fears the Lord.

Proverbs 31: 10-12, 26-30

10 [c] A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.

11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.

12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:

29 "Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all."

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

I too have to workon patience and contentment. Your post always seem like I could have written them myself.

I hope you get to see your friend soon and baby girl feels better. Sick kids are the worst to deal with. BTW, I too run to the doctor rather than waiting it out.

It is good to know that I am not the only one dealing with these things. I am also glad I am not the only one who runs to the doctor :)

Are you kidding?! Everyone deals with patience, I believe. At least everyone I know does. Its so rewarding when you are patient, though. I mean, His time is so perfect. I cannot tell you how many times I was overly anxious and then, when He did move, I thought--wow, that's exactly the perfect time! Sorry to hear of all the sickness.
