Silver lining

Sorry I’ve been a bit scarce on the blog these last few days. I’m in the middle of a wicked case of stomach flu or something. I’m on enough medication right now to bang out a few words, but not much more.

I was thinking of Emily’s blog and her Tuesday’s Unwrapped, and naturally came up blank today. I am not thankful for much when it comes to being sick, but then I remembered that this it temporary. Those who are chronically ill, face this day in and day out. God is gracious. I also thought of my husband who took off from work today to take care of me, a friend who kindly carpooled my children around, my kids who offered to make me tea and put their hand on my forehead to soothe me, and my silly little dog who can’t seem to lie close enough to me on the sofa. Again, God is gracious.
Emily, thanks so much for helping me see the silver lining in days that are stormy and cloudy, and reminding me that God is gracious.
