Did I know that there was a possibility
that I would get the stomach flu
from a precious little 4 month old?
but I did it anyway
when I got the call from my daughter
about her daughter who was sick
and spent the day at her house.
It was heart wrenching to watch a little baby
experience the flu,
because she has no clue what was going on.
The flu takes over your body~
to prove to you that you are not in control.
You can't do anything about it,
but wait it through~
and just waiting
for it to go away.
Well it got me bad~
and it takes a lot to get this woman down.
It is one of those commercial breaks in life~
not planned by me.
A reminder again that
I am not in control of some things.
A life interruption~
when you have to go with the flow,
which has been a really good lesson for me.
"TO BE STILL"
because I have no choice.
A forced stop.
Now this is minor in the big book of life,
but oh how it was hard not to focus on how horrible I felt
so instead I did the
and recited in my head
"YOU will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on YOU, Because he trusts in YOU." (Isaiah 26:3)
and you know what
even in the minor things of life
like the stomach flu.
I am still not sure how I feel right now
as I don't want to think about it~
THANK YOU GOD
for reminding me again
that I am not in control
and to embrace every moment when you are feeling good~
because moments will come when you are not feeling so good.
I am still a wee bit wonky right now
but wide awake
and just so thankful that I don't feel as bad as I did yesterday.
BE STILL my friends
and stay away from me.
