Well, today is the last day of June! At the end of May hubby and I went on vacation. Right before we left we both came down with a bad cold. Thankfully the Lord gave me the strength of get all the laundry and packing done as well as babysit kids. Our trip was wonderfully blessed as we fully enjoyed our time with family. However, the down side was that we got sicker once we arrived, not sick enough to stay in bed, but just enough to be annoying. By the time we were going home we were feeling improved, but it took another week to get all better. Now at the end of June Mark & I are sick yet again with another annoying bug. Sigh. I guess that is what happens when you have little ones around 5 to 6 days a week.
I usually post at least once a month, but for some reason I did not until now. I can't say why, only that it seems ever since I got back from vacation I've been busy. When we arrived home we were exhausted from our trip and we both crashed the night we got home. The next day we both jumped right back into work. Its like we did not even have time to come up for air. Right now I am looking at a possible 4-day break from kids. I was just telling the Lord that I need a break and then one presents itself. Wow!
Besides babysitting kids and keeping up with housework since coming home, the Lord has me praying. Praying for people who are sick. Shortly after I got home a friend of mine contacted me and asked me to pray for a friend of hers. A woman who took herbal diet pills and nearly died from them. Thankfully, the Lord has healed her and she is back at home, but she was in ICU with all kinds of IVs. Her liver and kidneys were threatening to shut down. Also found out that a friend's husband has pancreatic cancer. He has been suffering and has lost so much weight. He started kemo this week. Another friend has a 21-year old son who has come down with cancer. He has a tumor behind his right sinus cavity and he started kemo last week. He's been really sick and unable to eat since his first kemo. Our next door neighbor is watching a daughter suffer through terminal cancer. Its in her brain & lungs. Then there is my mother, who was diagnosed with a slow growth tumor in her breast.
On top of all that, I try to keep up with what is going on in the world. It is amazing as well as alarming. I have come across these little videos that sort of catalog what is going down and these videos really shed light on what is going on. The videos move me to tears at times, great music to go with them too. So here I will leave you with a link to Prophecy Update Enjoy!
