If you read yesterday’s post, you know the last few days were full of emotions. I went to bed feeling beat down by life. But thankfully today was a new day and surprisingly, my attitude was completely different. I’m guessing I have some of you out there to thank because I can tell I’m being prayed over.
So today we just rested and it felt so good. Bennett has been fever free all day…woohoo! He has a little pep in his step and we are continuing to pray for quick healing over this RSV junk.
Another great highlight of the day…we picked up a rental car this afternoon and actually left the St Jude campus for some dinner. Ain’t she a beauty?
And here are the boys taking a quick nap as we hunted for the nearest Target…
But I tell you what, we have been BLOWN AWAY by the kindness of others. That wonderful rental car was paid for by three friends I went to high school with.
And this devotional that is giving me hope daily, is from another sweet friend.
And this stroller is being sent to us from Amazon by my bestest friend because she knew we just needed one.
People hanging my baby’s picture up on their walls so they remember to pray.
And how about making a sign too and texting it to me the day we headed here.
And the list goes on and on. People wanting to drive here just to see us, people calling that we don’t know just to pray for us, coffee gift cards to make sure we are juiced up for the day, encouraging books to read, a blanket made for my baby, lavender smelling soap so the shower is even more relaxing, plane tickets for my kids to fly here soon (I miss them like crazy!), bible verses being text to my phone daily.
Yes, I’m bragging on how awesome my friends are. I seriously can’t contain my gratitude. And to think last week before we knew all of this, I had a thought of “I’m feeling lonely.” Well not anymore!
So tonight I go to bed encouraged and reminded that my God helps me when I need it. And He has used you to do that! Please please don’t stop loving on us. It can truly make a bad day end a little better.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13)
