Our family has been sick over the last few weeks. Some worse than others, but nobody escaped. We have watched a lot of movies and slept more hours than we were awake it seems. One of the best gifts has been seeing how much people genuinely care and want to serve us. People have plenty on their plates, but want to help and it means so much. Another gift has been resting and able to do nothing but trust the Lord. Resting is trusting and that is a good thing. Such a wonderful break from the normal, self-sufficient temptation or lie that we need to be busy. Sometimes that is physically impossible and for that I am thankful.
