|down the road on Friday night, a store owner in preparation for “Festival of Lights”|
So it is the first night in a while that Diwali festival music is not spiraling thru sound waves of our house
Nor is their a marriage tent set up right outside playing dance music way past my bed time
Yet, here I am, awake.
And for some reason, I do not think it is to pray at this very moment.
I do believe I am supposed to share;)
It takes effort to sign on to the blog and write a post
It is much easier to just share quickly on FB
It is actually easiest of all to NOT SHARE
It is certainly easy to walk alone and leave you all in the dark
And actually, my husband, faithful, has shared that I often times do not share prayer needs enough
And it is true
It is mainly bc I do not want to be a burden
But who am I fooling?
It is the Father of Lights
Who spun the earth into MOTION
The Word who became FLESH to dwell among us
He is the One who authored the story of prayer
He sketched it into being
He set up the channels of mercy for our meek voices to be heard on High
And He tells us to “not give up meeting together”
He tells us to “pray without ceasing”
He weaves us together
He pieces us together into a group of believers that He calls His very BODY
And then He asks us to work together and bear one another’s burdens
Yet I hold back as a vain attempt of “not being a burden”
Then I go and write this post
About breaking bread
And I forget a key word throughout that post
We are to break the Bread of Life
We are to drink the Wine of Him
We are to be on our knees with our face to the rising sun
“Oh Lord, have mercy on me”
Forgive me for feeling shame at asking prayer for my dear son
Forgive me for thinking my dear friends and family do not want to be a part of our daily journey
So here it goes;)
Maybe it even sounds like everything is falling apart
Actually, it is not
Life has been so very beautiful
Both boys are sleeping and thriving
All is really quite well.
But Adam has had a fever for the past 48 hours
So I just want to ask you to pray for it to end?
Would you mind?
It is ironic, bc we have been boasting all week in how Adam has been sooo healthy the past few months
|This was taken tonight, in the midst of sickness…oh adam…you make it look so easy!|
Doctor thinks it is viral
Nothing else besides a fever
He is clearly active and alert (hence photo above)
No clinical indication of malaria or dengue (Dengue fever has been huge this year in India)
But, tomorrow, if the fever hasnt settled
They will do blood tests to narrow down other possibilities, see if antibiotics are needed, do a blood sample for crazy causes of fever, etc.
So, that is all;)
Can we break bread and drink wine and get down on our knees?
Pray for the fever to be smited and for Adam to be all well;)
Thanks loved ones.
And here are some pictures from the week:)
|I guess they aren’t called “human bars”, huh? 😉 Pardon the pun, monkey bars. Saw this on our walk this morning around the back side of our house at the playground|
|“Fly you FOOLS” is an appropriate caption. And I think it is clear he didnt like his photo being taken;)|
