“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” Ephesians 6:10 (NIV)
“Your arm is endowed with power; your hand is strong, your right hand exalted.” Psalm 89:13 (NIV)
When you’re a mom you can’t take sick days. I have gotten sick one other time since Eli was born, however this is the first time that both Eli and I have been sick at the same time. Thankfully I think that we are on the tail end of it. I have managed to rest when he is sleeping which has helped me to get better faster. One thing is true of kids… they may be sick, but they still keep you busy. He has crawled through the house despite his cold that he has. I am just thankfully that we both did not have anything that would last longer than it has. I started praying for me to get better as soon as I started to feel a little off and then I started praying for Eli as soon as I noticed that he was coming down with it as well. Even having something as little as a cold can really throw you off and make you feel just yucky. But, the day has to continue despite the runny nose and cough. I found myself praying a lot the last few days. I was praying that God would keep my husband from getting the cold and for him to continue to heal Eli and I, not to mention the prayers for us both to be able to get the rest we need to be able to get better. God is always so faithful! Yesterday Eli took really good naps and last night he slept great, which allowed for me to sleep well too! I think that is why we are getting better so fast. The common cold may leave me feeling yucky, but my God is bigger than that cold!
