  1. I’m reminded of Elisabeth Elliot’s filter for a servant heart: If you want to know if you have a servant’s heart, pay attention to how you act when someone treats you like a servant.
    We need regular reminders that we are called to a poured out life.
    Always, the hardest part for me is the rearrangement of a schedule to accommodate the sickness.
    Thanks for the flu-season refresher course!

  2. Stephanie, the extra snuggles! That’s one way of the best parts of having the kids be sick. I had to stop what I was doing and just sit and hold my sweet daughters. If just one was sick, I could hold her close and no one minded. That busy, semi distant toddler wanted to be held! What a blessing!

  3. THIS POST IS WONDERFUL BECAUSE I REMEMBER THE WAY MY MOM TOOK CARE OF ME WHEN I WAS SICK. IT MADE ME FEEL BETTER THEN AND ALL THE TIMES OVER THE YEARS THAT THESE MEMORIES HAVE SURFACED. I KNEW THAT I WAS SO VERY LOVED. I TOOK CARE OF MY SON THIS WAY AND HE HAS GOOD MEMORIES OF THE LOVE I SHOWED HIM ALSO.
    I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT AS SHOWING GOD’S LOVE ALSO, SO THANKS FOR SHEDDING THIS LIGHT. IT MAKES MY MEMORIES EVEN MORE SPECIAL!!

  4. I know we can look at News. Say why God are all these thing happing in our world today. With all the bugs in world today. You can hear people say maybe we are getting near the end times. I have not got all the answers to all that is happening in our world today. We as Christians don’t. People that are not saved could ask us today. Where is this God you belive in. Why is letting all this happen. We as Christians don’t have all the answers to all that is happening in our world today. We just have to keep praying. Keep trusting The Promises In The Bible Standing On them No Matter what. It Hard Yes. Especially when the unsaved do ask us why our God we believe in they say letting all this sickness and badness happen in our world. It not Gods doing. We have to I believe that one day God will take it away in his own time. When his son Jesus will be back again to return to Earth. Earth will be the way it should be way was before Adam and Eve first Sinned. I trust Father God for everything in my life. I call God Doctor God. I stand on the promises in his world. I only go the Doctors when Doctor God tell me too. As I know he has sent Doctors to make as well as. God either uses Doctors to make us well or God himself. One promise I stand on alot on Gods that is philippians 4 verse 19. It says: My God Shall Supply All My Needs According To His Riches In Glory According Too Christ Jesus. Meaning God will meet all needs. If I keep looking up to him and trusting him for everything. As his word the Bible says. I love todays reading. Thank you for it. Xxx

  5. Stephanie,

    I know I have a servant’s heart. My schedule & life was changed when my aging dad’s dementia got worse. I quit a good job & cared for him full time. Some days were easy & some hard. One day sitting at lunch with men on either side of table he was having trouble eating. I offered & ended up feeding him. One guy said “you will get jewels in your crown for this.” I’ve been to ERs numerous times with parents & in-laws. Taken people to doctor’s visits. Yes when someone is ill the first thing I want to do is cook a meal for them. Sometimes all I can do is pray. Pray I do. Asking God to heal them in His perfect time. Life isn’t easy down here. Like Jesus we can’t tire of doing good for others. In the end we will get repaid. We will hear the immortal words “Well done thou good & faithful servant.”

    Blessings 🙂

  6. My ex-husband is very sick with some of the nasty germs that are going around right now and as i’m 1,000 miles away from him now I’ve been praying for him from afar. I’ve also emailed him soup recipes and reminding him that before our divorce and my leaving in December, i stocked the pantry with the soup he likes, purchased the hand sanitizer he likes and reminded him of where i put it and that the the over the counter medicine we both took when sick is also stocked up and where it is. I always felt like doing this types of things for him was one way to show my love for him but i’m not sure he realized that or that it meant that to him. He thanked me today for the prayers for his quick recovery and health and he thanks me for the things that i stocked up to help him before i left. Maybe he knows now that those were some of the ways i loved him. I honestly wish i was closer so i could bring him soup and help in some other ways but prayers and friendship from afar will have to be enough.
