Please, Lord, Gimme a Break.

Dear God-
This mommy needs a break. I am sleepy. I am cranky. I am just plain ol' done.

Lord, I know that you give us trials in order to teach lessons or to make us stronger. So, I am assuming that now you have me sick for this same reason. Please Lord, take the

vomiting away and allow mommy to be strong enough for her boys today. (yes, my friends, you have read that right. I was up last night vomiting and other fun things... AH!) Thank you for allowing that to stop, and I just pray that it was something I ate and that I will be well today.

Matthew's fever is still pretty high. He is showing no other symptoms, besides the crying. Thank you, Lord, for medicine and helping him rest comfortably. Lord, please help him feel well soon, so that we can enjoy our last couple of days here.

Thank you Lord, for calming Adam's heart. He's been doing much better and is at least TRYING to listen. He is two, and I realize what comes with that, so thank you for allowing him to be mindful and respectful to myself and daddy.

Lastly, Lord, I just pray for a safe trip everywhere we go, in the city and then on the way home.


I am going to go back to laying down, for a little bit. The kids are still sleeping, so I am going to take that as a direct sign. sigh.

Dear Father,
I agree in prayer with my dear daughter Brittany. I ask for Your healing hand to improve her physical condition and that of Matthew. I pray that Your Spirit will put into her mind to do that which would help each of the two of them the best. Thank You for settling Adam. Keep all 4 of them safe and bring them home speedily.
We praise You that You have heard and will answer this prayer.
In Jesus all-powerful name I ask,
AMEN

Hi there, girl!!! I hope you are feeling better! It is so hard for us moms to take care of our little ones when we don't feel well ourselves! I will keep you all in my prayers! Hang in there!!! :))

Kathryn said...

I'm praying for you too!

Sorry to hear that you are still sick. I was sick a couple weeks ago, and I literally could not stand up without vomiting. It was awful. My kids survived that day on what they could forage from the fridge, and I felt like a horrible mother. But they are resilient, and it will eventually end.

tricki_nicki said...

Oh, you sound horrible. Sending you big, big hugs and get well wishes!

Angie said...

So, not the most ideal vacation/trip exactly, but at least you will be able to look back and laugh on this some day. I pray you find health, rest and good times in the remainder of your stay.

KEEP BELIEVING

My Goodness said...

Bless your little heart. I hope you have recovered and are able to function with those babies. I am so sorry that you've had such a rough trip. Get some rest when you can...

It doesn't have to end as the 'worst trip ever'.

kim said...

Oh, poor girl! I sent up a small prayer on your behalf and trust you'll be feeling better soon!

Amy said...

You poor thing! Why do kids always want to get sick when they're not home!

Super Kristen said...

I so admire all my friends who are moms! Your kids are so lucky to have someone who cares about and loves them as much as you do!

I will remember to pray for you!
