Joyful. Patient. Faithful.
I have a chalkboard in my kitchen that sits on an easel. Oftentimes it is covered with papers, coupons, lists, and what not. Sometimes I write a verse or a quote I like on it. The other day, I wrote this verse down. God knew I was going to need it. I was excited about the new school year for the boys. I was looking forward to a few hours of peace and quiet. I was gearing up for homework, fall sports, emails from teachers, and all the stuff that goes with a new school year.
Then Tuesday night, my youngest started throwing up. A lot. And it didn't stop. So 5 days, one doctor's appointment, and 2 ER visits later, we are at Riley Children's Hospital waiting out a bowel obstruction. Hoping he will start moving things on his own. Time will tell. In the meantime, I am going to practice what this verse says as best as I can.
