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.
