What's a denim to do?

I wrote my last post about Renaming. I had canceled Speech therapy because J-man had run a fever on Sunday. Tuesday, I felt crummy.

What does a gal do when she's had a really great object less and then gets sick? Ack.
The only thing you can do.


Well, not too much because it makes you cough and that hurts.

The entire laundry pile is not feeling well. That's the fact of the matter.
The truth of the matter is - the entire Denim family is healed in Jesus' name.

I was laying in bed the other night, after taking cough medicine and just had songs arise from my heart - worship for the King. I just loved God even in the midst of it all...and that's what it's all about.

Now if I can keep that object lesson, I'll be doing good.
Until then, I'm passing the tissues around.

hope you all are feeling better.

I gotta remember your difference between the fact of the matter & the truth of the matter.

And, BTW, I *love* reading your comments. I am always happy when my inbox shows "Comfy Denim has posted..."

Thank you for sharing on the thread for my friend. I am waiting awhile to kind of process the comments that post gets.

I LOVE your post about renaming. I love the way you're responding to this sickness too. Doesn't Jesus repeat over & over, in so many different ways and parables to speak of those things that are not yet as if they are? God bless you and your family. You're a great object lesson to us.

Keep praying and passing!

Hope you all feel better soon ;-)

As for 'leveling up'~ I was playing Runescape. It's the only online game that works well over satellite.

I'm so sorry you guys are sick! We've had something traveling through our home for over a month now. I'm praying you are all up and at 'em in no time! Drink lots of fluids, boil some ginger root in a big pot and breathe the vapors, and rub Vicks on your feet. These are all the things that have worked for us... but then again.. I did say we were going on a month, didn't I?

It is a rough month for sickness! I hope that you are all feeling better by now. I am a few days behind on this post. You may already do this, but I had great success with that annoying lingering cough at night by stirring honey into warm water and having the kids drink that.

Thank you for your encouragement in the midst of illness. I too have been fighting a sickness and was feeling kind of down and defeated. It was great to read your post.:)
