Blessing after Blessing . . . .

I meant to add a nice picture here of a meal that one dear lady from church brought to my home yesterday. However, with Chlobug currently sitting in my lap with a 101 degree fever it is making the post a little difficult to manuever. However, I feel it important to mention. As you know, I prayed for morning sickness - and boy did God answer. It has made functioning a little harder - as my most common place to be is in the bathroom or on the couch. However - the Lord gave me this ailment not just because I asked for it - but I believe it also came to show me His tender mercies in providing those who are a blessing. I must admit - when people offer to help out - I often resist as a form of my ever rigid pride. However, God has shown me that it is ok to rely on those of whom He provides as a comfort and blessing. Just within this week alone I have had two families bring a meal and one other dear friend - old friend, has declared she is coming to clean bathrooms tomorrow! YIKES! My flesh wants to rear up in ugly pride - and say NOOOOO - I can handle it. - However, I have to admit it is so nice and has left me awe-struck.

To those of whom I speak - Thank you.

To my Saviour who continues to teach me inspite of myself - I praise you and am so thankful!

Maybe you have twin girls in there .....you never know? Anyhow, it is good that the Lord often gives blessing to teach us something about ourselves. I, too, struggle with this pride thing and letting people help but I am working on it. Just as all of us don't want others to know that we are real people and have messy houses - it is okay to except help- we all overlook those things especially when friends are in need! Love you.
