Daniel is sick. Jack is trying to catch it. It’s been a long couple of days with a lot of other things getting neglected. I was just washing the MOUNTAIN of dirty dishes in my kitchen and praying for perspective. God graciously reminded me that I will only be given a certain number of days to care for my children in sickness. It can be a difficult time, but it is a time to love and serve my sons that will end one day, and when they look back on their childhoods, I want for them to remember Christ’s love shown through their parents in times of sickness as well as times of wellness.  A re-adjusted perspective helps me to serve and comfort with a loving motive, not just because someone has to do it.
