On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Oh, What a Night!

Our daughter-in-law is employed with the school district where the children attend school. Friday was Colonial Day and the fifth graders did all kinds of things the colonists did when they came to America - even down to making candles. We were all set to have a little slumber party at our house with the kids, so on Friday afternoon we went over to pick them up. When Amy drove up and I saw her with this little head covering, I thought she looked a little Amish!


My hat's off to you teachers!

Kate showed Grandpa and me how she
writes and illustrates stories on the computer. 

Kate was invited to her first slumber party with her soccer team, so the one we had planned with her and Jack didn't happen that night. But, Jack came over and we had a fun evening. 

Just as everybody was settling in for a good night's sleep, I had to get up and retrieve something and whoops! ran right into the trampoline with my left shin and right foot. So, just as my left toes have finally healed up, my right toes are now swelling! 

He looked just fine as I tucked him in.

At 3:30 Saturday morning, Jack came running to me crying that his throat was hurting and he was sick. After making a trip with him to hover over the toilet for a bit, I went back to bed with him. Poor little guy was shaking and coughing and running a fever. I thought he might go back to sleep, but he then got sick all over the bed. So sad for that sweet little guy. I carried him to the sofa and held him as he slept for a couple of hours and then decided I needed to take him home. 

We carried a bucket in the car for him (just in case) during the drive to his house and, about halfway there, a warning came on that the tires were low. Dear Lord, oh no! Is there a Discount Tire anywhere around here? Just as I prayed that, I glanced to the side and there was a Discount Tire! As I prayed again to find a way to get to it, I then noticed a Just Brakes and stopped for help. So nice! Those guys were happy to help us out. Thank You, Father. 

Well, sad to say, when we made it to their house, Kate was already home in bed. As it turned out, she had to leave her slumber party due to the very same problem Jack was having. Poor Mama is going to be nursing those sweet kids for several days.

  1. Oh my, when it rains, it pours. Poor kids! My low-tire light came on this morning. I'm hoping to make it home where Joe can check it out. The tires don't look low (or flat). Fingers crossed. Glad you were where you could get some help fast!

  4. Gracious, you did have an eventful night and morning. I hate to see my grand babies not feel well. Do hope your toes are better by now. It's boot weather and you don't need painful feet. God is so faithful, isn't He. I call these moments His little hugs. Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Well I am a little behind so sure hope everyone is doing better now, and you and hubby didn't pick up the bug too. I just hate it when little ones are sick. How good is God answering that prayer right away about your tires? Soo wonderful. Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one, and all is back to normal as we enter into this season of Christmas. Blessings to you!
