When a trial hits, their are so many emotions running through your body.
When baby was recently ill, I was holding him in my arms rocking back and forth with my cast on foot, while holding the phone with the doctors office. I knew he wasn't doing good, I knew when I looked down and he was foaming at the mouth. I was very emotional, but couldn't show it to the other children. I wanted to scream inside, I was coming unglued, and I still had to drop off the children at grandma's house. The doctor insisted that he stated that he would be alright and to just hurry into the office where he could be put on oxygen first before going to the hospital. Part of me just wanted to call 911, part of me just wanted to hide in a corner and let someone else deal with it.
The doctor insisted that he stay on the phone with me for the next 10 minutes till I got to his office.. I was ok with that.. But first I had to do something....
I politely told the doctor that he had to sit through our little family prayer, I knelt down with the 2 other little ones and said a prayer. At that time I felt comforted, I felt the peace I needed inside me to carry me through this.
I calmly took the children to grandmas. You see, this is the first time I have ever talked to this doctor, first time he will be seeing someone in my family. The whole while on the phone he told me to talk about Kono from the time he was born until now. This is who I needed, this doctor, and now a friend.
As soon as I pulled up, he had a crew with the oxygen, and strapped it on him as we entered the office, and from the phone call he didn't need to waste time asking questions, he already knew.
He did a quick look over, and then they took him to the hospital.(which is next door)
Before they asked questions they started working on him, tests, and all. Then I could admit him.
At first they thought it was the swine flue. A very bad case of the swine flu. I about died. I had read earlier that day, that a poor healthy as a bean 11 year old boy was killed within 48 hours of catching it, and since I was only a day and he already had such a bad case of pneumonia, they thought for sure it was it. I came unglued, how could this happen to us? I prayed again, please give me peace,and give the doctors knowledge.. Thankfully it wasn't a bad case of the swine flu, and thankfully he is 100 percent healthy again.
We will never know what happened, but we do know that our Father in Heaven doesn't give us anything we can't handle.. yes, I said it.. You can handle your own trials..
Pray, pray all the time, not just during a trial,
You will find that you have peace in your soul for when the next trial and tribulation comes your way..
I know I will try harder to pray more often for peace in myself, and my home.
I know that we are on this earth at this time for a reason. We are strong, and we need our children to learn through example, we need to pray more in open with them to show them the way.
Have a wonderful Sunday, whether you are at church, or just enjoying the ones you love.
