Bad Weather & Under the Weather
I'm including these two fun pictures taken when we weren't having bad weather, and we weren't "under the weather". I don't like to be overly negative, and I know how blessed we are!! :)
That said, I just want to say, we have been feeling a little poorly this week. Specifically, Isaac and Savannah have had a fever, and now have developed a sore throat and some congestion. Isaac got it first, and I didn't realize it was a virus. Yes, we did go and get ice cream while he had a low fever. Later Thursday night Savannah came down with it, and last night the hoarse cough with congestion started. Needless to say, long night! We have been doing lots of cuddling and watching "Jungle Book".
As everyone in Mississippi knows, we have been having bad weather lately. My heart goes out to the people that lost loved ones in Yazoo City, and Choctaw County last weekend! We spent last Saturday afternoon in the hallway with tornado alarms going off (several times). It is both a blessing and a curse to live right by the volunteer fire department, and hear the siren go off so loud! It is hard to keep 2 small children calm when the alarm goes off! But, needless to say we were (and are) very blessed, and didn't have a tornado touch down close to us! Unfortunately, we are having bad weather again today, with a chance of tornadoes. I hope and pray that it isn't a repeat of last weekend! Anyway, keep Mississippi in your prayers! Also, please pray for those families that lost loved ones last week!
"For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." ~Romans 5:6-8
