~I will bless the Lord at ALL times!~

Hello, from the Dickinson "hospital". All 3 of our kids came down with some kind of virus this week, and they are still fighting it. My Sarah, who is ill, and who listens to a lot of Bible stories just asked me if it was ok to "CURSE THE DAY I WAS BORN?" I told her no, that I BLESS the day that she was born. =) Besides my normal nausea, I must have some kind of other virus, so can't keep much down. =( I tell you what, I'm in the DEPTHS OF DESPAIR....to quote Anne of Green Gables! =) There is NOTHING that sounds good to eat. My helper, that comes to help me a couple days a week, doesn't know how to cook, and I am NOT in the mood for Colombian food anyways. Normally I like their food, but right now I want some of my Moma's GOOD SOUTHERN home cooking, or at least some good ole USA food! Please pray that I can get better enough to cook for my family, or that God will send me an angel to cook for us. Noah, who has never seen his mother sick like this, and is used to me making good meals and goodies quite often, just asked me if I could PLEASE make some cookies. He said, " I want some cookies with oatmeal and choc.," (no bake cookies.) I told him that I couldn't right now, and he said, "Well, Kimberly can or Sarah, or even I know how to." Bless his heart! Phillip, understandably, is gone a lot with having 2 churches here, and it's hard for 3 children under the age of 9 to run the house and cook decent meals. I never dreamed how desperate I would feel being sick and pregnant and not able to cook, so far away from the USA and my family. I mean if I lived in the USA, most of the time I would have someone close that could come over and cook for me and help me, but if I have any Colombians over to cook, THEY WILL COOK FOOD THAT SOUNDS SO NASTY TO ME RIGHT NOW! Today, my lunch was INSTANT MASHED POTATOES! I'm not trying to complain, I think that if I didn't know that y'all were all praying for us, I would despair. I don't know how long I can keep up feeling sick and not being able to cook for my family and I. We have to eat, but right now we are surviving on quick packaged soups or oatmeal, etc. UGH! Sorry I'm not blogging fun blogs right now, but this is where I'm living, so I'm giving y'all an update. =) I'm VERY happy that I have a precious little baby and that is the reason for my sickness, and that I don't have a terminal disease, like others are having to face. I'm trying to pray for those dear people while I lay in my bed, I cannot imagine how they are suffering. So, Thanks for those prayers, and PLEASE keep them up. I know that God has not forsaken me and our family, and I'm still praising Him in the midst of it all. Thanks for being there for me!

Bless your heart girl! You sound so miserable (but trying to be positive... good for you!). I wish I could come over and help... I really do! (I love to make cookies!) I am praying for you!

Dearest Heather,
I wish I could email you some of my yummy chocolate cupcakes and anything else that sounded good to you. I'd fix the children macaroni and cheese and hot dogs like I did when you came home from Costa Rica in the middle of the night (almost) and they were so hungry. Some quick comfort food at Aunt Nesi's is just what you need - but since that's not possible tonight, we'll just pray that God sends an angel to take care of you or at least make you feel better long enough to cook a big meal so you can have leftovers. I SOOOOOOOO wish I were close to come over and comfort and care for you. Uncle Dan prayed especially for you all tonight. He's a sympathetic pray-er- he's not feeling so well himself since they gave him a flu shot at the hospital today and... I was a little nervous about how it would affect his Parkinson's Disease but it's too late to really do anything about the shot so we'll leave it with God. We love you all SOOOOOOOO much and are praying for you extra hard.
Love,
Aunt Nesi

I don't have any great words of wisdom or advice for you right now. It'll get better, but you already know that even though it's hard to believe right now. I'll be talking to Jesus about you tonight while I'm at work.

Dear Heather,
There is nothing I can say that will make you feel better.....but, we all understand and wish we could help. We are excited about the little one coming and are thinking about how sweet "he or she" will be. Poor Sarah, if she didn't feel so badly it would be funny.

Oh, Heather...my heart is hurting for you, and we are praying for you here in LA (had special prayer at church!)...trusting things will look up eventually, and until then that God will be close to you and your precious family!!!

Janette said...

Keeping you in my prayers and wish I were close to help you out!

Heather,
I am so sorry that you are having such a hard time! Like the other ladies who posted I wish that I could come and cook a big, delicious meal for you and your family! I love that you are drawing encouragement from Psalms 31! That is my all-time favorite verse and is repeated much during good and bad times! I will never forget learning the verse and attitude behind it from Dr. Brown's class at GBS! Remember that 'this too shall pass!' ;o) Keep your positive outlook and hang in there! We are all pulling and praying for you!

I wish so bad that I could help you with this. It will end eventually, but I know that doesn't help with right now. I was sick the whole time with Caden...BUT...I wasn't in another country!!! I wish I could get some of your Mama's good food and send it to you. I will be asking Jesus to help you.

Love and prayers...Missy

I'm praying for that angel to come and bless your family. I will be lifting you before the Lord tonight.

Heather,
I am so so sorry that you are so sick! I can sympathize a little with you. I was hoping my morning sickness would be gone by now, but I think it is here to stay for a few more months. We love you all and are praying for you.
Love,sarah

Heather, What needs to be said, that hasn't already been said. I pray that, that angel will come along for you soon. I am getting ready to send your mother the patterns soon. I bet your mother is in the same boat as I am in right now. Knowing that your daughter is needing help but can't be there. I know that well. I pray that the rest of the family also is getting to feel better too. "May God continually touch each of you right now". In Jesus Name! Love you and are praying for you.
