Head Cold

I think I was "well" for about 2 days before I began to come down with my present illness - a head cold. I feel like I have cement in my head and behind my eyes. I feel dragged out and tired all the time, despite massive doses of Emergen-C with zinc and elderberry. I called in to work sick last Thursday and went home after 3 hours of work on Friday. I sure hope I feel more peppy tomorrow. At least I sound sick, so there won't be any doubt from co-workers. These days, in this bad economy, jobs are wonderful things to have - and at my age, I am anxious about the possible loss of my job in the coming months.

Of course, I rest in the faith that the Lord will take care of my husband and I no matter what. Times may get very bad, but yet He promises to sustain us. I'd be lying if I said that I have no dread of hard times - I do.

But enough of that for now. Tonight I will relax in what my Lord has provided now. A warm home, a comfortable home - even with a head cold, especially with a head cold. A loving husband, a job that I still have and a paycheck I still can look forward to for the near future.

But most of all, my Savior has provided Himself for me. He has called His followers, "little flock" (Luke 12:32 - ESV). Like my sister says, "that's ME!!"
