All last week I was feeling overwhelmed with this working nights... trying my best to stay positive but it is hard to stay awake all night on a regular basis. At a point it feels like your body just wants to shut down, you feel terrible. And my mom-in-law who has faithfully been helping me with Sophia in the mornings has now started working. So I have been stressing about who will help with her, how I will sleep, wondering where is God in all this?
And this morning I had a so sweet package from my mom (now I'm tearing up)... she sent me a great book about enduring tough times, and a wonderful card. Mom, I love you. That was just perfect and so encouraging. I had not known really what to read -- but now I have a book to focus on for a quiet time.
So I was getting ready to go into Target-- and trying to figure out who would help with Sophia since I can't really pay someone or that would wipe out everything I made... So I realized I should just pray and ask. I prayed ... God, would you provide help for me. I know you are in the little details, and I need help with Sophia. I had texted my friend Erica earlier and while we were in the store she texted me back stepping right in to help me! She is going to drive to my house and take both kids... drop her boys and Luke to school, then watch Sophia while I sleep and bring her back in the afternoon. WOW! I can't express how much that helps me! Erica is that type of friend that will be there the extra mile and never even think twice about it. I love you Erica!
Thank you God for encouraging my heart today.
