just some words

well, I was wrong
the illness was not food related
but was a stomach bug
and it hit with
much force
upon four other chilren
including the youngest
I was up with her for most of the night
and early morning
it was not fun and
most certainly not pretty
but after a few hours
of sleep
the four seem better
thankfully this seems
to be a 24 hour bug
and not longer

I am encouraged by
this scripture:
"we are afflicted in every way,
but not crushed; perplexed,
but not despairing;
persecuted, but not forsaken;
struck down, but not destroyed;
always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus,
so that the life of Jesus also may be 
manifested in our body."
II Corinthians 4:8-10
