On Friday, I founded this little reminder of God’s great love inside of my water bottle. Of all places… Can you believe it… The ice is frozen in the shape of a Heart… Which is a nice reminder that God has the ability to do anything that He wants to do!

Whelp… After work on Friday I was feeling good and looking forward to Labor Day, and the three day weekend, when suddenly that same night I found myself starting to get sick… I was coughing, congested and had a runny nose. So, in the morning I went to Quick Care only to find the office was unusually closed that day…

Persistent to feel better I preceded onward to “Plan B” which involved: Soup, Orange Juice, Lemons-Honey-Tea, Medicine and Apple Sauce…

For all my friends, family members, and anyone else who knows me; their very aware of the fact that I don’t like to be sick. So, on Saturday, feeling extremely unhappy about the situation I decided, “Nope, I’m not going to stay sick!” I got up, cleaned up, and even worked out.

The funny part about my three day extravaganza, is that I had my mind all set to watch movies, eat BBQ, and catch up with some Much-Desired-Extra-Relaxation time but the attacks on my body wouldn’t permit it.

For me, it almost felt like I had to work harder not to feel any worst… 

During the next two days everything seemed opposite… When I tried to sleep, my nose got congested. When I tried to eat, I automatically felt full and after I tried to cool down minutes later I began to sweat.

What was I to do???

Determined not to allow this sickness to rule me, I decided to get out of my slump the best way I know how… So I put on all the Praise & Worship music that I could possibly find and started singing as loud as my congested voice would allowing me too until I could hear my normal voice range again… 

And thank God it worked!

Well today is Monday night and thank God I’m feeling so much better. I’m not coughing as much, or even cold. I even got a chance to enjoy some BBQ… 

Overall, even though I got sick in a silly-sort-of-way I feel like I got more accomplished this weekend then I would have done by following my own plan…

I can’t say that I understand it… But hey, that’s life and God allows things to happen for HIS Purpose.

Believe me, I can trust my God, who is even able to place a “Frozen Heart Shaped” reminder in my water bottle to let me know He is always the one in control…
