Happy Resurrection Day

What a whirlwind of a weekend. The best part of the weekend is that Our God is ALIVE and we get to share this news with our kids. Thursday, Joel called me at 5, which is when he gets off of work.  He told me that his car wouldn’t start. Ok a little bit of bad timing since we are saving up to buy a van.  So I prayed that God would provide for us the money to fix Joel’s car.

He had Good Friday off so we decided to try to figure out what was wrong with our hot water heater. It turns out the hot water heater was dying. So we went out looking for the part to fix it. When you buy a house that is now 14 years old your hot water heater will eventually give out. So we needed to replace the hot water heater. Joel worked very hard this weekend to get us hot water.

Friday night Clay was awake almost the entire night crying, crying, crying. We were super tired going into Saturday and we spent some time with our small group to then come home and finish hot water heater stuff. Then to go spend time with our good friends Saturday night. We came home Saturday night and went to bed only to be woken up by more crying, crying, crying from our little wild man.

Sunday I worked all 3 services in our children’s ministry, but I got to go to the service where our pastor shared the death, and the resurrection of our ALIVE SAVIOR. Death defeated death what a great testimony of our God. We came home after 3rd service with our little guy who continued to cry, cry, cry.

I decided to call our pediatrician to ask what in the world to do for him. I took him to Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati. After a long, tiring 4 hours they told me he had double ear infections and one of his ear drums was close to bursting. He hadn’t eaten or drank anything for a little over 12 hours so after working hard trying to get him to drink something we got to come home.

So now I am gazing on the fact that my hope is built on nothing less than a God who is ALIVE and helping us through these hard times.
