Winter Continues

Ever had those moments where it seems like your family is never going to all feel healthy again at the same time? Today is one of those days around here. I'm still not 100% since California. Owey is still coughing and cranky. Tali just started coughing yesterday and now has a fever. Josh has been congested for days. Winter in Illinois...

I am just longing for those warm spring days when we can play outside, go for long walks, run at the park, and enjoy fewer colds. Are you with me? All this and we're expecting a big snow storm tonight.

It's just another reminder to me that my joy can't be found in my circumstances, it's got to be found in Christ. These illnesses may linger for weeks and we all ready know that warm weather is still a distant hope. But, Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today, and forever and He is reason enough for me to rejoice today!

  1. Thanks, Katie for modeling this so effectively!

  2. I hear ya! Those plane rides seem like they always bring about some sort of sickness. Keep redirecting those thoughts and I'll do the same...with the Lord's help of course ;-)

  3. I am so with ya Katie! I totally understand your pain of the winter blues!! I want to play outside too! We have all been sick . It must just be a bad winter for illnesses. We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel though. We have all had sinus infections and ear infections...the list goes on! I pray you all feel better quickly!! Send the warm weather Lord!!! :)

  4. I will pray for the Fenska's to get healthy soon!!
