too soon

so, i knew that this would happen, and that sooner or later, one of the boys would get sick and i would be over here, and not only unable to do anything about it, but at the mercy of everyone there to keep me updated and to shower love and affection on my behalf (which, i have to add, i have NO doubt of their ability to do. i just want to be the one doing the showering). so, i've been home for just over a week, and golf is sick. i got an email saturday night saying that he was quarantined, and that they were hoping that it wasn't TB, that it was just a really bad case of pneumonia, and today i get more mail saying that he's getting better (thank God) but that now apilak is sick, and he's way more frail. so now two of my boys are sick, and there's literally nothing i can do about it, except worry. it feels like worrying over there would be more productive than worrying over here. worrying there, i could cuddle and hold and joke and make laugh, i would be in the know, i would feel connected and useful. worrying here, i just worry. and pray. and ask others for prayer. so if you all could pray for my boys, they're sickly. i hope to have happier updates soon.

"25Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"
"33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:25-27, 33-34

Amen.

Raych, it was sooo great to see you again the other day! I hope we'll all get to hang out for a bbq or something soon, because that's just what needs to happen. Come visit me and Ryan at JJ sometime (that's right, now I will be working there too)!
