One of the jokes at our house over the past years has been that there is one thing we really grow well here. Can you guess what that is?
We grow grass, and lots of it! It's been growing especially nicely for the past few weeks as we've had a lot of rain, with a few moments of sunshine 'sprinkled' in (joke intended!).
Being from Oregon, rain and green grass makes me feel all warm and cozy, which has been exactly what I needed for the past 12 days as I've battled sickness.
I've spent a lot of time in bed or on the couch, recovering from bronchitis, tonsillitis and a sinus infection. While that part has not been fun, I've so enjoyed the rain pattering on my window, and the occasional glimpses outside to see our spring coming into bloom.
I finally felt like I got my brain back yesterday - it's amazing how good it feels to THINK again! I'm now looking forward to a full recovery of energy and strength, which is on the rise today.
Thank you to those of you who prayed for me. It's been a very sweet time with the Lord, with much time for prayer and solitude. I'll be glad to get back to life, but also feel thankful for these days of rest and quiet. God is always good, and I bless Him for being near to me!
