An Eventful Week
Last week was a very eventful week. I fell ill for a couple of days, with unexplained pain that kept me in bed all day. But I was well taken care of by my children and my dear husband. And I treated my symptoms naturally and soon returned to good health--so thankful to the Lord.
The middle of the week was quite emotional, and then towards the end of the week, three of our chickens became very ill, and we thought they would die. All they would do is stand around, hunched over with their feathers puffed up. One of the chickens couldn't even see, apparently, as she was unable to figure out where the water dish was. They even stopped eating. Again, I treated them, and two of them were eating the very next day. The third also soon began eating again, and today, the chickens are mostly completely better, with the third chicken even regaining her sight. We even got some eggs from our healthy chickens on the Lord's Day. How grateful we are for the Lord's goodness and mercy to us, even in these seemingly small things.
Also, during the week we had quite a scare when my husband's car suddenly caught on fire. Thankfully it was parked and he was not in it, and no one was hurt. I am so very grateful he is okay. I hug him a little tighter each day and thank the Lord again for His protection.
