First Line Fridays (REMIX) - Week Twelve

Friday, July 15, 2016

How did it get to be the middle of JULY??? Thankfully our weather in WA has been mild so far this summer...other than a few weeks of 90 degree weather here and there. Thankful for our A/C unit and for weeks of 68 and RAIN in between. 

So excited for our weekend project this week...Painting the exterior of our house! Yay! Thankfully my hubby and his dad have their own construction business, so they have all the equipment and tools to make it a smooth day. 

Do you have any summer projects that you are hoping to get done around the house?

Now...on to my First Line:

Well, since writing the above, our night has taken quite the detour. [Yes, I usually write these posts on Thursday night.] My husband is on the way to the ER with Ezra, for a fever. If you don't know about his condition, the short version is this: Ezra was born without a functioning immune system (SCID) and received a lifesaving bone marrow transplant from his brother at 9 weeks old. We just reached his 2 year post transplant anniversary. He is doing SOOOOOOO well! But they still need to take extra precaution with fevers/infections. I know that he will be fine, but it is late and this is always stressful for me. They will give him a dose of IV antibiotics and draw cultures to test for infections. (Hopefully it is just a cold.) And then he should head home in a couple hours.. I will try and update this in the morning if there is anything further to report.

**UPDATE 8:30am: Zach and Ezra got home about 2:30 this morning. Ezra's temperature maxed at 102 in the ER. They gave him one dose of Motrin (between Tylenol doses) and by 6:00am his temp was 100.4. We gave him another dose of Tylenol and I am letting him sleep right now. Prayers for Zach while he is at work today. And we NEED Ezra's temp to stay below 100.4 without the aide of Tylenol. No result on the cultures yet. All his labs are normal right now though, so that means he is not dehydrated and his kidneys and everything are functioning just fine.**

In light of all this I am really switching up First Line Fridays today...I want to know what is YOUR first line in the Bible that you run to in trying times?

The verse that has gotten me through many battles is:

25“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
28“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
Matthew 6:25-30 NLT
