Safe

am linking up for Five Minute Friday.  The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today's prompt is "safe". It was so good to see this crew and get back into the groove of FMF. We'd love to have you join us.  Just hop onto Twitter on Thursday evenings and follow the #fmfparty. Hope to see you there! 

Do you find yourself trying to keep yourself safe from germs this time of the year? Flu and everything else that seems to be going around. I don't know about you, but I try everything in my power to stay healthy. And in general, I am a rather healthy person.

But this week, I was attacked by the awful stomach bug that is going around. It just hit out of nowhere. When I don't feel well, I look for my favorite comfort items to help me feel better.  My favorite blanket, hot tea, a nice bath etc. What are your favorite things when you don't feel well?

I hope that you and your family are finding yourselves healthy and safe this winter season. Home is a place where I always feel safe and comfortable. My heart breaks for those who do not have access to a safe home in their lives. I pray that they soon are able to find safety. 

Perhaps each day we can follow the words of Jill Briscoe from the IF Gathering. "You go where you're sent; and you stay where youre put; and you give what you've until your done." Amen! And praying you all are safe from those awful germs this week.

  6. I loved IF Gathering, i watched it from my local church and it was awesome! I also wrote that quote down. It was probably my biggest take away. My boys haven't got the stomach bug this year. Praying for God's protection because it usually gets us at some point or another. Feel better!

  15. Tara, your words radiate hope and encouragement even in your dire circumstances. Being ill in the way you are at the moment is a reminder of our shared frail humanity and how none of us are completely safe from succumbing to sickness. Sending you prayers, hugs and healing thoughts. Hope you feel much better soon! xo
