Angels watching over me

I have said in the past, and I am sure I’m not the first to have said it, that having a child is like wearing your heart on the outside of your body where it cannot be protected. When my first was born, my daughter, I thought I could never love another human the way I loved her, and then my son was born and my heart expanded to hold them both, plus their spouses and don’t forget my grandchildren! I have gone through having to have an EEG on Cherita to see if she had a brain tumor only to find out that it was just a “bad temper” when she was ten-months old, the problems we had with her teeth, to Ara nearly dying with a burst appendix at the age of ten. There have been a lot of laughter with the tears in our day-to-day life and I wouldn’t trade one moment of it for any amount of money. Thinking that getting them grown relieves you of problems is just being naïve, that’s where the real trials and tribulations start. The small boo-boos can be taken care of with a little TLC and band aids but financial problems, fertility issues, real health issues like having two lungs full of blood clots and one child with impending knee surgery tomorrow takes planning and a lot of prayer and knowing that God gives you guardian angels to watch over them when you can’t be there. I have told in the past how when my son was dying with gangrene from his appendix having burst that while he was crying and I was limited to stopping at the red line on the floor when he was rolled through the doors of the operating suite that little ten-year old boy saw his angel standing behind the surgeon and became calm. It was a testimony he told to everyone that came to see him and then he walked up and down the hospital halls telling other patients how his angel had come to be with him during his operation. So I believe that tomorrow as he goes to sleep under the anesthesia his special angel will be there watching the whole process.

What do people do that don’t have faith in knowing that Jesus died and shed His blood so that we could be healed? I thank God that according to Psalm 91:11-12 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

Tonight I wish I could lay my boy down in his little trundle bed, laying my hand on his head and pray his good-night prayers with him, since I can’t I know that God is giving His angels the job of watching over him, thank you God for that. Know that He is watching over you and all yours too!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
