A Welcomed Reprieve

by Jeff on July 9, 2008

Perhaps a few of you read my last post and actually joined with my last line and prayed for a reprieve from migraines and vomiting for me.  If you did, thank you.  I do know that last night I had a horrible migraine, this morning I still had it, and around 10am I was throwing up my breakfast.  But my mom’s prayer group included me in their prayer time from 10-11am, and I swear by noon I was feeling worlds better. For the first time in weeks I was able to do the laundry, clean the kitchen, pack a picnic dinner for our boating trip, keep food down, and my headache went away.  My mom got home from her prayer meeting, took one look at me and said, “Wow, you look way better.”  And it wasn’t because I’d showered or dolled up (I hadn’t!).  Anyway, all that to say that by the grace of God I had a welcomed reprieve today from the headaches and vomiting, and for that I am so thankful.  I even had the joy of joining my family for a boating trip this afternoon, where I basked in the sun (shielded by sunglasses and a hat!), and watched in wonder as my little boy, bundled in his life-jacket, ran around the boat absolutely giddy, driving with Papa, pointing at boats, watching Daddy wakeboard.  It was such a sweet afternoon, and an absolute kiss from God to be well enough to actually enjoy it.  Thanks to you if you happened to pray for me.  And thanks to God for a welcomed reprieve.
