Della Devoted!: Slow Down

Slow Down

The last week has been nothing short of a whirlwind for my family and I. It all started with my husband having a car accident, then my dad having to have surgery and Raylan getting sick. The pediatrician seems to think Raylan is developing Asthma. Praise God that my husband wasn't hurt worse than what he was and that my dad is on the mend.
    Life has been so hectic. I haven't had time to barely breathe let alone relax. I've been so stressed that I shamefully admit that sometimes I forget to thank God for his many blessings. We get so caught up in everyday life that we forget to thank the one who wakes us up every morning. It's funny how God has a way of humbling you.
     God wants us to slow down and take time to thank him for his many blessings! When Justin was finally able to go back to work,  my uncle took my dad back to the surgeon for a post-op follow up while I stayed home and nursed a sick baby. During this time, a sick Raylan wanted his mommy to hold him all day.



We snuggled under the blanket trying to stay warm, while watching Christmas movies all day. We had the glow of the Christmas tree, so we had an extremely relaxing day. I even had the chance to catch up on some reading which is a rarity.  I had been praying for just one relaxing day and finally got to do just that. It's the little things in life that makes you so grateful.  I didn't want Raylan to be sick, but like I said, God has a way of humbling you and making you slow down. God will get your attention one way or another. I realized while snuggling up to my baby boy that I need to always give God the thanks, praise, honor and glory and be thankful for everything. I need to take time to pray and thank God for everything. I need to always make time for God and put him first instead of putting him on the back burner.


In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.  1 Thessalonians 5:18

Slow Down! Take time to talk to God and thank him for everything and relax!
