Proverbs 4:20-22 My child, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh.
Today was my day at the hospital while Jeff stayed home with the kids. They are so close to being done with school and I can’t wait to do more things around Brasov. There are so many museums and forts/castles to see in this area of Transylvania that we have not yet explored, and once the kids are done with the common core curriculum we can take advantage of the many learning opportunities around us.
Jeff and I had a nice schedule that accommodated the bi-monthly FFR meetings and store for the nurses that Jeff and I are attending/helping, however, with my travels back to Phoenix we have been thrown off our schedule. Because of this, we both totally forgot the staff meeting that was scheduled for today. Thankfully Katie texted me just before the meeting started and I was able to quickly get ready and then race to the support center for the meeting. I made it, but was 25 minutes late. I hate being late and missing things like this. I always end up feeling totally irresponsible. I helped out at the support center sorting through donations before heading to the hospital for my shift.
My shift today was wonderful, but quite boring. We only had a few kids at the hospital and 4 volunteers to do the work; it is such a wonderful blessing, but it makes the shift really long. On the third floor we only had 3 children, but one was sound asleep and the other doesn’t like to be held or touched, so we had one child to entertain and one to snuggle amongst the 4 of us. There were more kids on the other floor, so we each had a baby to snuggle. After the shift I made our daily stop at the grocery store and then home for dinner.
When I was in Phoenix I was able to find a game called Exploding Kittens and the kids just love playing it, so we played for a bit after dinner and before bed. This is definitely a great family game that gets everybody laughing. I think Lucia laughed so hard during this game she wore herself out because she fell asleep pretty quick and by the time I was leaving the kids’ room I found her like this….
This scripture is so wonderful. It reminds us to keep God’s words within our hearts because that is where we can find Him. If God is in our heart we have nothing to fear and we have a never ending love and eternal life with Him.
