Offer it up!

   Oh when days are hard, it can be so hard not to get down and miserable!  Yesterday, I tried SO HARD to stay chipper and offer the whole thing up–the baby’s fever, the child with a sore throat, the mess throughout the house, the lethargic homeschooling. . .
    Finally I asked my mom to help me offer it up.  She gave me great ideas for whom to offer it up.  She assured me she would pray for me.  Then it all turned around!  Now the baby’s fever is gone, and we found a homeopathic tablet that has dried up his runny nose.  Everything else is shaping up, and I got some rest last night, to boot!  Thank you, Jesus, for letting us offer things up!  And thank you, Mom, for praying for me!
