You Had a Bad Day

Category: All Posts,Stories of Life – Rose – 11:18 am

Alex, my ten year old (who btw just made the little league majors!) plays the chipmunks CD over and over…especially – You had a bad day…I am sitting at SeaTac and that song has gone through my head…actually I’ve had a couple of bad days. Last week Alex and Rich both had a bad flu. I was feeling pretty good and happy it I didn’t get it. Monday evening in the middle of dinner, it hit…bad…stomach flu…I was up all night, hoping it was only a 24 hour bug since I had to leave at 7:00 a.m. today for South Carolina for the Vineyard National Leadership retreat. I was in bed all day yesterday, barely coherent. Was feeling a bit better this morning, weak and tired. I got to the airport a little late, somehow in my delirium I didn’t calculate the time correctly. I ran to security, line was so long…got to the gate literally the minute they shut the door. They wouldn’t let me on. Once they shut the door that’s it, done, you lose…
So, I am sitting in the airport, next flight is at noon which will get me into Charleston around 9:30 p.m. ugh…I will miss the “meet and greet” time tonight but will be there for the meetings in the morning.
If you think about it, please say a couple of prayers, I am not feeling so well and don’t want to relapse…I doubt I am contagious, just feel weak and have a bit of a headache…thanks

  1. Father, I do pray for Rose. Refresh and restore her even as she is traveling. I pray that she will be able to sleep tonight in her hotel room and be refreshed tomorrow. Help her to be wise in what she does, but strengthen her for the ministry You have for her to do. We pray for complete healing in every part of her body. Strength and grace to her, in Jesus’ name . . . Amen

  2. Will be praying for you, Rose. I hope the rest of your trip is hassle-free, and that you will enjoy the fellowship at the retreat.
