This week has been a little rough for me physically. I have definitely not been on the top of my game! I have seen the doctor and am on my antibiotics and I am starting to come out of my funk. When I get an infection, it affects my whole system and can really shut me down!
Last night, I woke up at 4:00 a.m. and had a lot of pain. I was trying to adjust and re-adjust and couldn’t get rolled where I wanted. I didn’t want to wake up Jimmy (because I hate waking him when he is resting so well) and was feeling quite aggravated that I couldn’t get situated without so much pain. I was debating on having a pity-party right there in the middle of the night when I heard it.
One little bird, in the darkest of the night, singing her little heart out! It was a message straight from God to me! You know what my little solo bird said to me? She said, “Alicia, join me. Sing praises to your Creator. When all the world is silent, when no one knows, when the hour is the darkest, sing!”
No, I did not break out in song and wake up my husband. But as I lay there listening to my little friend outside my window, I started thanking the Lord for all of His blessings in my life. That is the last thing I remember. I was back asleep and woke refreshed and feeling much better this morning.
Thank you, Lord, for sending Your message to me in the form of my little solo bird!
