Kathryn is improving, and went to her church small group tonight to be with friends. It's so good to see her rebound. She has some aches and pains, but was able to continue on with her day and we had a busy one. While I took Qavah to the hospital this morning for a transfusion, she stayed home to do a little babysitting and laundry. Qavah is feeling better tonight after a bag of red cells. She rode her bike around the driveway and enjoyed the cool evening out of doors.
Our earthquake experience felt like the rumble of a freight train. When it didn't stop after a few seconds I watched the pictures on my bedroom wall begin to rattle out of place. Qavah came running into my room and stated that her walls were shaking and that she didn't like it. Kathryn asked, "What is it Mama?" "An earthquake," I replied. We stood beside my bed listening to the creaking and rumbling, then a peaceful calm fell upon us. There was no fear, just wonder. Kathryn commented, "Mama it was surprisingly calm in our house, and the sun was still shining so clear and bright." This is the verse that came to me.
I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8
