"Back" from vacation

I'll preface this post with the following:

Philippians 2:14-15  14Do all things without murmurings and disputings:  15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

I am trying not to complain, but I feel like big baby.  My vacation to Boston with my husband to view the foliage was short-lived. After posting my previous "vacation announcement" we took off to the airport.  What you don't know is that I've been suffering from a cold - and I'm not the best sick person - since Wednesday of last week.  Sunday night was a BAD night and this morning was a BAD morning.  Honestly, it was a tough decision to decide to stay home. 

Fearing the cold had turned into a sinus infection (turns out, it was - I went to the doctor today for some antibiotics), and noticing that on the way to the airport, I couldn't breath through my nose, I made the decision to turn around and cancel the trip.   All the time I kept thinking "If I get on the plane and can manage to suffer through the several hour flight, will my head pop off from the landing"?  That thought was finally what pushed me over the edge to make the call to the doctor.

Am I complaining?  You decide.  On the one hand, I'm really bummed because I was looking forward to getting away to explore a cool city, not to mention my husband was really excited about the trip too, that I spoiled.  On the other hand, I still have the week off of work, my house is really clean, and I can spend a lot of quality time with God and getting ahead on some ministry things while the Z-pac kicks in.    It kind of reminds me of some previous posts where I was reminded that I am really not in control of my life.

So, for now, I am back online! Thanks for the vacation well wishes!  -- J
