Got up this morning to discover that our little two year old man had been sick in the night, so having run a bath for him and got wifely person to sort him out I found myself turning up very last minute to Church at 8.30am (though the service started on time, which i am very pleased with). Between services I found he had been sick again whilst i was out and that stuff was coming out the other way too (hence the title of the post). Remarkably he wasn't complaining, though was obviously not at his best, and though he was sick on and off all day and unable to keep food down he seems to have got through the day well. I looked after him for a couple of hours this afternoon whilst Jo and Katherine (baby girl) went out for a walk with the dogs and generally splashed about and got messy in the soggy Cambridgeshire Countryside.
The two Church services I took part in today went very well, considering that at the start of both my mind was elsewhere! there was a real sense of the Spirit of God at work. Now this is not a phrase I use lightly or frequently, nor do i claim any credit, but there was an atmosphere of warmth and fellowship over and above our usual 'friendly church' vibe, and a number of people commented on it. Hooray!
Now am planning to wind down, watch this new series called 'heroes' which i've taped off the box over the past couple of weeks, and hopefully get to talk to my wife without the sound of toddler vomiting every few minutes. who knew kids could hold so much stuff even when they've not eaten!!!!!
