Grace is Enough

This evening, as we were going through our nightly routine of getting the kids to bed, I noted that the thermostat said it was 75 degrees in the house.

For most people, this would not be a problem, and may even be normal.

We are not most people.

Because Mister and I are both affected by Hay Wells Syndrome, one of several ectodermal dysplasia (ED) syndromes that affect ectoderm as well as structures that do not derive from the ectoderm, we do not sweat properly.  I sweat only in extreme circumstances, and then only in one place.

Mister does not sweat at all. In fact, he usually starts overheating if the ambient temperature goes above 73 degrees.  No wonder he was cranky.

When Mister was just a few months old, we literally had to pack ice packs into the lining of his car seat just to go to church.  We keep a “cooling bag” with us at all times.  In it is a specialized cooling blanket (when wet works off of the evaporative properties), a cooling vest, a battery operated fan, a spray bottle, two bottles of water, a zipper bag with wash clothes, and a temporal scanning thermometer.

My husband went to the basement to check on the central air unit.  Apparently, the compressor went on the fritz.  So, we opened all the windows, turned on the fans, etc.

We finally got Mister settled down to sleep, after checking his temperature, which was at 98.  As long as we could get him to go to bed without too much of a fuss, we may be able to keep his temperature down until we can get someone out here to fix the central air.

Of course, I can’t get comfortable (and therefore cannot sleep) when it is too warm, so I stayed up when everyone else retired for the evening.

As I sat here, stressing over the central air unit, wondering whether or not Mister would remain cool enough during the night, the lyrics to the song Your Grace is Enough (Chris Tomlin) just kept going through my head.

This morning at church, our worship pastor, Demond Robinson, talked about how God’s grace truly is enough.  Not just when things are going as planned, but when life throws you a curve ball, too.  Then the worship team led us in the song.

And now, it keeps rolling through my head.  You know what that tells me? That the Lord Himself will protect us.  That isn’t to say that our central air will be back on immediately, or that it won’t cost us a ton of money that we weren’t expecting to spend right now.  But, the Lord will make a way for us to keep cool if need be.  Whether He sends a cool front, or we mooch cool air while sitting on a friends couch…

His grace is enough.

Thanks, Demond, for the reminder. Who knew I would need it tonight!

And now, since I can’t sleep, I am going to try to write some reviews that are due.

Be blessed,

Virginia

P.S.  In case you’re not familiar with the song, here are the lyrics…

Great is Your faithfulness oh God
You wrestle with the sinner’s heart
You lead us by still waters and to mercy
And nothing can keep us apart
So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me
Great is Your love and justice God
You use the weak to lead the strong
You lead us in the song of Your salvation
And all Your people sing along
So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me (x2)
So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me
Your grace is enough
Heaven reaching down to us
Your grace is enough for me
God i see your grace is enough
I’m covered in your love
Your grace is enough for me
For me
