Sleeping Beauty

Well last night we put Maggie down at 10:00pm.  We had just gotten home from our long road trip from San Antonio.  We were all tired.  My wife was feeling a little under the weather.  Something about her and hotel rooms just don't mix.  She caught a little bug we think.  So, we climbed in the bed around 11:00 or so.  I then proceeded to get up and down out of bed to help my wife with things she needed.  Advil, heating pad, water, more blankets...  She was fighting a fever.  Finally in the early morning, not sure what time, she broke the fever!  YAY!  Through all this, Maggie didn't make a peep.  It was truly the Lord at work.  He knew Hannah needed to fight this thing without having to do a feeding in the middle of it.  He also knew I needed to help and Maggie needed some sleep.

What did Jesus do for us last night?

He healed Hannah, gave me energy to help, and put a tired baby into a long, much needed sleep.
Thanks Jesus.  You rock!

The Trip

So we just got back from a little work/vaca from San Antonio.  It was fun!  Maggie's first real trip out of Shreveport.  She did great.  The Lord has truly blessed us with a good baby.  She loves to ride in that car!

What did Jesus do for me today?

What didn't he do for us the past couple of days.  He kept us safe in travels.  Kept Maggie happy on the road.  Kept my work easy.  Helped me be patient in times I needed a lot of it.  And many little things.  For instance, I was going to have to go to the hallway in search of the maid at the hotel to get some extra towels.  And literally, when I was at the door to go out, she knocked.  Thank you Lord for handling every little detail in our lives.  We love you!
