A day of rest

We've been going and going a lot lately, and I'm really grateful to just have a day at home to rest with the kids. There are things to be done, like laundry and throwing away papers from my paper piles, cutting coupons, and just playing with my two darling children.

Last night after reading as many updates as I could on baby Stellan, I felt the urge to go and hug my kids and to hold them close. The reality that I am faced with many days is that we have NO idea when we could go to meet Jesus. It really could be any moment. Therefore, I need to make the most of every moment that I have here on this earth. And believe me, I'm not always the best at doing that. Sometimes I am very determined and I accomplish a whole lot of tasks/projects in a day, but some days I do NOT get much of anything done! Of course, I'm also trying to balance the need to accomplish those tasks with the need to spend time with my children, to cherish them and embrace them and to remind them that they are indeed loved. I have often told my Bug that I and her daddy love her SO much, but that God loves her more than we could ever possibly love her. She has now begun repeating that when Erik and I tell her that we love her, and can be heard saying, "but you know what Mama? God loves me more than you!" To which I reply, "Yes Honey, He does! That's right!" Amen to that my friends. Amen. I'm so glad that we serve a God who loves us more than we deserve...more than we could ever fully understand. What a gift.

Keep Praying For Stellan

Little Stellan is still struggling in the hospital. I just added the button for him on the right side of my page. If you click on it, it should take you directly to his mama's page. I really wish that there was something that I could do to help this baby. Of course, the best thing to do is to pray. Sometimes in such dire circumstances, I feel like saying to God, "really Lord? Is prayer really one of the best things to do for this situation?" And He usually calms my spirit and reassures me that it is indeed one of the only things that we can humanly do. There is also a care calendar that just started for Stellan's family. I'm going to have to check that out.

Pray for Stellan

I'm asking you, dear friends, to please pray for baby Stellan. He is in the hospital again with some heart problems. I ache for my friend from college who is Stellan's mama, and for this darling boy...so sorry that they are going through such trials with this little one. Lord, please heal sweet Stellan.
