It is Saturday afternoon and thankfully we are having a lazy, uneventful Saturday afternoon. It reminds me of what weekends were like before we had Reed. Brittany took a nap this afternoon and I watched the NCAA Tournament. Everyone is still doing fine...no news is good news.
It was just a few days ago that all this happened and everything is starting to calm down. It seems the shock of all this has worn off and we are experiencing the quiet before the storm begins (labor). Hopefully the storm is many weeks away.
I was talking to Brittany before she went to sleep and we talked about the one question that each of us had thought about but not actually talked about...Why is this happening?
We both came to one conclusion. We realized that God is using us and this experience to touch someone. We don't know who that person is and may never know. Maybe there is someone reading our blog that is not a believer. Every time I open our blog and read all the comments and prayers I can feel God's presence. Maybe there is a Nurse or Doctor here in the hospital that is not a believer. Many times the hospital staff has come in our room and we are reading the bible, listening to worship music, or talking about the incredible offers of kindness we have received from complete strangers.
I then realized that God is not only using us in this experience but he is also using everyone that reads or comments on this blog. This experience has already brought Brittany and I closer in our walk. I pray it does the same for you.
Please keep praying...Miracles can happen.
