But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Being suctioned :(

The babies were awake from about 4 until about 11 p.m. yesterday, miserably tired yet unwilling/unable to go to sleep. We did all of the following, often together: swaddling, feeding, bathing, pacifier, shushing, white noise, rocking, bouncing, finally getting a couple to sleep, only to have a couple others re-wake them!!! I was definitely not the happiest child of God, being "suctioned" of my junk - in this case, impatience and selfishness. Thanks for continuing to pray for us. The babies, too. It's hard to see them so miserable. I don't think it was due to the remainder of their cold; they just decided sleep was overrated! I pray tonight is better. The afternoon and night before were great, and Gavin and I even got out on a date, so I realize these things are passing. "Light and momentary troubles," as the Apostle Paul put it. :)

Will demonstrating what we need more of around here; preferably in their beds! :)


  1. Precious child......this too shall pass Mama! Prayers continue....

  2. A Catholic friend of ours remarked once 'We are sanctified by our children.' My guess is you two have A LOT of suctioning ahead. :)

    Grace and peace be with you both - in Jesus' name!!!

  3. Suctioning...that's a great metaphor. I remember the first morning home from the hospital with Nellie - I woke up realizing that I had to feed/change/dress a baby before I could even think about having a cup of coffee or breakfast. I felt like my selfishness was being violently torn away. Now I realize it's more of an every day sanctification. Anyway, hang in there and we're praying!

  18. Pizza can be a nutrіtiоus ѕnack or mеal, but the
    tasty food often сomes laԁеn with
    fat and calories. Net offers twο imрortаnt top
