Better Day

Thanks for praying for Emma. She had a bit of a better day yesterday. Crying all the time has to be tiring for her...I know it is for me. Every time I get down though, I read someone's blog who seems to have it a little worse. If you would lift up baby Stellan (Not Me Monday inventor's little baby) I would appreciate it. He has RSV and is struggling badly right now. They have the intubation stuff at the ready. He was diagnosed with some kind of heart failure in the womb which the doctors fully expected would lead to his certain death, but God provided a miracle for him. He was born totally normal! Praise God! So, God is still in the miracle business. I pray for one for Emma daily. It's just hard to understand sometimes why some miracles are on this side of Heaven and some are not.

I'll be thinking and preparing an entry for tomorrow about our lives in 2008. If you remember something that surely should be included, drop me a line and let me know. You don't want to miss this one. We'll have the quote of the year from Luke, almost guaranteed to make you at least smile.

Is anyone besides me struggling with the fact that we'll begin yet another year in two days? Time is flying by at incredible speeds. It seems that it was only a few days ago we were celebrating 2008! I remember Kelvin commenting that we would have to celebrate this new year's eve at the beach house. Well, Ike had other plans. It was fun while it lasted.

I just feel like I can't get it all done...spending time with the kids like I desire, nurturing their curiosity and relationship with God, getting things organized around the house in real life the way they are in my head, working on my relationship with Jesus (although I'm learning through our trials with Emma to lean on Him and breath Him in more every day. I wish I could learn such lessons without such a trial.), getting paperwork completed and services lined up for Emma, etc., etc.

We're working on the website for Emma's Hugs. I'll let you know when we're up and running. It's exciting to see how things are developing for this endeavor. Stay tuned!!

Have a wonderful day!
