Hold me

Emma has liked nothing more the past couple of days than to be held. She doesn't want us to put her down, and she hasn't been very fond at all of her own bed. So, we hold her, and she sleeps with us so we can all get some much needed rest. I hope my midwife is right about the fourth child raising itself. Cora will do very well for herself if she will just sleep in her little bed most of the time. ;) I'm sure we'll figure it all out, and all you sweet friends and family out there will lend some holding arms in time of need. God will provide exactly what we need...He always does. I think I'm kind of like Emma lately too. I would like nothing more than for God to hold me in His arms all day long. I know He wants me to lay my burdens at His feet and take His yoke upon me. So, I think I will try to do a better job of doing just that...

I wanna sit at Your feet, drink from the cup in Your hand,
Lay back against You and breath, feel Your heartbeat,
This love is so deep, it's more than I can stand,
I melt in Your peace, it's overwhelming

Happy Birthday 79th birthday to my sweet Grandmama!


  1. His hands are the best place to be, but it's just so hard to get there sometimes when we are struggling! Sounds like Emma knows where the best place to be is as well! Your loving arms! I pray that you get the rest and sleep that you need! I'll be praying!

  2. I know that the Lord is holding you through all shows in your smile and your strength!! Cora will be great and I know there is nothing sweeter then holding sweet Emma when she needs it. I am always praying for you all!! I am going to try to come to your shower on Saturday but that is the same day that I am helping Jackie give the Cokers a good bye dinner so I may be cutting it all close.

  3. Bless her wido heart! Oh I love that Abby wants to be held... my arms get tired, but the meer fact that she wants momma is so touching to me. How are you holding up, I will pray for strength for you! You are a wonderful momma! Thank you for continuing to visit us and leaving such sweet comments! You are in my thoughts and prayers sweet one!
