Up All Night

Tonight is at least the 5th night in a row that my poor teething baby has kept me up. I was a little sniffly at the beginning of the week & that has turned into a full-fledged cold due to lack of sleep.

Tonight, as John couldn't stay asleep for even an hour it seemed, I was coughing my head off & haven't been able to breathe through my nose for days. I felt as if I was at the end of my rope & had nothing left to give. For real.

The last time he woke us up was around 5:15-5:30. He had a fever. D & I were attempting to give him medicine & he was fighting us. As we were doing this, D's phone rang.

When you're in the ministry & you get a call in the wee hours of the night/morning, it's usually bad news. Yup. One of our sweet friend's baby stopped breathing in the night.

Lord God, be with this precious family. Give them an outpouring of peace & comfort. Forgive me for thinking I'm having such a hard time. I thank you for my teething baby who keeps me up. Help me to never take my time with my family for granted. You are the Alpha & Omega, God. Help us to trust You.
