Babies are so unpredictable, as we all are. Kate has a cold and hasn't been sleeping well. I was all set for a challenging day today. Plus I have her at my house because the men from Lowes are here, finally putting our new doors in...with lots of noise.
So how is Kate? She's been sleeping for four hours non stop. What a sweet heart! Sometimes when we think things are going to go wrong, by the grace of God they turn out ok.
I have been on the receiving end of God's grace numerous times in my life. God just seems to reach down and lift me up when I need a hand. Some people might call these things coincidences but we know they are God-incidences. All I can say is thank you Lord and try to somehow be worthy...I miss the mark on that a lot.
Anyway, I hope I am a sign of God's grace for Kate. And I want to thank everyone who is a sign of God's grace to me, especially Barb, my wife. Take a look at Kate, smiling through the sniffles.
