Deeply desiring to trust my Father this time approaching delivery, it's been interesting to have life experiences take me for a bit of a roller coaster ride. Yet again, His grace, His love, is evident as loved ones encourage me in spite of what my human strength can muster on its own. The contradictions of emotions is unsteadying, but sometimes in a song, a verse, a word of encouragement, a hug, a moment, His presence is near. The younger crew and I were doing our Bible story yesterday on creation, and listened to what He has made and what He has called *good.* So many gifts in this life, that point to His loving care. His Father-heart desire to care for us and adorn us like He does the sparrows and the lilies.
Sophie in the throes of a high fever while we were in a heavy snowstorm was given fluids by Daddy, Ma'ama, and myself with a spoon. She was just being stubborn, but responded so much better with patience and one of us nearby. When she began to feel better this is what she played with us who were down with feeling unwell.
