I am sitting here in bed writing this post surrounded by sleeping children. What a blessed day.
Today we enjoyed the everyday kind of activities that we have never before been able to enjoy as a family. Showers. Teeth brushing. Lotion and kisses. Fresh clean pajamas. Prayers. Bedtime.
You know, for the past year and a half, every night when I tucked in Joel and Hannah I said prayers for them and I said prayers for my children who were halfway around the world.
Tonight we are all under one roof. And for the first time Abigail, Micah and Levi got to hear those prayers.
The Lord bless you and keep you
And make His face to shine upon you
Be gracious unto you
And give you great peace.
This is the same prayer I have said for my children every night of their lives. And now it is the prayer that I will have the gift of praying over Abigail, Micah and Levi.
