My Daughter Gave Birth to Quadruplets!

Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Psalms 112:1-2

Life Goes On/Encouraging Words

Sarah is 14 weeks today. She is experiencing a lot of discomfort from her belly growing so fast. She is still throwing up, some days more than others. Throwing up causes her to have contractions for hours. We are hoping and praying that the morning sickness--and all that goes with it--will pass soon.
Nights are rough.Her high hormone levels make her have hot and cold flashes, as well as make sleeping almost impossible.When she turns over, one baby wakes up another until they all start bouncing around--quite a circus! Catnaps are the best she can do, for now.
In spite of the miracle of quadruplets on the way, life goes on as usual. Sarah's husband Tony was drilling this weekend when the drill slipped. It went in one side of his thumb and out the other. He spent the evening in the Emergency Room having metal pieces taken out of the wound and getting stitches. He is fortunate that the bone wasn't damaged. It sure looks like it hurts! Tony is busy making preparations for his own personal baby boom. Please pray that he recovers completely.
One of my college students gave me encouraging words tonight. He stayed after class to tell me what happened last week. He had been praying for Sarah when God spoke to his heart to tell him that everything is going to be okay. He was so excited he couldn't wait to tell me. I was very encouraged, not only by his words but by the fact that he is praying for us! Several people have had the same impression while praying about the quads. One of them is my son. He told me right away that he felt that they were going to be okay.
This experience is so much bigger and involves more people than I could have imagined. So many people are praying! It makes me wonder what God plans to accomplish. Whatever it is, today I feel privileged to be a part of it.
