Privileges

This morning, at 4:00 am, it was an absolute privilege to be able to get up and nurse my daughter back to sleep.

I used the time to pray for Sophia. Sophia is 8 months old, and she had a CT scan yesterday morning. They found a brain tumor. It's described as 'advanced'. She is having brain surgery this morning at 8:00 am central time. Please, please, pray for Sophia. She is in God's hands, and her parents are resting in this, but I can't imagine the pain they must be feeling. Please pray for them as well. You can find updates at her father's twitter account here.

And know that I am holding my babies a LOT closer today, and counting each moment a privilege and a precious gift from God.

How sad, I'll keep Sophia in my prayers.

That whole story is just so sad and shocking for them. Art knew Jon's family when they were out in Washington. We are praying today!

As much as I love sleep, God always used the nighttime feedings to provide a great time of prayer! We'll be praying for little Sophia!
