This weekend my dear husband spoke at a Disciple Now at Cypress Family Fellowship in Houston.  What an amazing experience to see my husband stand and present the precious Word of God to forty students.  I am grateful that I was able to be there to learn myself.

Rustle, rustle… stir… whimper… whimper.  I role over and try to pry my eyelids open.  Squinting at the clock, I attempt to focus my eyes on the red numbers.  4:42.  Ugh.  She can make it a little longer till she needs to eat, I think….

Swish, swish…blankets moving…whimper…pant…  I have to sit halfway up this time to lean over my husband.  5:23.  Can she make it a little longer?  I was hoping for 6:30 this morning. Whimpering turns to panting that turns into wailing.  I slide my legs out from under the comfy covers and lean over the crib.  In the soft light I see my little girl turn to look up into my face.  Her countenance changes from utter disgust to one of the cutest smiles I’ve ever seen.  “Is momma’s little girl hungry?” I whisper.  She smiles.
