A Stolen Quiet Moment

10 His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of a man;

11 the LORD delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love. Ps. 147:10-11

I'm a bit tired. Beau came home from his Bible Study last night and said, "Wow, I've never seen you all talked out before". I wanted to talk to him, but I was just too exhausted.

"What do you want to talk about?" is the favorite question around the house these days. Jackson asks me this, and then says, "You talk, I'll listen" (little sneak reversed it on me!) So by 9 pm, I really am all talked out.

Roman is sleeping well at night, but even a solid 6 or 7 hours of sleep doesn't seem to recharge me as it used to. However, there is light in sight. Once we switch to a 4-hour nursing schedule in two weeks, I'm sure my old energy will return. I can't believe he is almost 4 months old! He is the sweetest, chubbiest, happiest little darling that a mommy could ask for. I told a girlfriend a few weeks ago that the more children I have, the happier I am at home. The Lord is faithful in that way.

The above Scripture is helping me get through the days. I don't have to be super-strong. Christ is that for me. I just have to serve my God in fear and humility and teach my children to do the same. My God is so big, so strong and so mighty- there's nothing my God cannot do!

It will pass and your energy will return. He is after all only 4 months old. :) I remember sitting and saying over and over, I will lift mine eyes unto the hill, from whence comes my strength? It comes from the Lord the maker of heaven and earth. I found the more babies I had the more fulfilled I was. The more I had the deeper my dependence on the Lord became and the deeper my walk. Remember is is only for season.
They grow up so fast that someday, you will be like me, trying to stop time and praying that God would just give me one more minute.
You do bless me so much Jennifer.

I love being home with my little ones too. I wouldn't trade it for anything and you couldn't pay me enough to make up for it.

My little man has been sleeping through the night for awhile now, and I still don't feel refreshed when I get up. It's amazing how much having babies changes things. I think it is because mommies sleep so much lighter, always hearing if the baby is crying.
