Well, Joshua and Meredith have gone down to the neighbor’s barn to make one last effort on the poor mama sheep’s behalf. They are going to try to deliver the baby. I pray that it goes well. Joshua delivered a baby in medical school, so he’s counting on that experience to help him. Meredith says this could determine her future career. She’s gone back and forth between wanting to be a NICU nurse and a midwife.
I have to confess that I have been a bit moody in recent days. It’s mostly this cold, I think. I’m kind of whiney and needy. I keep telling myself not to be that way, but the urge is strong. I want to be babied! It’s pitiful! I can be a little high maintenance at times. Maybe I need to ask God to help me.
Heavenly Father, please help me to be loving and kind, even when I am sick. Help me to put others before myself and to not demand attention. Help me to abide in You and to rest in You. And, Lord, please help the mama down in the barn to quickly and safely deliver her baby. Bring her peace and comfort. Amen.
