We drove home from the hospital this afternoon on a sunny seventy degree day. The sky, washed clear by last night’s rain, was bright blue and filled with fluffy clouds. It was another one of those perfect autumn days. Katy and I chatted about all the things we were missing about being home. Then we pulled in the drive. She said, “there it is… home!” We came into the back door and it was fun to hear her exclaim over everything, always adding, “I’m really home!” It feels so good to have her here.
Katy and I talked about our projects and things to be done first. We decided to begin working on our cradle, sprucing it up with new sheets and a baby bumper because Colin and Jenn are due to have their baby in two weeks. We made a promise to do things we enjoy for awhile, and soak in the goodness of being home. She also opened a letter from Mary Baldwin College and found that they have generously extended her Constitutional Law class to meet her need. We are thankful for everything we’ve learned over the past six weeks, but we’re looking ahead to all the wonderful things God has in store for us. Every day is a gift.
We send our love to all of you prayer warriors. You prayed us through a life threatening situation, and we will always be grateful. Tonight we are resting at home, but more importantly, we are resting in the peace that only God Himself can give.
