The Heavens Declare...

Hudson's medicine wore off a little early this morning and so he was up coughing and struggling to breathe at 4:45 instead of 6:00 when we usually get up for the day. Of course I would've liked more sleep, but any Mama knows you'll do anything for your baby when they're feeling sick and they can't help themselves. So I was up with him, giving him back his pacifier after each coughing fit so he could comfort himself until 6:00 when it was time for another round of meds from the nebulizer and his breakfast, too. Needless to say, I had a hard time staying awake during his feeding, and I passed out sometime during his meal. I woke up gently to a room that had filled with a soft light (meaning, I realized I'd been sleeping a while). Then, I saw it. I looked up and from my bed I could see the sky filled with a glorious, intense light of pink, purple and blue. It was absolutely beautiful. (This picture in no way does it justice). I felt God whispering in my heart, "Good morning! I knew you had a hard night (I was right there with you!) and I thought you'd like to see this before it was gone. I know this is one of your favorite ways to start the day. I made it because I love you, and I can't wait to spend the day with you." My heart warmed and I was thrilled to wake up to such a beautiful gift. It's amazing to think that God didn't have to make the sky beautiful, but it is a work of art, just to show us a little of what He can do, a little of His great glory.
Next, I turned to see Hudson staring deeply and intently at my face. He seemed to know Mama needed to sleep too, because my sweet boy had waited patiently for me to wake up without stirring at all to let me know I'd passed out and left him to eat alone. A glance at the alarm clock revealed it was already 7:00 and he'd really been sweet, waiting almost an hour for me to wake up.

Well this one made me cry. So sweet. I can relate to this place you are in so well. Isnt God so good to remind us in such special ways that He is with us? Thanks for the blessed reminder today. Praying Hudson feels better soon.
