Writing this on my coffee break, but I wanted to tell you all who’ve been praying for me over these last few months that on May 2, at 8:30am our daughter Kajsa Ruth Unger was born. She was 8 pounds, 15 ounces and was delivered naturally (without any c-section)!
My wife and I are definitely praising the Lord on many fronts and are now officially in newborn time. I think I slept 4 hours last night and mama got less sleep than me! Yikes!
I’m writing this on my coffee break at work and will toss up some thoughts from time to time as my zombie-brain has them. Tomorrow, if any of you wake up after having 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, praise the Lord. I now have a totally new perspective on Psalm 127:
1 Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
2 It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep.
3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Is it any mystery that David says that the Lord gives sleep and then talks about how the Lord gives children? David understood well the things that I’m just starting to really piece together.
Until Next Time,
