We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

Admitted for Now

Last night, I began having some contractions and enough discomfort to contact the doctor on call at our practice. Thankfully, my doctor was the one who very quickly called me back! Within about 15 seconds, he decided to have me come on in. And I was so glad he did. I learned quickly that I was contracting every 1.5-2 minutes. Thankfully, he got them under control with two doses of medication. Long story short, I am here to stay~ at least until Monday. He has decided to go ahead with steroids and help the babies lungs develop more quickly and keep a close watch on us all. We would again appreciate your prayers. Again, we all~ the boys included~ feel very carried and cared for through each and every day. I read this familiar verse on a friend's blog early this morning and it reminded me of God's perfect knowledge and plans for us: In Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.~ Psalm 139. May this day reflect His plan so clearly that this truth is obvious to us all.

Tiffany. I have been keeping up with you on your blog. I remember all too well the days of uncertainty of when my baby would come and the long days in the hospital not knowing when that day would come and praying and asking the Lord for just one more day. That verse always brought me comfort in knowing that the Lord already knew when my child would be born and already knows when your children will be born and that brought me such peace. Enjoy your quiet time in the hospital to draw strength from Him. Whenever will you be given such time to feast upon His word again. Praying for you dear friend during this time. I know that the separation from family is difficult on daddy, the kids and mommy. It's not easy but its worth it! Your hospital is great too! Love them all! Missy Outland

Oh, Tiffany, we are praying and praying for you and these three tiny blessings. We are also praying for Micah and the boys. May the Lord give you peace, and may He give you much rest in mind and body. "When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul." Ps. 94: 19 I love you, dear sister! Heidi
