"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Day 6

Today has been a wonderfully quiet day - our first! We miss our family but we are enjoying Rachel! She is drinking about 15 mls every two hours - The Doctor is happy with this amount. She said to Dave that she likes to see babies drink 8mls an hour to keep hydrated. She takes her time with her bottle and sleeps alot.

Rachel is so well loved!! A nurse here has hand stitched a little white satin dress for her!! It looks like a little doll's dress....It's so beautiful. She is rarely ever put down - always in someone's arms....
Today I sang "Jesus loves me" to her...and cried...I don't know the words to describe how i'm feeling right now...maybe i can finish this later.

i'm off to take my turn to hold her.

Jesus loves me! He will stay,
Close beside me all the way;
He's prepared a home for me,
And some day His face I'll see.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

We are in spirit with your family and you are all the time in our minds and hearts because we pray with you. We praise with you the Lord for the time with little Rachel and that you as a family had the time to spend most of the day time [and night may be] with her. You are such a inspiration to us that looking at you from the outside and the living testimony !!!! Lovies Sieg and Renda Schreve
