"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

No more spells but Rachel is definetly not herself.  I think she has her days and nights mixed up again, but she doesn't sleep long either.  She is restless and unhappy, sometimes pretty blueish.  She had a hard time pooping this morning - so maybe the oatmeal yesterday wasn't a good idea? Yesterday I felt so restless too, it was super hard to focus on anything in the house....except one thing. I got pretty obsessed with finding a used play structure for the kids and I think that's where I poured all that nervous energy.  We did finally get one but this job literally took all day - including one useless trip across the city for Dave. (those kijiji pictures can be deceiving can't they?) My brother is coming over sometime to help set it up. The kids are SUPER excited to see their uncle Kelsey! Thank-you:) It has a few swings, a sandbox, a little fort on top, and a slide. I am so looking forward to having something for our kids to entertain themselves with in the backyard. (and share with their friends) We get out so seldom these days and we don't know what the summer will bring.....

oh boy, do I ever need some 'get up and go' today.....can I buy that somewhere??

Coffee & chocolate work for me! But there's usually a crash later : ( Maybe it's okay to not have "get up & go" today; just feel free to relax and go with the flow; if the housework doesn't get done, it'll still be there tomorrow!

I agree with Carol...just let the 'get up and go', go! But I know that is easier said than done when you have a houseful of kids, people to feed, etc. etc. Hope you enjoy your play structure -- make sure you post pictures!

Wishing that there was a way to magically make it all better... That if we prayed hard enough - Rachel would be healed and that life would be like it is supposed to be. But then I remember - as you have so eloquently said before - God has a plan. Maybe not our plan - but his. I am reminded and humbled by your faith in that.

So instead, I will pray that Rachel can find some peace, and let you relax. Maybe get some sleep yourself.

Ha ha - so funny your last line. If you find up, please let me know where I can buy it. I can see mom's and dad's across the world lining up for that one!

Oh, Kendra, Dave, Ethan, Abigail & Rachael,

My heart goes out to you - All I can say today is - Keep trusting ( Prov. 3:5 & 6) - these verses are one of the passages that John & I claimed together and I continue to do so now. You are such a blessing - I am encouraged by your blogs - please keep writing although it must be difficult. Lots of love & prayers.
