I had forgotten what it was like with a newborn in the house. I think she might have her nights and days mixed up. But, there are ways to fix that.
We didn’t get a chance to go to the park this morning, but read from home. Following along in the Mosaic, we discussed Remembrances.
For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this to remember me.” In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people– an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this to remember me as often as you drink it.” For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again. (1Co 11:23-26 NLT)
Something that I find missing a lot of times is the attachment with those in the Faith who have gone before. Rarely do we remember the days, births and deaths and events, of Christendom – but will go out of our way to celebrate civil holidays. Where are our attachments?
We were up a good portion of the night – while my wife nurses, I don’t find it easy to remain asleep. Just something not fair about that. The kids slept through it and they seem to be enjoying the new little one. In truth, we all are. It will take a bit of adjustment, but that is to be expected. I am taking applications for babysitters though!
I want to thank all of your for your prayers and well wishing.
I have plenty of posts saved up for this week, so, while I may not get to every comment or email, the blog will continue. And of course, I am always looking for guest contributors.
Well, I’m going to take a nap.
