Day 178: My Sleeping Babies...READ THIS DAD'S

This evening Tracy is having to work late at the hospital and because I am home alone while the kids are sleeping, tonight I get to do something I love doing. James is a pretty light sleeper and so this does not work all the time because of our squeaky floors. However, tonight I snuck into Emma's bedroom while she was sleeping. You may ask, "what do you do?" I simply sneak in and sit down in the chair in my jammies in her bedroom and listen to her breathing, her talking in her sleep, the squeaks, squaks, etc. After awhile I silently begin to pray blessings on her or James. Tonight I prayed for a healing in her little body and a great week as she experiences her second thanksgiving. I even prayed for health and a great spouse in the future. This is a part of parenting I love. Dads....if you are reading this and have babies...let me encourage you to do this, it really melts your heart and I am quite confident God smiles on you and your family as you are the head of the household and spiritual leader.

Ephesians 3: 17-19(NIV) These children are rooted and established in love; we pray that they may have power with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ towards them, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that they may be filled to the measure of the fullness of God.
