This is the day the Lord has made...

In God's infinite wisdom he allowed me to be admitted to the hospital today. We went to the Specialist and recommended I pack my bags and get to the hospital. I know that they said this was a possibility, but I really was not expecting it. In fact I told Caleb going in I did not think they would admit me. It was a hard day hearing again that our sweet girl isn't doing as well as they'd like, but as I write this tonight I can honestly say we're doing well. (maybe that's cause I've cried so much I don't have anymore to cry) God comforted me continually today and I never felt alone, even though I had to lay in the hospital for awhile without anyone here. I love resting in the fact that God knew this was going to happen and for reasons unknown to us, this is the best plan.

It looks like I'll be here until she's born and they're predicting that will be between two and four weeks. But really we're just taking it one day at a time. Please pray for Vanessa to grow. Each little bit helps tremendously. I'm praying for a five pound baby! Please also pray for Elijah. One of the hardest things for me, besides Vanessa's health, is missing Elijah. He's not allowed in the room with me. I've been given permission to go to the lobby for very short periods of time to see him, but with needing so much help with him I don't know how often someone can bring him here to see me for such a short time. You could pray that they lift the restrictions and he could hang out in the room with me.
I don't know how much internet access I'll have, plus I have to lay on my side most of the day, but feel free to call, text, or visit...I have all the time in the world. I'll check my emails when I can, but don't know if I'll be able to write back. 661-373-8841.

Keep on Praying...and I'd love any verses or sermon suggestions. Caleb is putting stuff on my ipod to listen to.

jessica we love you so much and are praying earnestly for you.

these verse have helped me tremendously
Isaiah 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Psalm 27:13-14 "I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord."

i would love to come see you during the day .. i know how hard it is sitting in a hospital room all day with nothing to do. praying for you sweet family and little girl!!!
