Time to be quiet

My poor little one can't breathe. She slept well last night, only waking once really, the second time she awoke she went back down briefly after I went in but woke up about 15 min later. We were up at 5:00am watching Praise Baby DVD's and sitting on the couch. Next thing I knew she was sleeping on the couch beside me. When Daddy got up she went to him and he sat on the rocking couch...she fell fast asleep. Luckliy my hubby is a Realtor and makes his own hours. I told him I would go get my oldest from her mom's house and take her to school. The baby slept for 2 hours on his chest.

I got home and she and I played and attempted to clean. I gave her some Barley Cereal mixed with pureed mangos and she seemed to love it, but it was hard to keep anything in her mouth because she couldn't breathe. She did end up eating quite a bit throughout the morning. I gave her some more of the Tylenol Cold & Cough and at 10:30 she went to sleep. I think she's breathing better. She's had a tough morning. I hope she sleeps for a long time.

I might lay down here in a minute to nap. I have so much to do. I'm still so motivated to finish organizing my home. I still have to finish my hubby and my room and little odds and ends in the others but thanks to the help of my mom, my hubby and my oldest (again, the little one tried to help too) we're almost there.

Every since Janna posted about Chris Tomlin's song Indescribable I can't stop listening to it. The words are so beautiful and meaningful.

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation's revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable, Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable, Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable, Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
Incomparable, unchangeable You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same
You are amazing God
You are amazing God


I love how at the end he changes it to "You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same"...isn't that what's so amazing. When you read the lyrics and think of all He's done and all of His power, and yet in our imperfection and moments of little faith, He is still there and He still loves us.

What an awesome thing to consider.

Matthew 6:26-34

26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[a]?

28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Not only does he love us, Jesus Himself told us not to worry about ANYTHING....God will take care of all of our needs, big and small, because we are precious to Him. Imagine the love you have for your children...not multiply that by infinity...THAT is how much God loves us.

Very cool!

That is one of my favorite songs.

Well, at least you've got a song in your head that you like instead of a commercial jingle! :)

Thanks for the link!
