Ever since our "practice run" on Saturday night, Luke has needed to talk a LOT about when Laney's coming and what exactly will happen when Mom and Dad go to the hospital. Last night before we put him to bed, he asked several times if she was coming tonight. Luke is a need-to-know kid, and for him, the more details and understanding he has of a situation, the better he does. So, an "I don't know" response is tough for him. At one point, Rog told him, "Only God knows, Luke, when Laney is going to come. We just don't know. Why don't you ask God about it? Ask Him if Laney's coming tonight."
I didn't hear the "prayer", but I heard Luke run back to Rog a minute later and say, "Dad! God said 'maybe' she's coming tonight!"
God's response sounds a lot like Mom and Dad's!
Even though he (or we!) didn't get the black and white response he (or we!) wanted, he seemed to feel better after talking to God about it. He fell asleep soundly and slept through the night.
God is so awesome that even a "maybe" from Him can restore our peace!
