God Said 'Maybe'

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!


  1. Oh, these last days of pregnancy are a bit stressful...when, where, how it will all work together while still trying to carry on normal routines, activities, etc.

    So excited you're so close! Having all of those contractions have GOT to be doing something, right!?! Please text me when you have her, I can't wait :)

    Love to you- give Luke hugs from us too, he's going to be such an awesome big brother and help for you!

  2. I love it!

    Maybe I need to take a lesson from Luke and let God's "maybe" be enough for me. :)

    Hopefully Laney (and Jenny Kate) will be here SOON!!! I'm with Luke...this waiting game is not my cup of tea! :)
