God showed up in a big way last night. We prayed and cried out for Him, so many of you have prayed and cried out for Him on our behalf. He came. He is here. He has lifted Kate, our little boys, and myself out of the raging waters and has set our feet on solid ground. God used the magnesium as a tool in His great plan, and the contractions have once again spread out considerably. Kate responded very well to the medication, she had a couple of "hot" and dizzy spells, but no vomiting or blood pressure crashes...another answered prayer. Kate and I were talking about how scared we were last night, and Kate said,"I really want to give this all to God, and I am really trying to do that...but I don't want to do that if it means that He is going to take away our boys". We talked about that and prayed about that. About 30 minute later Kate started to hum the tune to "Be still and know that I am God", and we sang that a number of times together. She said she just couldn't get that song out of her head. God used that song/phrase to reassure us both. We were both feeling like the situation was out of control, we were so scared that the babies were going to be delivered last night...and in one phrase that God put on Kate's heart, everything came into focus. God said just that...just settle down you two, I got this. The air in the room changed, our fears subsided, and God worked yet another miracle and stopped Kate's labor for the 4th time in 12 days. I hope that everyone that reads this has had or gets to experience the closeness of our God. It cannot be described in words. I have never felt as desperate or as scared as I did last night, and on this beautiful Sunday morning it feels almost like a distant memory. God carried Kate, He carried me, and He carried our precious little boys (who have grown quite fond of playing hide and seek with the heart rate monitors).
Another heartfelt THANK-YOU to everyone who has and who did pray for us. Heaven sent its army to this delivery room last night at the request of God's people. You all have such a special place in our hearts and we hope to one day thank everyone of you for praying for us when we could no longer pray.
