It's just before dawn; all the children are still asleep in their beds. Oh, thank you, Lord, for the gift of having all of them still at home, safe and sound, under our roof. They're healthy, they're home. I know it won't last forever, and that makes this moment so poignant. So thank you, Lord, for both the blessing of having these children, still in our care, peacefully sleeping in their beds... and thank you for the gift of knowing what a blessing this is.
