Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

What have we done?

We ordered a new bed for our eldest dd which came just after baby was born - to help with storage issues. So now we have this still boxed in hallway, dd has emptied her bedroom ready (though it's all dumped in schoolroom) but as we've discovered her bedroom is full of damp we think it would be better to swap office and her room around!
We also have a new carpet for the living room and it makes sense to try empty room to put carpet down while dd's bedroom is empty so we can use the latter to put items from the living room in.

But this all adds up to one big mess :-( and a lot of pressure for dh and stress for me as family life doesn't function well with all this upheaval - add to this constant feeding and little sleep, I guess there's no wonder I just want to cry - plus we really could do with getting this done this week as dh goes in hospital for a knee operation a week on Monday.

Its so hard to truly trust God at times like this and to continue living as I truly believe God wants us too, I guess not being able get to church since before baby was born hasn't helped, I could really do with a word from God right now (and a bit of sleep wouldn't go amiss)

I know He's Sovereign and holds us all in His hand - think I probably just need some attitude readjustment at the moment!
