Greetings from Tacoma General Hospital

"Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."  II Corinthians 1:2-4
Since late Friday night, I have been in the hospital so that our baby & I could be under careful monitoring.  Friday night through Monday morning we were at Providence Saint Peters Hospital in Olympia, then on Monday morning we were moved to Tacoma General Hospital in case the baby is born early.  Both the baby and I are doing well.  Thank you all for your prayers. 

I read this prayer from the Lutheran Prayer Book this morning: 
Heavenly Father, You are indeed my Lord and God who has created me when I was but nothing.  In addition, You have saved me through Your Son.  Now You have appointed me to this official responsibility and set this work before me.  It does not proceed according to my will, and it is so great that it would otherwise weigh heavily on me and cause me great fer, that I of my own ability could find neither counsel nor help.  Therefore let everything be commended unto You, give me counsel and help, and remain faithful in everything, as You have promised.  Amen.

We love you and are praying for you Louise.
I love Luther's prayers. No matter what's going on in at the time, his prayers somehow seem to fit each situation and bring such comfort.

Amen. Remembering you and Nate. House is looking great. Want to help some more. When you and Nate and the baby are there it will then be a home. Bless you, my friend.
