Day 1 One Hour

Today is the beginning of Lent. I occasionally observe Lent, and decided this year I would limit myself to a maximum of one hour of computer time per day. That may sound like a lot, but I've already realized it's going to be a challenge for me. Perhaps it will help to make me more organized.
But I also wanted to do something besides just giving something up. So I've decided for the next 40 days I will celebrate one blessing God has granted me each day.

For Today:

Thank you God for the Internet. Thank you for giving me a way to stay connected with friends and family. Especially during a crazy winter storm like this one!

It's been quite a week. First off thank you to everyone who prayed for Hayden. God was faithful and Hayden got to go home from the hospital on Friday! She is still recovering, but her Mommy says that she is getting back to her old self.
Her arrival home on Friday was such a blessing in SO many ways. Many of you know that we were hit with almost 2 feet of snow on Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. Roads were impassable, and the city was a disaster. We are so grateful for God's timing of bringing Hayden home (which at the time felt a little rushed) before the storm so that her family could stay safe and rest together in the craziness.
Thank you GOD!

Pray for Baby Hayden

This post is a request for prayers for Hayden. To my facebook friends this is not a surprise, but to anyone else who may come across this blog I'll update you.
Hayden is 6 weeks old. She is 8 days younger than our sweet baby Evan. She is the baby of friends and a fellow resident.
Currently Hayden is in the pediatric ICU at our Children's hospital. She has pneumonia in both lungs. She is fighting, but it is still a serious situation. Please join me in praying for Hayden, her mother, father and big brother.

The LORD our God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. - Zephaniah 3:17
