Yesterday, I had the sweet experience of taking my Safe Families child to visit her newborn brother in the hospital. It was fun watching her two-year old self interacting with her new brother for the first time and seeing her reunite with her mother for a precious visit.
I wondered if she would have a very difficult time coming back home with me after seeing her mom today, but everything went really well. I could just really feel God's presence. Except not so much when I got lost driving out of the city...
Ended up having a REALLY long night with the little one though. She spiked a fever in the night and refused Tylenol- even when I resorted to telling her it was Cinderella candy!
Last night I was supposed go to see Francis Chan at Moody Bible Institute. When I realized I wouldn't be able to leave all the kiddos with a sitter (Casey had to work), I was really disappointed to have to cancel my plans. I LOVE Francis Chan! Plus we celebrating this amazing friend's birthday. Plus, we were "pre-kicking off" our 7 adventure.
My disappointment was quelled when I heard God whisper, "but Erika, you are living Crazy Love tonight". Then I KNEW I was right where I was supposed to be.
If you haven't read either of the books I mentioned, and you are ready to have your safe, tidy, Christian world ROCKED, check them out.
Crazy Love, by Francis Chan
