Bedtime Prayers

I am sitting here in bed writing this post surrounded by sleeping children. What a blessed day.

Today we enjoyed the everyday kind of activities that we have never before been able to enjoy as a family. Showers. Teeth brushing. Lotion and kisses. Fresh clean pajamas. Prayers. Bedtime.

You know, for the past year and a half, every night when I tucked in Joel and Hannah I said prayers for them and I said prayers for my children who were halfway around the world.

Tonight we are all under one roof. And for the first time Abigail, Micah and Levi got to hear those prayers.

The Lord bless you and keep you

And make His face to shine upon you

Be gracious unto you

And give you great peace.

This is the same prayer I have said for my children every night of their lives. And now it is the prayer that I will have the gift of praying over Abigail, Micah and Levi.

My oldest - pretending to sleep:)


My poor sick girl



Abigail - such a tender heart this one has!


Micah all tucked in for the night


My little ham - doesn't look very sleepy!

*Hallelujah we are a family!
*Pray for Hannah. She has been sick for 3 days now.
*Time to start praying for the embassy paperwork!
*Naomi – the only missing Putnam family member.
