She had just laid Nicky down for a nap and determined to not pick him up in the event he cried. Too much of that and your kid will never learn to fall asleep on his/her own. She crossed the hall to play with Daniel and build some towers with blocks. Nicko started to cry and even as she was thinking "let him go", she stood up to check on him. When she walked into the room, she felt an urgency to remove him from the room immediately, even though he was sound asleep again (within seconds!) The same urgency, she said, as if the room were on fire. She scooped him up and laid him on Daniel's bed, and now he's crying. "What Mom wakes up a finally sleeping infant?", she asked me. Then she walked back into the nursery to see what in the world her problem was...and the shelf fell out of the wall and into the crib! She said she just stood there with her jaw to the floor.
I'm still at a loss for words. How Cool that God would choose to spare us the potential trauma that little Nicky could have experienced, by impressing on Sarah to act contrary to logic. Granted we still have accidents and bruises and spilt blood, and tragic things happen to God's children every day. But every once in a while, God reminds us that He IS involved in our daily lives...and that He's watching over us!
Any "God Stories" out there? Where it was obvious that God stepped in?
