Earlier this morning, Vanessa's contractions had accelerated to more than 10 and hour. Their doctor requested that they go into the hospital for further observation. Please pray with us that the contractions would stop. The contractions are currently 1 minute apart from each other.
Jason educated me on the wonders of having children. Currently, Vanessa is 31 weeks into her term. She must go at least 34 weeks for the babies to have the possibility of breathing on their own.
As I spoke to Jason on the phone, I hear the heart monitor ringing periodically. The frequency was beautiful and moving. God is the designer of all life. He is an artist and architect far greater than we can imagine. He is the engineer of all things; the foreman and sculptor that we should never take for granted.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, Psalms 19. 1-4.144 beats per minute never sounded so lovely once you realize that God has directed the music that hits your ears.
Jason and Vanessa will be updating me as the evening progresses.
Please join us in earnest prayer as God's work is mighty. He will glorified in the outcome and He alone is sovereign. Please pray for peace and strength for their family.
With love and devotion, from a satellite heart to our Savior above. Antonio (Uncle Toe Toe/Toby/Little Tony)
