This has been a grueling week. When I take pause to remember Schaeffer’s infancy, it seems as though we’ve gone soft. It would be commonplace to juggle multiple appointments, feedings and spit up–all on a mere 2 hours of sleep.

To do this now, seems-well, inconceivable. We’ve been struggling to ‘share’ night duty & resemble humans in the daytime hours. How spoiled we’ve gotten. How complacent & lazy.
Perhaps it was time for a shake-up, a wake-up call. Will we now learn so that the next time it won’t have to come at the high cost of the health of our beloved?
“So, what a blessing when God steps in and corrects you! Mind you, don’t despise the discipline of Almighty God! True, he wounds, but he also dresses the wound; the same hand that hurts you, heals you.From one disaster after another he delivers you; no matter what the calamity, the evil can’t touch you” Job 5:17-19MSG
