He Runs Through the Night For Her (Lessons in Bravery)

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!” Isaiah 6:8

My two oldest children, four and six, share a room far enough away from my own upstairs bedroom that my husband and I keep a monitor on so we can hear if they need us in the middle of the night.  My son has bad dreams or wakes for one reason or another several nights a week.  He calls and we stagger downstairs to reassure and then everyone drifts gratefully back to sleep.
There are times, though, that we forget to turn on the monitor or we accidentally leave the volume down too low and we miss my son’s slow, repetitive cry.

 “Mama, Dada, Mama, Dada.”

  1. Great post, Kelly.

  2. Thanks for sharing Kelly. Thinking about Solomon and his love for Sophia as well as his brothers brings tears to my eyes. Happy tears.

    1. He's a greatbig brother, I hope he can see that someday.

  3. You have a blessed gifting with words. This moved me very deeply. What a beautiful representation of Christ your little son is. He runs through the night for her just as Jesus ran through the night for us. This has touched me deeply. Thank you.

    This is my first time visiting your blog and I can't remember which blog hop I found you through but I will most definitely return.

    God Bless.
