Have Patience

Annabeth sings this song to Bolt all the time.

"Have patience, have patience, don't be in such a hurry. When you get impatient, you always start to worry. Remember, remember, that God is patient too. And think of all the times when others have to wait for you."

This song couldn't be more appropriate for the week that we are spending at the hospital waiting on our twins boys. It seems as if Mack and Birk are quite comfortable inside mama. We were told last Thursday that Annabeth could go into labor at any moment. After a weekend of no action, Annabeth went in for a check up and was told that the babies are on their way. Six days later...still no action.

The doctor gave us a great perspective a few days ago. He said that he would rather have the babies inside mama then in the NICU. Great point.

Although this week has been crazy tough, we are completely at peace with God's plan for these boys. Who knows what this week has done for our little dudes?

My buddy Dustin is preaching for me tomorrow. He is preaching on the life of David out of I Samuel and his focus is on Trusting God. Here are his 3 points: 1) Trust the power of God's name. 2) Trust God's sovereignty. 3) Trust God's purpose. / We trust you, Jesus.

Thanks everyone for all the prayers. We will keep you posted on our journey over the next week.


  1. Keeping you in prayers. I was at Mission Lab on Bolts birthday when we got to sing. What a blessing that week was. It is amazing how God works in a week;-) Blessing on your family!

  2. Hey guys, I talked to Grace the other day on the phone - was great to catch up. I'm praying with you! I know the feeling in many ways. Love to you :) - Kristi

  3. Rob and Annabeth, thanks for the update—and for starting this blog. We're eager to stay up to date with y'all from up on this end of the Mississippi. Know that y'all are in our prayer and frequent thoughts.

    Much love from Minnesota,
    David, Megan, Cole, Carson

  4. Annabeth, I can only begin to imagine how you feel after being there for a week and no babies yet... I continue to pray for you and your healthy baby boys and can't wait to see pics of them! Hang in there - you're so right about God's perfect timing! :) and...I love that little song you sing to Bolt, just may have to start singing that one! love, Ann

  5. Annabeth, I know that the waiting can be so hard. I have never had to have a baby in the NICU, but I am sure that your Dr. is right. I will pray for you this week for God's perfect timing. Hang in there!

  6. I love your blog! SO awesome!!! I can't imagine how hard the waiting is....praying for you!
