Things Do Happen For A Reason, That's God!

I wouldn't say I'm still shaking this morning, more or less just in awe over what happened in the middle of the night. I normally sleep well through the night, however this morning I felt God telling me to wake up. It was more like "WAKE UP!!!" I sat straight up in bed and looked over at my clock. It said 4:30 am! I sat there for a few seconds, looked over at Dave snoring and sleeping like a log, then laid back down. I could hear Sophia's little feet moving in bed like normal when she repositions herself and then it happened again. This time it was "GET UP!" I am so sleep deprived I would normally just go back to sleep but I knew I needed to get out of that bed because I was being told to. I walked casually over to Sophia and looked in on her. Imagine my surprise when all I saw was her body laying there and no head. Somehow our little 3 month old had taken her blanket and pulled it all the way over top of her head. She was fighting like mad, arms extended straight out, bowed back and sort of a silently grunting I believe from fear because this blanket was over her head. The blanket covered no other part of her body but her neck and her whole head. I don't understand other than grabbing it over and over or getting her fingers caught in the crochet how she could have pulled the blanket so far and that was the only thing it covered.
I took it quickly off of her and she started breathing normally again. I waited there with her until she started dozing off. I wanted so much to wake Dave right then and tell him however I waited until 6:10 this morning. lol As soon as my alarm went off and he started getting up for the day I told him. After discovering a few weeks back that we are on two spiritually different levels than what I originally thought, I am making every effort for him to see that things don't just happen by chance or luck....it's God.
Here's Sophia this morning with her killer blanket.

Wow that made my heart race just reading it! I am so grateful in my life for the soft whisperings of God. I can't count the number of times when I've heard his "voice" and as a result I've changed an action or made a decision based on that feeling. Good for you for listening to it!!

That is so amazing. I know how powerful it is hearing God's voice and it never ceases to amaze me the way He shows Himself to us. I love hearing the ways He shows himself to others. I'm so thankful that He did that for you as well and that Sophia is ok because of it!

Incredible...Thank GOD you listened to HIM!!! I highly recommend the sleep sack, too. My SIL made me two of them and we use them all the time. WOW.
