We are a co sleeping family. Every pregnancy we would buy a baby bed, thinking “oh, this time the baby will sleep on it’s own.” Unfortunately, we lost a great deal of money on cute beds our babies never slept in. Then we would say, “when the baby is 1 for sure!” Yeah, never happened. Neither one of us was ever good about changing the snuggle routine. When we did decide it was time for them to sleep in their own bed, we would sabotage ourselves. The first week I would sleep next to the toddler bed. The next week I would wait till they fell asleep and get in my bed. (depending on if I didn’t fall asleep waiting) Then they would cry, and one of us would lose the battle and bring them in our room. Eventually around preschool they would start sleeping on their own. Well, it is Kobe’s turn to make the transition. I thought it would be easier because he sometimes will sleep with Natalie without too much fuss and then come get in our bed in the middle of the night. A positive is that his bed is in the boys room so he has plenty of company. Well, Kobe has had his bed for 8 days and has not slept through the night in it. Tori tried to encourage him by sleeping in his bed with him the first night. We woke up to find Kobe in our bed and Tori asleep in his. I have to admit we have not completely committed to kicking him out of our bed so it will probably be a bit before the transition is complete.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
