God Is Good and My Sweet Baby Boy

I haven't written in a long time, but in my defense I've been a little busy. Busy having a baby and not getting any sleep.

I have to say God is good because of how He has blessed me these last couple of months.

First, my little Asher was only two weeks early instead of 4 or 5. He had a perfect apgar score which I was happy with because it meant he was healthy.

Second, there were no problems breastfeeding. He latched on perfectly although painfully and his weight gain has been amazing (2 lbs. in a month).

Thirdly, Alexander and Ashley haven't gotten jealous and have been wonderful with him.

And fourthly(it could be a word), Asher just started sleeping through the night.

You read in the bible how faithful God is and how He loves to bless His people and then we are actually surprised when he answers our prayers.

I prayed constantly that Asher would be healthy and that breastfeeding would go o.k. but I was actually surprised when it all happened. I had been keeping God in this little box expecting Him not to meet my expectations when He surpassed them!

It has taught me not to underestimate God. I bet it's insulting to Him and totally ridiculous on my part. To think that the God who created the heavens and the Earth couldn't or wouldn't do what I prayed. Well God IS Good!
