In Like A Lamb

In the midst of a bad week, personally,  (I won't bore you with it all), I had a HUGE blessing!

My sister, who happens to be my best friend and lives next door, gave birth to her fifth, yep #5, baby this week. He was born March 1st.  After a lot of thought, and baby name books, she finally named him.  She had to before they would let her take him home! 

His name is Samuel.  I have been in the delivery room, holding an epidural induced dead leg, each time.  When I saw his sweet little face I told her he looked like a Sam.  She had several names picked out, but none seemed to fit him like Samuel.  His middle name, Donald, is for a family member that we all love and look up to so much.  He is also my sister's godfather.

He is a tough little fellow.  He was 36 weeks, but weighed 7lbs. 6oz. and 21 inches long.  He came out crying and had no problems.  I have witnessed this 5 times, my babies were C-Section babies, and it just absolutely amazes me every time.

I think anyone walking around on this earth that doesn't believe in God should witness the birth of a baby.  If you can watch that and still think there is no God, then there is just no hope for you. 

I had a rough week, but Samuel is God's way of reminding me to put things into perspective.  I am a very stubborn person, but I had to pay attention to this message! 

It is a gray, gloomy Saturday here in Georgia, (a little symbolic of some of my week), but I have a beautiful, healthy little nephew next door that shines over the weather today!  I am going to go breath in some of that purity, innocence, and God's way of saying, "Never mind the little problems, pay attention to your blessings!"

Great post! I'm SO glad you commented and shared your blog with me! My sister is a divorced mom of 3 children. I just don't know how she does it! And how do you find time to blog! Great blog, by the way! Sometimes I feel like my blog is a one sided conversation, so thanks for reading!
