Today as everybody else celebrates Valentine’s Day, Hubby and I celebrate a more important event. In 2008 we got the best gift ever on VD – our first baby, Isaac. As I look back over his first 3 years, I’m so grateful for him and for all we’ve come through. He didn’t have an easy entrance into the world though but through it all, God was faithful and as we celebrate his birthday I wanted to share his story with you to encourage you in whatever season you find yourself in today.
God is faithful. Period. His mercy towards us is constant and His love is overwhelming. He will never let you down if you put your trust in Him. It’s as simple as that.I was post-term and so I ended up in the hospital hooked me up to the dreaded pitocin and put on a monitor. After only 2 hours of minor contractions as I was laying there I heard his heartbeat drop. I looked up and it was down at 19 from around 155!!! Needless to say I was a little nervous! The nurse came in and altered my position but when 10 minutes later it went down to 50 after another minor contraction I knew what was next. In fact I think I said something like, “Could someone get a knife?!”
