Alaina update

In June 2009, a wonderful friend gave birth to her precious daughter, Alaina. While the pregnancy was normal, the delivery was not. To make a long story short, Alaina was on the verge of life & death at her birth. She had ingested meconium & her little lungs were fighting for air. Stephanie & her husband, Scotlon, endured several weeks of NICU praying that their 1st born would survive.

Fast forward to November 2009. Alaina is a beautiful & healthy little monster. She's the sweetest baby, full of laughs & smiles. I'm thrilled at the chance to babysit her.

While feeding Alaina today, I started thinking about her rough start to this world & the many prayers that went up in her name. Clearly, God had another plan for this precious child. I cannot wait to see how He uses her. I will admit that Alaina was in the hands of some fabulous nurses & doctors, but all of the glory needs to go straight to God.

The song that comes to mind - HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD.
Name above all names
Worthy of our praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God
Many blessings,

Lyrics | Chris Tomlin lyrics - How Great Is Our God lyrics
