Is anything too hard for the Lord?

I mean really, can't He do anything? Like take a baby girl who one nurse who first had her told us she didn't expect to see us for very long because Sara wouldn't make it and now that same baby girl is alive and thriving. Or take a baby girl who possibly would never be able to suck and now tonight she not only sucked, but nursed for 30 minutes!!! Is anything too hard for Him?

Jennifer was amazed, blown away, mystified, and overjoyed. She kept saying - She's really doing it! For 30 minutes the sweet harmony of a babe and a mother's breast rang through the NICU. And it was sweet. She took to it and stayed there, even wanting to return when it was removed. Unbelievable!

She also has continued to hold her temp well all day. Her weight is now 2097 grams (4lbs 9oz).

One other reason this was a milkshake Monday (oh yeah, it was good) - Sara got a new cousin today - Elisabeth Rachel. 8lbs and 15 oz with 2 older brothers. They are all well and happy and we are happy too.


  1. Your baby girl has been quite a fighter. Her leaps and bounds have just amazed me and to be nursing at 33 weeks gestation. All I can say is WOW! God is truley amazing. God bless you, your family and Baby Sara.

  2. 1 Corinthians 2:9
    "No one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love him"
    Peace and Grace,
