On many occasions when Asher is content it can be a huge relief. Don't get me wrong i love playing with him and hearing him try to talk. Seeing him smile and laugh is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, but it can be hard work trying to entertain the little fellow.

This morning I felt like I understood why GOD wants us to be content. There Asher sat in his vibe chair content as can be, winding down from a hard 2-3 hour session of waving his arms, trying to talk, standing as I held him on my stomach, and using all the brain power he could muster trying to figure out who he is and how he got on this big round rock floating in outer space.

So just as when I feel relief and peace when Asher is content, I think the same goes for GOD when we are content. GOD is like, finally. Maybe this is why GOD invented sleep. Forced content, it just doesn't get any better than that for GOD and us.

"Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am." - Philippians 4:11
