Psalm 139:14-18 and Ezekiel 37:14
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
And I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I am the Lord;I have spoken, and I will do it, declares the Lord.”
Wonderful words as we celebrate life, J’s 2nd birthday today and await the arrival of our youngest any day now. Our children are gifted to us, but created and life breathed by God and love to follow their maker’s creativity.
