I am so pleased to announce the birth of our second grandchild. He arrived three weeks early on Saturday, July 23. He is now two weeks old and we are enjoying him so much.
He eats and sleeps and is growing before our very eyes. Some days I want time to stand still and let him be a newborn for a little longer, and then other days I wonder and imagine and look forward to watching the amazing life God has planned for him unfold. And every day that I hold him, or see a new picture arrive on the screen of my phone, I simply marvel at how God has once again created a new little person that is different from every other one on earth. I am reminded once again of Psalm 139:13-16:
“For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
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.”
Isn’t God just amazing? His creativity and His gifts never end.
I stand in awe of God and this gift He has given William’s parents and our entire family. We are so very grateful.
