God's mercy and grace nestled snugly inside its temporary home. An amazing gift of God being nurtured by an earthly mother and cared for lovingly by a heavenly Father.
A tiny miracle. Wrapped up in lots of love.
I glanced at my youngest daughter lying on the table. She was intently looking at the miracle of life unfolding inside her and displayed on the screen. She looked up at me and smiled. I smiled back. A knowing smile of being amazed at God's goodness. Being overwhelmed at His love. A smile that signifies a love already so deep for the tiniest of miracles.
This gift of life is not new to her and her husband. This is their third child. At the tender age of 21, she is a seasoned and amazing mother of 2 precious little boys.
But the awe of it never gets old. The graciousness of God and His bountiful blessings bestowed upon us is still amazing. Still overwhelming. Still astounding.
The gift of new life. Never to be taken for granted. Never to be looked at as anything less than a miracle. Always to be seen as one of the greatest gifts of our Lord. Created by Him and for Him. Created for His glory.
The miracle of life.
"... all things were created by Him, and for Him; He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together" (Colossians 1:17 NIV)Thank you, Lord, for this amazing gift of life. Thank you for your love and your blessings. We give you all praise and glory for the wonder of this miracle.
