Psalms 139:14-18 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
So thankful that our 12th grand child (girl # 8) arrived safe and sound this morning! Mommy had to have a C-section – her fourth, so we were thankful for God’s protection and for a healthy delivery. Mom and baby are fine. Little Karrington Lee weighed in 6 lb. and 4 oz., 19.5 inches long. Hope to see her soon! God is so good and we are certainly fearfully and wonderfully made!
From Psalm 139
Lord, you know me, you know all about me
You know when I sit down or stand up and even each thought is known to thee.
When I go out or when I lay down, you know my way
Even before I speak a word, you know what I’m going to say
You put a hedge around me and always hold my hand
Your greatness is amazing and I just can’t understand
Your spirit is there wherever I go
Whether heaven above or the earth below
If I fly as a bird or cross the wide sea,
Still your hand holds and continues to guide me
The darkness and the night, they cannot hide me
These are the same as light to thee.
You fashioned me and covered me inside of my mother’s womb
You created me there with just enough room.
You alone could see me in that secret place
You wove my parts together from my feet to my face.
From morning to night, I am always in your hand.
You thoughts of me are more than the numbers of the sand.
I will forever praise you for the plan you have for me
Not just here on earth, but for all eternity.
