My daughter Jennifer, due to deliver her baby last Saturday, went to the hospital today (Tuesday) to be induced. So sometime later today, or perhaps early tomorrow, I anticipate that I'll be holding my fifth grandchild in my arms!
Jennifer and her husband Tim didn't want to know the sex of the baby ahead of time. So it'll be a big surprise and a wonderful blessing either way, boy or girl.
What we DO know is that God created this child's inmost being; he knit him or her together in Jennifer's womb. He or she was fearfully and wonderfully made. This child's frame was not hidden from God when he or she was made in the secret place. When he or she was woven together in the depths of the earth, God's eyes saw that unformed body. All the days ordained for this child were written in God's book before one of them came to be.
"How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!" (Psalm 139:13-17)
