Simply Amazing!

The Exclamation Point Yesterday Rich and I drove to San Diego to get our first ultrasound “peek” at our forthcoming grandchild. [Full disclosure: edited at 2 pm to add ultrasound photo of the new baby.]

I’ve written before about spotting God in car accidents, in the gift of socks, in illness and death. In times of trial, it’s often in retrospect that I see His hand on my life.

Last night, as I gazed on the images of this new member of our family, His presence was nearly overwhelming. Not only has God blessed us with this baby, He’s granted us the skill to create technology so we can view the baby when it’s no bigger than my fist.

Simply amazing.

I call this baby our “exclamation point.” A few weeks ago I wrote about God providing a mate for my daughter, an answer to my prayers, and I recounted how I’d discovered that Rob’s mom and sister had been praying for a mate for him, too.

Elaine and Rob learned that they’d been blessed with this little life about a month after wedding planning began. Now that’s an exclamation point!

Oh, and by the way….our new grandbaby?

It’s a boy!!!

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed. Psalm 139:13-16 (NLT)
