I Beheld God

I beheld God

In the strength of a mother
     Who labored long and hard
          And in the end released control.

In the love of two parents.

In the tenderness of a father
     Who was a tower of strength
          And exuded calmness in the face of concern.

In the joy of a sister.

In the beauty of a newborn baby, fearfully and wonderfully made.

Lillee Azhinae

Photo by Jeannine Cooper, my amazing photography friend, whose first lily of the season just happened to bloom in front of this sign.

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well." Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV)

What a beautiful tribute to mother, to father, to sibling, to infant - but - mostly - what a beautiful tribute to our Creator. Only He can make Lily and the lily bloom.

Abby was offered the opportunity for an elective C-section because they anticipated possible problems. But she chose to try "on her own" first, and there were a lot of "little miracles" that occurred during that process. We are all so blessed. Thanks.
