For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
   Wonderful are your works;
    my soul knows it very well.
 My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
    intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
 Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
    the days that were formed for me,
    when as yet there was none of them.

 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
 If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
    I awake, and I am still with you.

Psalm 139:13-18

Today (Sunday) is our celebration of becoming grandparents for the very first time!  Shortly after 7 AM Eastern time in New York City where they lived at the time, Caroline Blake Smith was born…11 years ago.

It was a big day!  Later that same day, her grandfather retired from the church he had served for 16 years.  It was a very emotional day.

Now we have 7 grandchildren all the way down to 2 years old.  Little did we know how far our extended family would spread.  Now we have 5 beautiful granddaughters 11, 8, 5, 5, 2 and two handsome grandsons 8 and 4 1/2.

This Scripture simply reminds us how involved GOD is in the details of our development in the womb…and how precious His thoughts are to us.  What a comfort!

Happy Birthday Caroline!
