The Incredible Miracle of Life

The Incredible Miracle of Life

My eleventh grandbaby was born yesterday! We are so blessed. I texted all seven of my close college friends the good news with the picture of the precious baby. One of them wrote the following response which I thought was absolutely beautiful!

Birth will ALWAYS brings me to my knees. That sweet little oxygen breathing, nursing, little fellow was in a tight little ball, surrounded by water, in the dark, getting nutrition through his belly button, yesterday! A miracle for all of us to see right in front of our own eyes! Thank you, God, for the most incredible miracle of life. You make it so cute, cuddly, soft, fragrant, precious, vulnerable, and helpless. And You bring out the best of us since You place deep inside each us (Your Image) to love fully, protect, and care for that precious life. You are a good God.

And Lord, you placed your own Son in that vulnerable place and give each of us the ultimate choice to love or hate, recognize a miracle or somehow think we could make life. We so often grab our gifts and turn our backs from the Gift Giver.

We all were able to experience life growing in us and we had nothing to do with it except partner with Him and care for that life growing within. WHAT A PRIVILEGE! And our men just got to have fun! 😉

Let us never take for granted what our guys do for us EVERY day to make it possible for us to care for, love, and enjoy our families.

I’m rambling…

Let us each be GRATEFUL in our joy!

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
Psalm 139:13

  1. Congratulations on the blessing of a new grandson. May he be a blessing to others. I was intrigued to see that you have seven close college friends. At least you derived one huge benefit from going to college.

  2. Congratulations on a new Grandbaby! Wonderful response from your fried. I read the post with a big smile on my face. Thank you for sharing and a blessed start in to the new year.

  3. Congratulations!

    What do you mean men just got to have fun? I don’t think my husband was having too much fun while I was in labor (he was quite anxious), and once our son was here he was on daddy duty during nights and working hard during the day! We both had some fun moments during my pregnancy, yet he was working extra hours to make sure we had everything we needed.

    Perhaps you mean the act of making the baby? God made the act fun for men AND women and I am sure blessed to have a husband who makes sure I have as much fun as he does (*wink*)!

  4. Congratulations, Lori and Ken! What a wonderful way to start the New Year. My husband and I pray it won’t be long until we experience the joy of being grandparents. So happy for you and your family.

  5. Lori (My VT2) Praise God for your new grandbaby blessing! What beautiful words – thank you for sharing! Oh what joy you all must be experiencing! God is so good! Love to you!

  6. Weddings and babies born, two of the best events that make me want to laugh and cry all at once! Congratulations on your new grandbaby, enjoy every moment. God bless, and Happy New Year!!

  7. When I saw my first daughter born — I was the first to see her, the nurses were busy.

    I saw her little head come out. Her skin looked like purple rubber, her face was still…like a doll. Not alive. Suddenly I saw her skin turn bright pink, and her face animated and came alive with a baby frown. And I felt a great force push back into my body, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck and my heart started hammering in my chest and I gasped for breath. I will never ever forget that moment, it was both terrifying and exalting…and I am not easily scared.

    All I could think was — “I just saw a holy moment. I saw God put the breath of life into my baby.” It was so clear what I had just seen.

    That was the day I became a Christian.
