On a personal note...

I'm thrilled to announce to all my blog readers that Shannon and I are expecting the birth of our first early next year. As some of you know, it's been a difficult journey and we didn't want to announce the news generally until mommy and baby made it to month four. We just got back from the doctor's office and everything looks great!

I couldn't help but reflect on Psalm 139 as I watched the grainy images of our child today. 3000 years (more or less) before ultrasound was invented David got it right.

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.


Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV)
