We always did our nurseries in a neutral theme that would work for both genders, so I never had a chance to buy something so frilly and pink.
Yet, now my brother and his wife do. They are expecting a little GIRL in January! I am thrilled to have the chance to go out and buy little pink things all over again. My girls still love pink, but itty, bitty pink clothes and blankets are just so much fun!
So, in honor of Aleah's pending arrival, here's my scripture passage for this Sunday:
13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother's womb.
I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I'd even lived one day.
17-22 Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful!
God, I'll never comprehend them!
I couldn't even begin to count them—
any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!
Psalm 139:13-22 (Msg)
