WFW ~ Before you were born...

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart

~ Jeremiah 1:5

I remember letting this verse fall over me a few years ago... God knew me first! He knew I was there even before my mom had the slightest inkling that I was growing inside of her. He knew I who I was even before my mom, my grandma.... were born. How cool is that.

Last week I asked you to pray for Sarah, her husband and her family. Today I ask you to pray again and offer up praises and prayers of Thanksgiving. Visit Sarah for wonderful news and a wonderful picture!!!!

Sarah's sister Christy has a wonderful blog as well! Congratulate her as well - she will be Aunt Christy!!!

Praising God today for the gift of life!

I have often thought of how cool it is that He did know me before....and He made me anyway.:)

He is so good!

I am left without words on how your comment and then your post have moved me. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers and support by so many people I have "met" recently. Mike and I consider ourselves truly blessed to have this baby on the way and to have so many people standing with us! Thank you again! You have touched my life!
