"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your words are wonderful, I know that full well My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. " Psalm 139 (13-16)
I have five children. My first four were born with little drama. We were a family of six for five years. Never planning on any more children, we were sailing. I have read these words many times before. They were written on birth announcements and I believed every single word with all my heart. God MADE them all. He formed them, "knit" them together. Cool! I have to say that these verses took on a whole new meaning when I found out that Hutton would have a bad heart. Among my pleas to God, I would hear, " PERFECTLY MADE" being whispered in my ear. PERFECT. Hutton is a perfect creation of God. Hutton's terribly disfunctional heart is a perfect creation of Gods. It was a surprise to us but I rest knowing that none of it was a suprise to Him. Just like Hutton sailing through her stage 1 and 2 surgeries was no suprise to Him either. Her days have been planned and He is holding his precious lamb in his hands. She has the perfect heart that was intented for her made by HIM. How special that is. Tonight I am thankful for her perfect little nose, her perfect little toes, her perfect little smile, and her perfect little heart. Thanks be to GOD!
