I am in shock every single time I hold a new born babe in my hands.
If you really think about it, it is absolutely insane that a complex human body can make another complex human body within itself.
Every strand of hair. Every finger nail. Every cell. Was made from two very small different sources of DNA. How do the cells know what to do? That blows my mind when I think about it too much. So I stop thinking about it and rest knowing that my GOD told the cells what to do.
It reminds me of the first time a human body came into existence. Man was made from... nothing. Well, dirt, which is practically nothing. How did the dirt know what to do? Well thats easy. GOD told it what to do. God made man.
But what is every MORE astounding than the physical creation of man... is the mental, emotional, and spiritual.
"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end." Ecclesiastes 3:11
These are things no scientist can explain. Yes, we have a brain, which gives us a personality and emotions... but there is so much more that makes us who we are. God has placed an awareness and longing for eternity in every single human heart. And while God has done this, He has also not revealed to us all the mysteries of His nature and work from beginning to end. This is to keep us longing, awaiting His return.
Baby Nehemiah was made in the image of God, and has the longing for eternity placed into his heart. I know his mom and dad will do an amazing job of teaching him about all of the great things Jesus has done for us... and soon little Nehemiah will also be staring in wonder at the greatness and goodness of our God who made him.
I know this post is late... but I couldn't help but share some of the sweet photos I got from this Christmas.
Having a big family is hard sometimes. As we get older, it becomes harder and harder to get everyone together for Holidays, or for any days. I am sure everyone with a bigger family can relate to that.
This Christmas we were missing two brothers and two sister-in-laws. It was something that we got as many together as we did!
But one thing is for sure, I am proud to call these crazy people my family. I am so grateful that God has given them to me for every season of life.
