So I’m in Birmingham and just left the hospital where my best and longest friend, Robin Bobo Redding, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
I can’t figure out their computer or I’d post some pictures… that will have to wait.
What a beautiful picture of life, though. Robin and I met when we were babies ourselves, and here we are nearly 29 years later, and she has a child of her own. I’m so grateful for those friendships that truly last a lifetime. I don’t have many of those, as I would imagine not many people are blessed with more than one or two.
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 works 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.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Psalm 139: 13-17
