miracle of life

Today, my sister-in-law, Kristen, gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Merritt Vance. Is there any greater miracle than that of life itself? When I held him, every detail – his almost invisible eyelashes, his upturned nose, his miniature fingernails – all seemed so…perfect. One moment the world continued to turn without him and the next moment he was here!

The Psalmist writes, “You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (139:16)

Somewhere, in the massive library of heaven, God has now authored a book entitled, “Merritt”. The book holds every day of his priceless life. The pages foretell of the day he will take his first step, the day he will learn to ride a bike and the day he will hold his own baby. But for now, we will all just enjoy the miracle of…

day one.
