Happy Birthday.....

The 139th Psalm is one of my very favorites.....for lots of reasons.  
One is that the night before our kids boarded a plane for Uganda in 2012, 
I read this part of the Psalm to them.....
verses 7-10.....

I can never escape from your Spirit!

    I can never get away from your presence!
If I go up to heaven, you are there;
    if I go down to the grave,you are there.
If I ride the wings of the morning,
    if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
10 
even there your hand will guide me,
    and your strength will support me.

Today is a special day for me.....
'cause it's my birthday!!!
So, I want to share these verses from Psalm 139.....
verses 13-18.....


You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. 
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. 
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
    They cannot be numbered! 
I can’t even count them;
    they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
 you are still with me!



Breathing in Jesus,

Deb
