today as i was reading one of my birthing books, i began to think about the Scripture I wanted to have picked out and ready to be read to me during labor. i came to Psalm 139 and was deeply moved. with this little life force kicking within my womb, its verses took on a whole new meaning for me. and in the light of january being Sanctity of Life month, i thought i would share these beautiful verses of Scripture:
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.
