I’m standing next to you
as you talk to our friend
listening to your sweet voice
watching your expressions
gazing at your lovely profile
and I feel depth
and hear a Bible verse in my mind
at the same time
“You knit me together
in my mother’s womb…”
And in the standing
and the socializing
and the regular life
I gasp inside
at the miracle that is you
were knit together by God
inside of me
this lovely young woman
were designed purposefully
and I was the vessel
gratefully used to bring you here
You have no idea
I’m thinking any of these thoughts
that I am reflecting in wonder
at who you are
by truth once again
are a part of me
and we are created
– Susie Stewart
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, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with You.
– Psalm 139:13-18 (NIV)

Love the thoughtful sentiment of awe and wonder when we stop to ponder our priviledge of bearing our children and the awesome responsibility we have as a result!
