Celebrating New Life

Celebrating New Life

My sister, sister-in-law, and I recently had a baby shower for my younger sis. It's her first child and we are so excited about baby Patch! We had a lot of fun planning her shower. Every mommy deserves a fun time to celebrate the new life within her.

It took a lot of time and energy planning the baby celebration. Designing and mailing invitations, preparing food and games, wrapping gifts, buying and making decorations....all of these thing took time, energy, and cost. We wanted it all to be perfect! 

In comparison, how much more time and energy does Our Father take when creating us and our babies (knitting us together). Babies are all created beautifully by God. They are all a blessing. The most precious gift from God.

 Psalm 139:13-16
 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

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days
ordained for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.


This was a joke since my sister is gluten free.

What a special gift to have something handmade with love to put on your newborn. Every mother should receive a handmade gift for her new baby. A store bought item is thoughtful as well, but nothing compares to the time and care it takes to make a baby gift.

When I had my first child, I was so worried about everything. I wasn't sure if I would be a good mom or if I could provide what my babies needed. I looked to this promise that matter how much we worry and fret about our babies, God tells us We are worth more than many  sparrows and will take care of them...and us. This verse gave me peace.

Prayers for you & your babies,
