It was such a pleasure. A beautiful surprise.
And I thought of David's song, The Beginning of You -- the title song of his CD.
It was not by chance when you first opened your eyes.
And it was no mistake your face shined like the sun.
To this world you may have been a beautiful surprise
But it was known even before then, the treasure you'd become...
And some day I hope you see
That day was meant to be.
It was more than just the start of something beautiful
It was more than just a gift to the world
It was more than just a masterpiece or dream coming true
It was... the beginning of you.
Surely the Lord knit us together in our mother's womb. He makes no mistakes, he is never surprised. By His design we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and all of the days of our lives are ordained by Him. Not by chance, but often, a beautiful surprise...to the world.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Ps. 139:23-24
