Planting memory seeds

Today, in memory of lost little footprints, I want to take another day to enjoy building childhood memories.

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.

Psalm 139

I hope you have many more delicate memories and beautiful scriptural inspirations.
I hope this last week of 10 bring peace and closure.

Those words are so incredibly profound and yet at the same time, my heart tells me they are very simple as well. Perhaps all incomprehensible truths are both. :)
Alicia, how can I even say how much goodness and beauty I wish for you and your family in 2011?
Praying each day is a blessing to you.
