Fearfully & Wonderfully Made

Written to my heavenly son Tre': 



It is hard to believe that you would have been 7 years old today.  Its seems like not long ago you were a baby and just yesterday that we gave you back to the Lord at the tender age of 4.  


Psalm 139 verses 13 through 16 still resonates in my mind as I think about your birth day. 


13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  
15 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, 
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.



I obtain comfort in knowing that God knew you would be born with Edward's Syndrome (Trisomy 18) before you came to earth.  Wow! All your days were written in God's book!  Although your first few days, weeks and even months were intimidating, you triumphed over your struggles.  We saw God heal your heart, re-shape your hands and give you a smile that could melt the most rigid heart.  He even healed you of the cancer although not here on earth.  We thank God for the miracles he performed in you and the lives of our family too.  We miss you dear but you are always near in pictures and memories we hold close to our hearts.  


Love,
Mommy
