Each one of you a masterpiece...

For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well. (Psalm 139:13, 14 AMP)

If there is one thing I want you to know my boys, it's this - You are wonderfully made.. When God created you He was delighted and I can imagine Him loving every moment of it. He had planned the exact timing of when you would be given to us, and He has all your days written down already. I want you to know how amazing this is - that the God of the Universe is concerned with every little detail of your being and your life...

You were created to His image and He loves you more than anyone of us will ever be able to comprehend...

Yesterday a #royalbaby was born into the British Royal family. Everyone is delighted and in awe. My boys, if only they realized that all of you are Royal babies! And this I want you to know..

Your Heavenly Father is the King of the Universe! And that makes you a prince! We are all born into this world, but we are created for more than what this world could ever offer us.
And God delights in you more than we can ever begin imagining and more than the world could ever delight in this royal baby.

As I was watching Jaydon enjoying every second of drawing his pictures, concentrating on coloring his crocodile and the delight when he showed me his final attempt, I could not help but wonder at how God must delight in each one of us. I can imagine Him singing when He forms us in our mother's womb and every time just being in awe of every one of his masterpieces. Because my boys that is what you are, we are, each one a masterpiece made by our Father. And my prayer today is that you will never forget this, that you will never loose focus of Whose you are because you belong to a King who gave you His life and who knows your every thought before it even came to you. He is more concerned with every detail of your life than anyone in this world could ever be.

I love you so much my boys, I cannot begin to tell you how it means having you in our lives and even more so does our God.

Today, 4 weeks ago we learned the news that your unborn brother would never be ours to hold. That he would far too soon join our Heavenly Father in heaven. My heart still aches when I think about it, but I also know that he. is. now. perfect. he is living in the glory of just being with God and one day we will all be together in our heavenly home, perfect and without any sorrow and we will also then understand why he was taken from us so soon. He is with your sister, a princess, also taken too soon. And yet I know I am so very blessed. I have you here on earth with me, my two beautiful little princes, and in heaven your brother and sister who are watching over us.

So today as the world celebrates a baby born unto the Royal family, I am celebrating all of you. Each one of you, the two of you I can hold and kiss and delight in, and the two already fulfilling the purpose we are all ultimately created for- Bringing glory to our father and King in heaven.

I'm linking up with Behind the scenes, Transformed Tuesdays and Titus2Tuesdays today. Go over, have a look and join in.

  1. How sweet you are to take the time to reflect on how wonderfully made they truly are. I know I get too caught up in the day to day and forget to praise the Father for these beautiful gifts of children.

    1. So true Lindsey. We have to remind ourselves constantly, or the every day things just takes over...

  2. Oh this is beautiful. My blog and my children's book - both celebrate the fact that God made us - we are special in His eyes. If we all knew this - there would be peace and joy.
    Hope you drop by my blog and take a look at Tadeo Turtle - the crafts on Saturday and Sunday Stillness too.
    I am following you from Picture and a Snapshot.

  3. Hello from your neighbour at Transformed Tuesday! So lovely to 'meet' you. This is just such a beautiful post! We live in England and the hype over the new royal is quite something, yet your very sentiments kept playing through my mind the whole week, from the moment we heard that Kate was admitted into hospital! BTW - We are South African too, from Cape Town :o)
