"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

I have felt so overwhelmed with gratitude in the past couple months, realizing what a tremendous privilege and honor this is - God's letting us partner with Him in creating and growing this new little person! I don't think I have realized the utter beauty of Psalm 139:13 more than now - and the glory of it is that I have nothing to do with it! In truth, I have no idea what's really going on in there, you know? But He does! How cool is that?
