Monday's Meditation

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
- Psalm 139:14

As I sat down to begin this post, a wet forced noise came from over my left shoulder in the direction of where my wife was nursing our newborn baby girl. That sound could only mean one thing: That I would have to wait to finish this post because the diaper king was needed.

One of the many things that amazes me about the human condition is that, despite pooping in diapers, we are still fearfully and wonderfully made. Each one of her little toes and fingers, the way her tongue darts this way and that, her week-old facial expressions, her spastic kicks and wild chops remind me of the creative power of God.
