I am so sorry for all the silence and tumble weeds you have encountered in this blog lately without any explanation. The simple reason has been that life interrupted. Six days ago we were blessed with the birth of our first child – Jenny Madalo (Madalo means Blessings in Chichewa). During the period waiting for her I thought many times I should post something, but then wondered how many people really wanted to read post after post about waiting! So I am hoping that as I adjust to motherhood the posts may start appearing a bit more regularly. However I am well aware that life will continue to interrupt so please bear with me.
Thankfully for God none of these interruptions take Him by surprise. Jenny’s late arrival and her emergency c-section were unknowns to us, but God was already aware. As we waited nearly a week past the due date wondering when she would come, God already had earmarked her birthday. As I look at this little bundle, who loves nothing more than to curl into a ball and sleep close to a heartbeat, I am thankful that her Heavenly Father knows exactly what lies ahead for her. He has been with her before we even knew she existed and every step she will take is known to Him.
Psalms 139:14-16 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.
