Ultrasound Changes My View of the World

Last week my daughter sent me an electronic photo of her prenatal ultrasound.

I cannot begin to describe how I felt when I got my first glimpse of my grandbaby-in-the-making. Not quite 3 1/2″ from the top of his* head to the bottom of his rump, he still managed to tilt my world on its axis. (*sex unknown)

I’ve known about my daughter’s pregnancy for quite awhile, of course. But there was something about “seeing” that tiny little baby that really grabbed my heart. He suddenly seems so real! His hands and feet are about 1/2″ long now. Consider how tiny that makes his fingers and toes…and the bones inside them…and the nails on the tips of them!

I can’t help but think of Psalm 139 (New Living Translation):

13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.

Lately I’m thinking God’s greatest miracles are His smallest.
