Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

To say that Isaac was a fluke or happened by chance is absurd, but that is exactly what I heard from many specialists in the beginning. That babies like him were random, a fluke, it just sometimes "happens." Anastacia has been learning sign language at school, and to see her eyes light up with the realization of how God made Isaac left me undone last week. She came in exclaiming "mom, God made Isaac's hand to say I love you, mom he got to tell us I love you."

Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was excellent in every way. Genesis 1:31

The awe in her voice as she realized how amazing His message through Isaac was is humbling. Nothing happens by chance, God pays attention to every detail within creation, nothing escapes Him. It is not up to us to always understand, but rest in knowing that He cares about all of the intimate details of our lives.

Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother's womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. Ecclesiastes 11:5

How majestic was His whisper of love through the creation of that tiny hand with such a precious message. We catch glimpses of His love for us in the beauty of the creation that surrounds us daily. That love has changed and saved me. His love leaves me humbled. He sees the depths of my heart knowing how broken I am and loves me anyway. His love is the same for you. Despite our brokenness, faults, failures, and selfishness He sent His only son for us.
