Holding Baby Owen

Owen Augustine Woodall.  Born on March 9, 2011.  6 lbs  14 oz   19 inches long.

Psalm 139: 13-16 “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

The birth of my second son, Owen, was an incredibility different experience for me.  My 1st delivery was long, painful, and the recovery felt like forever.  Owen’s delivery was the exact opposite.  It was short, not as painful :), and I am feeling great already.  As Psalm 139 states, every moment of Owen’s life is formed by God.  As I sit and rock Owen I find myself praying for him and the struggles that might be ahead for him.  I pray for his relationship with his older brother Conner, for his elementary school days and the dreaded middle school days.  I pray for his high school friends, his dating relationships, and his wife.  Each time of prayer begins with stress about what might come, but then I end remembering that God is the one who ordained his days and He is the one that holds Owen’s life in His hands; Even if I am holding him in mine right now.  Jesus Loves you baby Owen and so does your mama.
