My Heart Wells Up!

I am not known for my cooking skills,
but when it is my husband's birthday, I give it a try.
Last Saturday, my husband turned 53 years old,
and my son, my helper and I tried our hand at making paella.
My husband is the good cook in our family,
and he had to be called in for the tasting and mixing of the sauce.
It tasted great! Thanks to everybody's help,
and the prayers mixed in with the ingredients!
ALWAYS season your food with prayers,
that's my secret!

This is one of my favorite bible verses:
"Truly you have formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother's womb.
I give you thanks
that I am fearfully, wonderfully made!"
Psalm 139:13-14

It's an appropriate verse to meditate on 
when we celebrate birthdays.
Truly, we are all fearfully, wonderfully made!
I am always in awe at how God was very particular
when He formed us in our mother's womb.
Even the hairs on our head are counted!
Our eyelashes and eyebrows serve a purpose-
they protect our eyes from dust and sweat and 
other foreign objects.

And did you know the philtrum,
the indentation above our upper lip,
allows us more lip movement than if we did not have it?

"Look at the birds in the sky;
they do not sow or reap,
they gather nothing into barns
yet your heavenly Father feeds them."
Matthew 6:26

There are millions of things our heavenly Father
does for us, provides for us,
that we take for granted!

If He took care that we have a philtrum so that
we could express ourselves with a wider range with our lips,
what more did He think about for our good?


Jesus is the limitless wellspring of all we need...
fed by the river that flows from the very throne of God.
from the Word Among Us


I sit here thinking of all the things
that God thought of for my benefit,
and my heart wells up!

  3. I used this verse at the beginning of my picture book Tadeo Turtle - Yes - we are loved by our Creator. He did knit us together.
