Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic ~ Alaskan Birth

Whales Music Box

Whale Music Box

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him
Psalm 127:3

Twenty years ago today, I gave birth to my son in Homer, Alaska.  Since he was my little Alaskan baby, I decorated his nursery in a whale theme.  The nostalgia associated with the whale music box tugs at my heart, because I played it every time I rocked him in my arms.  It plays the song, Love Makes the World Go Round.  I still remember singing along with the tune like it was yesterday. 

Children really do grow up in a blink.

The following verse is a special promise God gave to me years ago about my son, and one that I have watched Him fulfill:

I was cast upon Thee from the womb: Thou art my God from my mother’s belly.
Psalm 22:10

I pray blessings over you, my son, and for many more years on this earth.  You are a gift from God. 

P.S.  Happy Birthday, my no-longer-little Alaskan!

Friday Feature (With a Surprise)

Feature Friday

“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.”
Psalm 139:13
NLT

Today’s feature is somewhat different.  While normally used to showcase one of my favorite blogs, today’s post is uniquely different.  Typically, I plan to highlight another Christian author, or perhaps even someone gifted in inspirational photography, graphics or music; today, however, I present a work by Someone of the Utmost caliber.  Unlike all others, this Friday Feature surpasses the rest.

Author of the most important Book ever written, I present One who He excels above all in talent.  There is no wisdom, understanding or counsel against Him.  Not only is He the Author, He is also Master Craftsman, Intricate Knitter, and Supreme Creator.  Quite honestly, if I were to list every fabulous quality about this One, and to tell of His wondrous glory, the number of words left to read would split the Internet wide open.  His Name needs no introduction because it is a Name above all Names, but just in case someone reading this post has never heard of or met Him, I introduce Jesus Christ, the only One True God.

Although I usually post a link directing readers to a site, today’s Featured Guest has no need of a website to share His portfolio of talent.  One need only gaze upward into the heavens to view His spectacular canvas, or look down at the lilies of the field to appreciate His grand designs.

The Surprise

If those magnificent works of Creation are not convincing proof as to His excellent greatness, though, I have posted below an amazing glimpse of one of His splendid works in progress.  The predicted completion date is June of 2013.  I trust you will marvel with the grandparents at this masterpiece on display.  More than anything, however, I pray that if you haven’t already, you will acknowledge Jesus as Lord of all, and surrender your life to Him.

Our grandson, due in June

*If you feel a tugging at your heart to know Christ, it is His Holy Spirit drawing you to Himself.  There is only One Way to heaven and that is through Jesus.  He’s calling you to give Him your life. Talk to Him from Your heart:
