Right now, I know and can locate every freckle on each of my babies. They each just have a about one handful, but 5 freckles on 4 babies is 20 to keep up with and it seems more frequently a new little freckle appears and before long I will lose track of all those freckles. I will however, always remember the 1st freckle to appear on each one of those kids. When they are my age and older I will still look at those 1st freckles and remember them on the pure white snowy soft baby skin. I love watching them grow, but am sad from time to time as I watch them slowly turning from babies into precious children knowing I will never have these moments back again.
I am so thankful to God for the blessings in my life. I struggle to keep up with freckles and I am in awe at the depth and breadth of God's love. A God whose thoughts toward me outnumber the grains of sand on the beach.
"How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you” Psalms 139:17-18
