When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
This incredible God who has made all these intricacies, alongside the huge fire-balls of stars. THAT God cares for me... for my family... for my little ones. Incredible. Breathtaking.
And watching the pinnacle of his creation - people - who he made in his image has been the most breathtaking of all. Watching this little person - so helpless and vulnerable - turn into this little personality with bundles of energy - wriggles and laughs and tantrums and sleepy cuddles - has been such an incredible journey. And now she's starting to SAY things... I caught her the other day with her dolly on her lap rocking backwards and forwards and singing "row, row, row..." on repeat. I mean, when did that little newborn learn to do that?! She comes out with words in german and norwegian and english and I'm left astounded at this God who has made a little human brain capable of picking up these words in three languages at such a young age (I mean, I knew this whole trilingual thing would work... but seeing it actually happening before our eyes is OH so very exciting!)
Anyway... here is my daughter's rendition of "Row Row" with her dolly... I hope you enjoy and I'm only sorry I didn't grab my camera quicker as I only caught the tail end of it! The video was originally about 30 seconds long, but somehow my laptop is playing up and has cut it down to 4 seconds (the first 4 seconds before I managed to get it in focus!) Still... you'll get the idea!
