Happy Birthday, Madison!

It’s time to celebrate! My granddaughter, Madison Vaughn, was born on May 5th in South Africa. When her mom and dad called to share the news, my heart soared with excitement and joy! I can’t wait to see her on Skype  and—not soon enough—meet her in person.

When I look at God’s intricate creation in the form of a tiny baby, I can’t help but praise Him for the wonder I behold. And when it’s my own grandchild, my joy overflows and cannot be contained! A new human life is truly the most amazing part of creation, and as her grandmum, the awe and wonder of it all can be simply overwhelming.

What will this new life hold? Who will she be? What has God created her to do? How will being a “missionary kid” in South Africa affect her and make her into who she’ll become? So many BIG questions for such a little life.

The world that Madison just entered is not an easy one, so she’ll need lots of prayer to become the person God wants her to be. As one who loves her dearly, I will pray for this child every single day of my life, and I will enjoy watching these questions get answered. Join me, will you?

“Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you,” Jeremiah 1:5 (The Message).

Welcome to our world, baby girl! I look forward to seeing God’s plans for you!

What prayers do you pray when you see a new little life? I’d love to know.
