Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. --John Milton

When Life First Sparks

So Little One, I'll tell you a story.

In the very beginning, God said, "Let there be light." And there was dazzling, swirling, blazing, spectacular light.

Now let me tell you your story. In the very beginning of you, God said, "Let there be life." And with His Word and a flash you suddenly were.

The power of His Word swirls through you, extending fingers, connecting neurons. And as he spoke into the primal darkness, as he spoke into Israel's despair, as he spoke into a virgin's womb - He spoke you.

And there was light.

Enjoy this with fresh wonder ...

The burst of light at the moment of conception
