Life and Death

Had our share of new babies and deaths this month.  With more babies just around the corner I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on the miracle of life itself.  My new-mother-again-sister-in-law summed it up better than I could.  Reposted from her blog:

“Life has taken on a slower more relaxed pace with Emma here.  The crazy, run-around, hectic pace of early December hasn’t come back and we’re liking that.  Having a sweet baby girl in our family is a blessing, and there is just a sweet spirit to have a newborn who so recently was in heaven with loved ones and our Heavenly Parents.  I feel strongly that Great Grandma Jones, Great Grandma Winder, Great Grandma Sipp, Rosie, and others all gave her hugs and kisses before she came to us.”

Made me also reflect on Malachi 4:6  “6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers.”   How beautiful is the Plan of the Master.
