139 O Lord, you have psearched me and known me!
2 You qknow when I sit down and when I rise up;
you rdiscern my thoughts from afar.
behold, O Lord, syou know it altogether.
5 You them me in, behind and before,
and ulay your hand upon me.
7 xWhere shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where yshall I flee from your presence?
8 zIf I ascend to heaven, you are there!
aIf I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
10 even there your hand shall blead me,
11 If I say, c“Surely the darkness shall cover me,
12 deven the darkness is not dark to you;
13 For you eformed my inward parts;
you fknitted me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.1
gWonderful are your works;
15 hMy frame was not hidden from you,
intricately woven in ithe depths of the earth.
in your jbook were written, every one of them,
17 How precious to me are your kthoughts, O God!
19 Oh that you would nslay the wicked, O God!
20 They qspeak against you with malicious intent;
21 sDo I not hate those who hate you, O Lord?
David's expression and uncensored emotion toward God is such an amazing example of the personal relationship He wants with each one of us.
Somehow I am now stuck using the same font as this psalm I dragged off a website, but it works. Today we met with the "pros" at UW. Encouraged by their words, but still left in the dark a little. Seems there is only so much we can gauge prior to Esther's birth, and much of that is just guess work. There really aren't any hard statistics or averages to go off. When a child has this type of abnormality it generally restricts organs, such as the lungs, from developing properly. But it really makes no difference as many times a baby with underdeveloped lungs does remarkably well while at other times a baby with nearly fully developed lungs struggles and fails.
Guess we just have to trust in God, and allow Him to carry us.
