Queen Victoria is now the sweet age of four. On Mother's Day, she and I reflected back on her birth.
Me: I remember that we waited and waited forever for you to be born.
Victoria: (while swinging) Oh, yes, I was living in my mommy's heart and my daddy's heart.
Me: (watching her swing) Uh...yes.
Victoria: (continuing to swing) Yes, I was just a twinkle in my mommy's eye!
I could see this birth story was beyond me. She had it all figured out.
At the beginning of the week, I had the verse "I am fearfully and wonderfully made" at the forefront of my mind. It must be a key verse for the world this week, because I keep seeing it pop up.
I've also been reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan and came across a passage about this: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." [Jeremiah 1:5]
Wow. Victoria really does have it figured out. A four year old has a much better grasp than me of what it's like to know that you were known even before you were born.
I pray she knows for all her days that she was a twinkle in God's eye and in His heart. And that I would one day be able to recount so easily God's knowledge of me.
