You are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Hey guys — well, you really all came through!

Last month was Down Syndrome Awareness Month and I asked you to submit your photos to me of loved ones with Down Syndrome who have impacted your life.

The response was overwhelming.

Thank you for all of your e-mails.  Here are some of the gorgeous people who are blessing your lives — and now mine!  Your photos remind me of these verses from Psalm 139:

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

By the way, that message is for all of us — you don’t have to have Down Syndrome to realize God created you with care. :)

Here are your loved ones:

    They are so special and love. Thank you Bristol and all the families that shared their love with us all. It is a joy to watch these beautiful smiles, huge beautiful smiles. Bristol, your family have helped lot of us including me, to see and realize how special these children are. Many of them have grown up but the beautiful innocent smiles is there, shine through their faces. Now, i am more aware of the SD population and take more active in supporting them. God bless them all and their families. God bless you too Bristol, and all the Palin especially Trig.

    ~ spoken by The Psalmist to Our Creator

    DEO GRATIAS for the rugged Palin family who do not cower when the Leftist Bullies unleash. There are so many things about Gov Sarah Palin that trigger their irrational hatred … in fact, you would have to say that EVERYTHING about her drives them nearly crazy with anger, hatred ……. and FEAR

    It is a little known fact but Gov Palin’s appearance on the National Stage on Sep 3rd 2008, (she and her family, including her younger son Trig introduced to > 40M Americans) had a profound impact on the key cultural issue of abortion.

    If you track the bimonthly Gallup Poll numbers for pro-life/pro-choice through 2008, and look what happened at the sep/oct mark, then the trend since, you will see that the pro-life numbers exceeded pro-choice in America for the FIRST time, I think since Gallup has begun polling the issue.

    IMV, THIS statistic is at the root of the Leftists’ FEAR of Gov Sarah Palin and is why they respond with PDS whenever she becomes prominent in the Media. If the Palin family were to live at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, would American Culture continue to move in the current direction of degradation, or is there a chance there would be a cultural swing toward more traditional American values?

    the change, swing from pro-choice to pro-life was huge and marked, right at the sep/oct data point, 2008

    it is very hard to get that evidence back into circulation too …. I have been searching

    the website page I saved back at the end of 2008, showing the bimonthly breakdown of the data, was removed – “is no longer available” (I wonder why? … not .. .)

    the Ruling Class must be very fearful of this circulating, but you can see the crossover (late 2008) on this graphic where the annual numbers have been tracked

      Great thoughts and thoughtfulness. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank you for who you are. Praise the Lord who sustains us.
