September to Remember

Treasure of My Heart: Precious Gifts of God

Baby Sophia Rose at 1 day old

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). Although these words have always been a source of comfort and encouragement to me, they came to have a special meaning for our entire family as our daughter-in-love spent 44 days in the hospital pregnant with our granddaughter.

During those days, we prayed for our daughter-in-love, our son, and baby Sophia Rose and for all the doctors and nurses who provided their loving care. We prayed for all pregnant mothers as they carried the precious gifts God gave them. We prayed that baby Sophia and these incredible little ones would know of God’s love for them and how He knitted them together as unique and special individuals.

Isn’t that what we all want for all our children ─ to have them know God’s love for them? As Lutheran Women in Mission, we want God’s children around the world to know that God loved them so much He sent His Son as Savior and Redeemer. Our mite offerings over the last 80 years and hopefully, for the 80 years to come help share this Gospel message.

On September 13, I will donate a monetary gift to the LWML in honor of our precious granddaughter Sophia Rose who was born in August. My prayer is that many more of God’s children may hear of His saving grace. Join me in spreading the Good News!
