last night i lay in bed praying for you and the eminent birth of your sweet #5.
i even awoke from a dream praying for you. see how much the Lord loves
i have a special affinity for you now that we both will have five children. it
is the number of grace and redemption in the bible. here are a few illustrations
of the number five.
historians maintain that the israelites marched out of egypt in ranks of five.
david picked up five smooth stones. I samuel 17:40
the Lord told abram to sacrifice five animals (heifer, goat, ram, dove, and
pigeon.) genesis 15:9
when God changed abram's name to abraham, He added the fifth letter.
"five of you will chase 100 . . ." leviticus 26:8
i know my kids have grown fond of pretending you might name this
precious one "nickel." :) nickel, obviously, stands for five shiny pennies
and is a silvery-white metal.
"and the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace
of clay, purified seven times." psalm 12:6
no pressure. :)
