Dear Baby Boy Jacobs,
Just want you to know what an amazing momma you have. She just glows as she waits patiently for your arrival in six weeks. She already puts your needs above hers; making sure she takes good care of herself, eating healthy, and learning all she can about Babydom… so that you will grow healthy and strong. When I watch your momma, I see calmness, peacefulness, and strength. She is always loving you, with gentle loving pats on her belly. You have no idea how loved you are. And you know what… as much as your mom and dad love you, there is Someone who loves you even more. Someone who has amazing plans for your life. May you grow strong, Little One, in the shadow of His perfect love.

Psalm 139:13-18 NAS A Psalm of David —
For Thou didst form my inward parts;
Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Thy works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from Thee.
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth.
Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Thy book they were all written,
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
How precious also are Thy Thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with Thee.
Rest well baby boy. You will be busy once you make your appearance!
Love, Your Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa Yohner
So sweet, Ruthie. You are gettng ready for the time of your life. There is nothing like it!
