Thanksgiving For Life and Birth

“You showed Your mercy before I could perceive it. You came to me with Your Kindness before I could long for it. Your generosity encompassed me before I could offer thanks for it. You not only marvelously formed me in my mother’s womb, but also drew me out from the womb. You have been my hope since I was at my mother’s breast. I was cast on you from birth. From my mother’s womb you have been my God.”
— Johann Gerhard, “Thanksgiving for Life and Birth,” Meditations on Divine Mercy

Mollie Ziegler Hemingway, the Lutheran diva over at Get Religion
