Editor's note- due to the holiday weekend, I missed posting this on time.
The Word was made Flesh . . . Following
Baby Jesus in the womb
Baby is now 8 Weeks
old and well proportioned -- about the size of a thumb. Every organ is present. The liver is making blood, the kidneys function, and the heart beats steadily. The skull, elbows, and knees are forming. Along with the spine, arm and leg bones begin to stiffen as bone cells are added.

The Word Made Flesh for May 23-24, 2015
8 weeks old
Our little girl is now 8 weeks old. Her heart is beating steady- all the organs are present. Mom & Dad can hear her heart beating on the ultrasound, as they follow God's first commandment. In Genesis Chapter 1 and 9, the commandment is given to Adam and Eve, and later repeated to Noah, to be fruitful and multiply. But this isn't only Judaeo-Christian, recent discoveries at Swansea University in Wales while examining a very ancient, very small Egyptian sarcophagus reveal not only its ancient origins, but a fetal mummy, most likely a stillbirth. The loving care of ancient royal parents has something to teach us today- that life truly does begin at conception.
