Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.
Happy 39th Lorelei Gregory; my 4th cousin.
Jean Gregory Leffell was born 81 years ago today in 1927 and passed away March 7, 2008. She was my 3rd cousin, once removed. Buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, near Shawvers Mill.
