Dahi Gobi, Kashmiri Style

He could not take his eyes off her. He could read her with one look in her eyes. He stood frozen seeing the precious piece of him in his hands. I know you are puzzled! God gifted my close friend, a cute little baby girl recently. And the glee in his eyes which I have never seen before, flashes in my memory now n then. If you and me admire our baby in this world so much, how much more our Daddy God would admire creating us. For HE says,

you are formed in my thoughts, before you were formed in your mother’s womb.

He created us in HIS own image which means we are an authentic design. No matter what background you have, you are an A-U-T-H-E-N-T-I-C D-E-S-I-G-N 🙂
