Portraits of a 12-Year-Old

For God created her inmost being;
God knit her together in my womb.
I praise God because she is fearfully and wonderfully made;
God's works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

Her frame was not hidden from God
when God made her in the secret place,

when she was woven together in the depths of the earth.
God's eyes saw her unformed body;
All the days ordained for her were written in God's book
before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139:13-16 but I changed the voice/pronouns

And that's a Bonnie Butter marble cake from Betty Crocker's cookbook that she made entirely herself and tinted the yellow part pink.  It was delicious.
