A gift with a message

IMG_3342wm
One of my most popular items are burp cloths.  Sometimes moms buy them for their own babies, but mostly friends and loved ones order them as gifts.  Sometimes I'm given very specific details--colors, fabrics, etc.  Sometimes I'm told to just use boy or girl colors.
If given an opportunity, I try to use one of my word art designs.  They're all special to me because they have a message that can bless moms and babies.  All of the photos here are the same design in different colors and fabrics, but it's really the message that is the focus.
Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
Even before there is a word on my tongue,
Behold, O Lord, You know it all.
You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.  
Psalm 139:1-6

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
Psalm 139:13-16

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.
Psalm 139:17-18

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
And see if there be any hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way.
Psalm 139:23-24
