My mother shared the following revelation about the day she was conceived. In the following conversation, though all the souls ever created are present, there is a bond between the great presence and the smaller presence that is completely undisturbed by the other souls. This is a very private and focused moment.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.
- Jer 1:4)

I have chosen this time for you. Will you go?
Oh yes, Lord. I am ready!
I do not promise you an easy life.
I accept whatever you desire for me, Lord.
It will be difficult at times.
Soul: You are my God, I trust in You!
A child is conceived. Nine months later, the baby breathes air for the first time and lets out its first cries. This is my mother.

Let your every creature serve you; for you spoke, and they were made, You sent forth your spirit, and they were created; no one can resist your word. - Judith 16:14, New American Bible
