An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, were spending a day at the zoo. Soon they joined lots of other children who were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist.

"You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" said a little girl who was standing in line in front of the grandson. Embarrassed, the grandson dropped his head.

His grandmother felt a surge of compassion for her grandson, and knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles," she said. "When I was a little girl I always wanted freckles." Tenderly she traced her finger across her grandson's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful!"

The grandson looked up, a ray of hope in his eyes. "Really?" he asked.

"Of course!" said the grandmother. "Why, just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles."

The grandson thought for a moment, peering intensely into his grandma's face. Softly he replied back, "Wrinkles."

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. -Psalms 139:14
