Lo, Children are an Heritage of the Lord
As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so the children of them that have been shaken- 127.4
Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with them; he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate - 127.5
These are some of my favourite bible verses. They rank up along with Palm 128:3 -Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine in the inner part of thy house; thy children like olive-plants round about thy table.
I love how it shows the value God places on children. How children are such a part of a family. That we can receive these blessings from him, if we would allow him to give us a gift so wonderful that our hearts fill with such immense love for that child and the God who creates ALL life.
Stephen and I have been open to the gift of children for so long and God has blessed us with our wonderful and gifted children. We have even had the gift of a child that was not able to be a part of our family here on earth but is with our Lord in heaven.
I know some of you may know where I am leading with this AND~
YES we have been blessed with another baby.
We are expecting our baby in May 2011.
Why are you sharing so early some of you may ask?
Why, well why not?
Because we are SO VERY, VERY, VERY EXCITED.
We have prayed for another sweet little one to bless our family and God has answered our prayers. Because we do believe that God is the one in control of how many children we have. Our children are his children and we are so blessed that he would allow us to raise these children to glorify and worship Him.
Even if we are willing to have more children it is God who DECIDES whether will will have another one. This can be a hard road to take as it doesn't always mean that just because we pray and are open that God answers how WE WANT him to.
So our baby is an answer to prayer and we want to share our joy with others.
After all if we had won a million dollars we would share that good news with others and a baby from God is a WHOLE lot better than a million dollars now isn't it?
Blessings to you and your homes,
