Children are a Gift!

Photobucket

Don't you see that children are God's best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy? Like a warrior's fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth. Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children! Your enemies don't stand a chance against you; you'll sweep them right off your doorstep. ~ Psalm 127:3-5 {the message}

What joy I have in knowing that my children are a gift from my Heavenly Father made just for me and sent down from heaven above! What greater gift, other than the gift of salvation, is there?

What started out as a simple "yes" turned into having more paint on his body, hair, and face than on the actual paper! However, after seeing this smiling, paint smeared face, and knowing how much fun he was having, as well as knowing the paint was washable, I knew it was all worth it! One of the simple joys of parenting!
