A Gift.

“Children bring much joy to marriage. The older you get and the more you mature,
the more you realize that every other ‘thing’ we strive after in this life is fleeting and will pass away.
It is our children that are lasting gifts that will keep forever.
We can take them into eternity with us. Everything else will be left behind.
Wise couples will want the gifts that are lasting.”
-Nancy Campbell

Whether you have one, two or twelve children, they are gifts from the Lord. Lasting gifts … how wonderful … !

Here’s a quick photo of our newest gift, Lavender. She is such a delight!

admin Erin, Thank you for your comment. I understand the conflict and the pressure that society puts on the women to work outside the home. It’s hard to let things go in order to be at home full time, however, be encouraged and know you are working at an eternal job, the most precious job on earth! Making memories, molding their character, teaching them and just being there for them – no one else can do that except a mother. It is a great blessing to be chosen by God to raise your little ones! There’s always time for work later, like you said. Try to find good friends who will encourage you in the same choices – that helps with the pressure that the world creates, as well.
Have a great day with your children!

Erin Lynn So beautiful! Loved the quote and your last post. So much I could relate to. I have made some hard choices about not working while I am back in school (online) just because time is so fleeting with my little ones. We can always go back to work, we won’t always have time with our precious little ones. Just being honest, I still get conflicted, and I feel like I need to get a job, as I think society puts so much worth on our work outside the home. Especially when someone asks about my work. But then I look in their little eyes, or read one of your posts, and know its all worth it. For years, I have left my children with sitters so I could work, now I have the time, and I can make memories with them.
