Thankful Thursday- Children

It feels good to post 2 times in a row for this Meme. It's one of my favorites! Iris@Grace Alone is our host for the month of September. Check her out and link up with us.

I am so thankful for my children. I never really wanted children. I was one of those that kids and me just did not mix. I was one of those that every kid I met got on my nerves somehow. I always wanted to be married,but without kids. I was also scared of the pain of pregnancy,labor,and child birth. Well, look at me now... 3 boys in 3 1/2 years. I will be honest and say I was not overly excited when I became pregnant with our first baby. I was scared out of my wits! I was thinking, 'What will I do with a child?' I mean we had no idea what to expect at all. God gave me peace and He instilled in me a heart for my child and now children. I would die for them if need be. I love them so much that sometimes it does hurt. After our first son Daniel, I was in love. Then, came Aaron and I fell in love again. Sweet smiles,coos,the smell,and not to mention the touch. Then, it happened again,I had Johnathan and there is just something so sweet about him. You know when you can just sense something about someone? That's how it is with Johnathan. He has a very sweet spirit. Sure kids can interfere with your plans in general and maybe even as a whole. I wanted to do a lot of things before kids,but now my desire is to stay home with them and teach them. They also can really get on your nerves,but don't the people you work with? You don't not go to work do you? Kids are just that kids,but so much more in God's eyes. My boys are so special to me. I stay tired,sleepy,and hungry some days,but one day they will be gone and grown or one day they may pass before me. So I am trying to learn to die to my self,this is an on going process too and should be for any Christian,kids or no kids. I am thankful God chose me to be their Mama and I pray I lead them in His truths.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Sounds like you and I have made the same journey and many of the same discoveries along the way. I still wouldn't call myself "a kid person," but I LOVE my girls and I want nothing more than to just be their mother. I'm so thankful God gave me a special love for them and that He changed my heart about having my ministry ~ my JOB ~ in my own home.

  2. Aww that is so sweet. Isn't it amazing how God can lead you down a path, you would never thought you would want to go, and it ends up being the best blessing of your life? Totally awesome!

  3. Children truly are blessings from the Lord. What a wonderful testimony this is to Gods grace.
