oday during lunch as I was sitting next to my youngest, (my 5 year old baby boy), I was questioned by him:
Baby Boy: “Mom, are you glad you had kids?”
Me – “Yup – everyone one of them.”
Baby Boy: “Even me?”
Me: “Absolutely! Even you!”
He giggled with a big smile and continued eating his mac and cheese. It delighted my heart. Later I put our conversation on Facebook. One of my married daughters who I am going to be seeing today, responded:
“You should bring him with you today. I miss him.”
I am so thankful God is the Giver of Life. He gave me not only my life on earth, and prevented my birth mom from aborting me, but gave me eternal life. I cannot imagine my life without children. I am thankful God allowed me to have a dozen children and yes even for the two at His feet. They do have life with Him. I am thankful for the life God has given through His Son, who first came as a baby, specifically, to die for us, to give us eternal life. I am thankful for the times He has preserved my life – and my children’s.
The Spirit of God has made me,
and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Truly, truly, I say to you,
whoever hears My word and believes Him
who sent Me has eternal life.
He does not come into judgment,
but has passed from death to life.
