Our children really are gifts from the Lord. I can't think of anything He has given me that blesses me more than my children. Steve and I have just finished our lovely week with our daughter Elizabeth and Grandson Winston. We were like the thirsty and the starving this last week, as we drank and we ate of the joy of their company. It has been a very full and busy week and a half. We dropped them off at the airport this afternoon, and they are on their way back home even now. It was quiet when we came home... too quiet. I can't help but miss them; even when my tank is full. It is important to remember to rejoice in the blessings He gives us, and to treasure each moment we have. Sometimes when our children are little, we don't think anything will change or that they may someday live in far away places. But the Lord has His plans laid out for them, as well as us. Each season brings change of some sort. It is beautiful when you see His hand at work in their lives; this too is a gift from the Lord. I rejoice in His plans for them and for us, and I rejoice in the joy and the moments He gives to us... they are beautiful rewards.
Behold children are gift from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
I will post some of our highlights in a day or two. Have a lovely week dear friends, and rejoice in your many gifts and blessings.
