no more Mr. Nice Guy

No more? No way... just this one shot. Actually, this boy is super sweet and enjoyable. We are absolutely spoiled to have such an easy, delightful baby. What a gracious gift from God for this traveling season for our family... and far beyond that. Children are such a great blessing from God.

Recently, I've been reading a bit and thinking over and discussing with some godly friends the topic of children.... and specifically, having lots of them. I don't know how many we'll end up aiming to have, but I know that each one of them is a privilege to know, to train, to raise up to know and love the Lord.

So often I think it's easy to think of "blessings" from God as being all the easy comfy things of this world, but God has said these little treasures are straight from him and are good gifts.... We glady agree,
with a tired, but still joyful "Amen!"

Thank you Lord for these three blessings in our lives.


  1. Oh little John is so sweet! Elijah asked about him for quite some time after you left here. Amen to what you said about children being a blessing. We were just discussing that in a Bible study I have been doing. Yes, there is much worl involved with having kids but they are such a joy in return!

  2. So sweet! Missing you all. Praying for your time in the States! Amen to the blessing- the more preggo I get here the more I get to talk to people about the BLESSING of children and not the BURDEN. Sad that this place has taken a lot of the joy out of child rearing to make it more of a duty....I could go on and on! Anyway, much SH love! Em
