What a Gift!

It really bothers me when people make negative comments about having babies/the number of children someone has. Children are a blessing NEVER a burden!
Psalm 127:3"Children are a gift from the Lord, they are a reward from Him."
What an Honor!

Everyday I sit back and think about this amazing, astounding gift God has given me. My heart grieves when I hear people saying negative things about having children. Like the common,
"You're going to lose your freedom."
"Enjoy never sleeping again."
"You have HOW many kids?"
"Why would you want to have kids so early into your marriage?"
These words grieve my heart because when I hear them I'm reminded how much our country and society has devaulued our children. To make us think that children are burdens. How sad.

I have a coworker who is 8 months pregnant with her 4th baby. I overheard her talking to a customer yesterday who was being extrememly rude. When the customer heard that she was having her 4th baby she told her she was out of her mind. Then when the customer got up to leave she told my coworker to have her tubes tied!
That's the kind of society we live in?!
Having a child is an honor, a gift that should never be taken for granted!

Psalm 127:3(The Message)
"Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift?
    the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?
Like a warrior’s fistful of arrows
    are the children of a vigorous youth.
Oh, how blessed are you parents,
    with your quivers full of children!"

I'm thanking God for giving me this baby, this gift! Hallelujah!


  1. I know what you mean!! I'm pregnant with only my second, and already someone asked if I was going to be done if it is a boy, since I'd have a boy and a girl and it'd be perfect. No way! I want at least 4.

    We also got interesting comments on the fact that we married so young (at age 20).

    I'd rather spend most of my life, including my young, energetic years, with my husband and kids than single!

    1. I totally agree with you there! My husband and I were married at 20 and 21 and I wouldn't have had it any other way! :)

  2. Amen & amen! I honestly don't know why people ask such a question. When I got pregnant right after marriage people looked at me sometimes like I was so unwise. But that's what Married people are supposed to do! As my husband says so awesomely "Be fruitful & multiply" haha! Jesus Loves children. It's just sad how people think of them as a burden. That right there is proof that they need Jesus in their lives.

    Love this post girl! You got me saying amen and amen with every sentence!! This post really spoke to my heart! Well as you know "Life" is a passion of mine! Love you xoxo

  3. oh gosh it makes me so frustrated when people say that too. i don't have kids but alot of my friends do and it makesk me sad for people who say that.

  4. I feel the exact same way. A lot of people give me grief because I usually always take my kids every where I go and do not really let just anyone watch them but those are my babies and I will do everything I can to protect them and be with them. Your Newest follower from I hope you will check out my link party on thursday called Instagram Thursday.

  5. Oh my goodness, how rude of that customer! I completely agree with you, I think our society does devalue children, but they are such a blessing!
