We are blessed. I knew that children are a blessing, and I knew that twins would be a double blessing, but I never could have imagined how great that double blessing would be. When I look at my two babies I am awed by the goodness of God. If we must be done having children, what a way to go out–with not one baby but two to love and enjoy. Last night, as I looked at them lying side-by-side on my lap, I said to my husband, “My joy couldn’t be more full….” They are incredible gifts, and I love them.
And then there’s Abel… probably the only son we’ll ever have. He is such a big little boy. He’s smart, attentive, caring, and responsible. He’s my companion and my extra set of hands. He is a gift, and I love him.
And Amariah. She has such a love for life. She’s sweet, cute, silly, and fun. She’ll steal your heart in an instant. She is a gift, and I love her.
“Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” (Psalm 127:3)
