Psalm 127:3-5 “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.”
Our family is grateful to God for the gift He gave us this past Tuesday of a new daughter, Anna Grace. Anna is our sixth child and we are grateful to God for each one of them. We welcome you little Anna. May you come to know Christ the Savior. We pray that you will serve Him all your days and do His will. May you marry a man who knows and serves God and bear children for God’s glory.
You enter a world that is hostile toward God and for all its talk, toward children also but do not worry, your God is mighty and will prevail. In our eyes you are a gift and a blessing not a punishment.
On your behalf and on the behalf of all children we will go out to the gate to speak to God’s enemies to call them to repent and be reconciled to Him and we will not be ashamed.
